BACKGROUND Patient's health-related quality of life (HRQoL) of pacemaker (PM) patients has increasingly become an important issue of health care evaluation. Currently, knowledge of pacing performance and technology is more or less outlined. However, determinants of poor or good HRQoL of paced patients require further elucidation. OBJECTIVES The purpose of this study is to determine the HRQoL 1 year after PM implantation and predictors of differences in HRQoL between pre- and post-PM… CONTINUE READING
