In brief: Rejection

A AICD is a metal encased device, rejection is not an issue.
The body will encase the device with fibrous tissue. Rejection is an issue with body tissue and not a metal device. So be assured.

In brief: AICD

the defibrillator is not made of a material that can be rejected.
There are possible problems but rejection isn't one of them.
