OTTAWA – A new ground-breaking technology was recently used at the University of Ottawa Heart Institute (UOHI) where two cardiologists, Dr. David Birnie and Dr. Pablo Nery, implanted a new innovative leadless defibrillator, the subcutaneous implantable cardioverter defibrillator (S-ICD), to a 18-year-old patient. Under Health Canada’s special access program, this was only the third time this new type of ICD had been implanted in Canada.
