Objectives To determine contemporary population estimates of the prevalence of cardiac permanent pacemaker (PPM) insertions. Methods A population-based observational study using linked hospital morbidity and death registry data from Western Australia (WA) to identify all incident cases of PPM insertion for adults aged 18 years or older. Prevalence rates were calculated by age and sex for the years 1995–2009 for the WA population. Results There were 9782 PPMs inserted during 1995–2009… 
Gender differences and demographics and type of cardiac device over a 10-year period
TLDR
There was no significant difference between female and male patients in pacing mode selection, mostly VVI pacing mode was chosen; however, over a 10-year period pacemaker selection shifted from VVI to DDD pacemakers.
Anxiety in patients with permanent cardiac pacemaker aged > 60 years old
TLDR
Though pacemaker is an opportunity to prolong survival, however systematic assessment of anxiety and all the associated factors is considered to be of primary importance in clinical pacemaker settings.
Early experience with permanent pacemaker implantation at a tertiary hospital in Nigeria
TLDR
Complete heart block is the most common indication for permanent pacemaker implantation and the procedure is safe with minimal complications and satisfactory outcomes.
Trend in Age at the Initial Pacemaker Implantation in Patients With Bradyarrhythmia - A 50-Year Analysis (1970-2019) in Japan.
TLDR
The average age at initial pacemaker implantation in Japan increased by 12.1 years over the last 50 years in Japan, in particular, the ratios of ≥80 and ≥90 years as the patients age increased significantly.
Gender differences in dual-chamber pacemaker implantation indications and long-term outcomes
TLDR
There is an association between gender and indications to DDD pacing therapy and the rate of adverse events was similar in both genders, and in the group without prior paroxysmal AF, women developed permanent AF more frequently.

TLDR
The analyses show that the prevalence rate is steadily increasing as a result of a combination of an increasing incidence rate and a stable mortality rate among the pacemaker patients.

TLDR
These data provide the first nationwide, population-based estimates of the epidemiology of pacemaker implantation, focusing particularly on the demographics of U.S. pacemaker recipients.

TLDR
Overall, adverse outcomes were associated with advanced age, comorbid conditions, and emergency admissions, and there was no consistent volume–outcome relationship across different outcome measures and patient groups.
The World Survey of Cardiac Pacing and Cardioverter Defibrillators: Calendar Year 2001
TLDR
A worldwide cardiac pacing and ICD survey was undertaken for calendar year 2001 and the United States had by far the largest number of cardiac pacemaker implants, although Germany had the highest new implants per million population.
The World Survey of Cardiac Pacing and Implantable Cardioverter Defibrillators: Calendar Year 1997 ‐ Europe
TLDR
Pacing and ICD practices were dependent on the availability of medical and technical resources and influenced by economic constraints inherent in health care administration and insurance coverage patterns.
