This morning, a nice article in the Boston Globe appeared on Boston Scientific's subcutaneous implantable cardiac defibrillator (S-ICD)  that recently received FDA approval.  It was a fairly balanced article, one that touched ever-so-briefly on the pros and cons of a subcutaneous device to treat life-threatening cardiac arrhythmias using a medical device that does not require an internal wire inside the heart, but rather a sensing and shocking lead that is tunneled across the chest under the skin (see my prior post on the details here).
