Purpose: the aim of the present study was to evaluate the outcome of patients underwent subcutaneous implantable cardioverter defibrillator (S-ICD) implantation with the intermuscular (IM) two‐incision technique during 3-year followup. Methods: the study population consisted of 105 consecutive patients (79 male; median 50 [13‐77] years) underwent S-ICD implantation with the IM two‐incision technique. The composite primary end point of the study consisted of device-related complications and inappropriate shocks (IAS). Secondary end points included the individual components of the primary end point, death from any cause, appropriate therapy, major adverse cardiac events, hospitalization for heart failure, heart transplantation. Results: according to the PRAETORIAN score, the risk of conversion failure was classified as low in 99 patients (94.3%), intermediate in 6 (5.7%).Ventricular fibrillation was successfully converted at ≤65 J in 97.4% of patients. During a median follow-up of 39 (16-53) months, 10 patients (9.5%) experienced device-related complications and 9 (8.5%) patients reported inappropriate shocks (IAS). Leadassociated complications were the most common (5 patients, 4.7%), including 2 cases of lead failure (1.9%). Pocket complications were reported in 2 patients (1.9%). Extra-cardiac oversensing (3.8%) represented the leading cause of IAS. No T-wave oversensing episodes were recorded. Twelve patients (11.4%) experienced appropriate shocks. Eight patients (7.6%) died during follow-up. IAS or device-related complications did not impact on mortality. Conclusions: the overall device-related complications and IAS rates over 3 years of follow-up were 9.5% and 8.5%, respectively. According to our findings, the IM two-incision technique allows for optimal positioning of the device achieving a low PRAETORIAN score with a high conversion rate. IM two-incision technique allows low incidence of pocket complications, shifting the type of complications towards lead-related complications, which represent the most common complications. The IM two-incision technique would not seem to impact the occurrence of IAS. Management of complications are safe without impact on the outcome.
