AIMS The aim of the study was to evaluate the effects of increasing patients' age onto procedural parameters, especially complications, during primary pacemaker implantation, evaluating the database of the Institute of Quality Assurance Hessen in the federal state of Hessen, Germany. METHODS AND RESULTS The database of the obligatory external quality control program was evaluated retrospectively for the years 2003-2006. A total of 17 826 patients undergoing stationary primary pacemaker… CONTINUE READING
