Southcoast First in Mass. and R.I. to Implant World's Smallest Defibrillator

Southcoast Health recently became the first health system in Mass. and R.I. to successfully implant the new Boston Scientific INOGEN MINI ICD. Cardiologist Nitesh Sood, MD, performed the procedure at Charlton Memorial Hospital in Fall River.

The new ICD is the world’s smallest defibrillator and is noticeably more comfortable than its competitors. Having access to this groundbreaking technology is proving to be yet another beneficial asset to Southcoast and its patients.  As Dr. Sood said, “This is just one more example of the depth and breadth of cardiac services available locally at Southcoast Health hospitals.”

ICDs are designed to treat patients who suffer from heart failure and to provide protection to those at risk of sudden cardiac arrest.  According to the American Heart Association, sudden cardiac death is a leading cause of death in the United States.
