Abstract: The number of patients with implantable cardioverter-defibrillator (ICD) is rapidly increasing due to their expanding indications. Amongst the various types of electromagnetic interferences, little is reported about the effects of radiotherapy. We report a case of electrical reset of a single chamber ICD by scattered irradiation from radiotherapy.
