I swear I'll stop posting so much soon, I just got on this site today :-). Anyway, I was wondering if anyone knew of advances in ICD technology, more importantly (to me anyway) the size of the devices. Does anyone know of smaller, thinner devices in the works? I've tried to find info on it but all I find is that St. Jude's came out with flatter leads. It seems like the devices haven't really reduced in size from the 90's. I think the problem is that battery technology has basically come to a halt and they can't make them any smaller without having to replace them every couple of years. I'm really hoping one day soon they make them so thin that it won't bulge out of the skin and will basically be unnoticeable. Seems like I'm the only one worried about it bulging out of my skin :-).
