How many kids get ICDs?

1 to 2 percent of all implants are in children. That may not seem like many, but do know your child won't be alone. Talking with other parents of kids with ICDs can help reduce feeling singled out or isolated.   There are support groups all over the country filled with kids still being kids after getting an ICD. To find a group near you, ask your clinic or contact Medtronic Patient Services.
