In most cases, the wires are left in.u u uNationally, more than 100,000 patients have surgeries to implant defibrillators each year.
Conventional defibrillators , known as transvenous defibrillators , are implanted with wires, called the leads, that snake through veins into the heart.
Leads connect the heart to defibrillators , implantable.
The test also has been given to a group of 43 patients who have had heart failure but no history of having had implanted defibrillators and 28 participants of the same age without histories of heart failure or implanted defibrillators .

In science:

Implantation and decay events were correlated in different detectors depending of the implantation depth of the 45Fe ions.
Two-proton radioactivity
From the observation of the second decay after 45Fe implantation, the half-life of the daughter decay, in coincidence with the 1.151 MeV peak, could be determined.
Two-proton radioactivity
The fragments of interest were selected and separated with the LISE3 separator and implanted in a silicon telescope with a double-sided silicon strip detector being the central device.
Two-proton radioactivity
The setup allowed correlating in time and space these implantation events with subsequent decays.
Two-proton radioactivity
Seven of the eight implantation events are followed by a decay with an energy release of 1.48(2) MeV (see Fig. 13).
