PMID:  11523619     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
The authors devised a nonthoracotomy defibrillation system for a patient with a prosthetic tricuspid valve using existing technology and previously established implantation techniques. Their lead configuration deviates substantially from existing designs in its primary use of a coronary sinus defibrillation coil and a left-sided subcutaneous array to distribute current across the ventricular myocardium.
