This chapter discusses device therapy in ACHD. Insertion of devices in these patients requires special consideration. Knowledge of underlying anatomy, previous surgical procedures, and vascular access routes; an understanding of problems likely to be encountered with lead placement in complex hearts; and obtaining a stable position are all crucial. This chapter discusses bradycardia pacing, implantable cardiac defibrillators (ICD), cardiac resynchronization therapy (CRT), and technical considerations for device therapy in ACHD.
