    Warren i had a ICD implanted in 1998, in 2009 my EP wanted to extract a lead and put another one. He said not to worry 97% success rate. 2% the vain might rupture and 1% fatal. After repairing the vain inside of my heart I spent 25 days in ICU, and one week on life Support in a coma, they installed the next ICD ST JUDE model on my right side. Never again will I let
    Anyone touch my leads. Since then they have installed 3 more
    ICD with no problems next month my 4th.
