percent), 1-year all-cause hospitalization (unadjusted rate, 43.86 percent vs. 44.83 percent), or hospitalization for heart failure (unadjusted rate, 14.73 percent vs. 15.38 percent).

“Because implanting a dual-chamber ICD is a more complex and time-consuming procedure than implanting a single-chamber device, the possibility of device-related complications such as infection and lead displacement are higher,” Peterson says. “The decision to implant a dual-chamber ICD should be considered carefully.”

Peterson’s work is supported by a grant from the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality. This research also was supported by the American College of Cardiology Foundation’s National Cardiovascular Data Registry (NCDR).
