Implantable Medical Devices

A medical device is considered implantable if it is either partly or totally introduced surgically into the human body and is intended to remain there after the procedure. It is estimated that 10% of the American population and 5% to 6% of people in industrialized countries have an implantable medical device of some sort to help rebuild body functions, achieve a better quality of life, or expand longevity. Examples of implantable devices include ICDs, LVADs, pacemakers, auditory implants (cochlear), pacemakers and pumps. They typically consist of a microelectronic system encapsulated in a hermetically sealed canister with electrodes connecting the device to the body part/organ.
