Abstract: 
Pacemakers and implantable cardioverter defibrillators have become more common in younger individuals, owing to broader indications and technological advances. Our goal was to report our long-term experience of implanting cardiac devices in young adults via a subaxillary approach with a hidden single incision, to minimize the aesthetic impact of the device.
