Transvenous implantation of a cardiac resynchronization therapy defibrillator (CRT-D) may not be feasible due to anatomic constraints. One of the most notable advances in minimal-access heart surgery has been the introduction of robotic telemanipulation systems. We present a challenging case in which a CRT-D system was implanted using a robotic approach. Feasibility of such an approach expands the horizons for delivery of CRT-D therapy.
