Publication types: English Abstract ; Journal Article ; Review
The implantable loop recorder developed by Medtronic (Reveal plus) is a small device inserted subcutaneously under local anesthesia in patients with syncope of unexplained origin. This device enables a single lead-ECG recording and has autonomy of two years. Memories are activated during episodes of bradycardia or tachycardia, either automatically or manually. Several studies have shown a high diagnostic rate reaching 50% and demonstrated its cost-effectiveness. There is also a significant reduction in syncopal episodes and a higher quality of life score in patients with syncope of unexplained origin.
