WFAA features new heart device at Texas Health Dallas
Last night’s newscast on WFAA (Ch. 8) featured Dr. Brian Le, cardiologist and director of electrophysiology at Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital Dallas, who became the first surgeon in Texas to offer patients the new subcutaneous implantable-cardiac defibrillator. This device is similar to a traditional defibrillator in that it delivers an electric shock to the heart if it detects abnormal cardiac rhythm. But the new subcutaneous ICD does so without the electrical leads placed directly into the heart. Texas Health Dallas patient, Sally Killion, was one of the first to undergo the procedure and she shared her story as well. View the story here.
