In this case report, we look into the implant procedure of a single-lead ICD with floating atrial sensing dipole in a pregnant woman, without using fluoroscopy. This system benefits the proper positioning of the lead. This is possible thanks to the simultaneous display of both the atrial and ventricular dipoles on the electro-anatomical mapping system. This technique may be taken into consideration for the few rare cases where fluoroscopy is absolutely contraindicated.
