Condition or disease

Study Type : Observational
Estimated Enrollment : 5000 participants
Observational Model: Ecologic or Community
Time Perspective: Retrospective
Official Title: Trends in Cardiac Pacing - 30 Years of Implants
Study Start Date : March 2010
Estimated Primary Completion Date : March 2011
Estimated Study Completion Date : March 2011

All paced patients

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Cardiovascular Mortality [ Time Frame: 30 years ]
    We will examine time to cardiovascular death from pacemaker implant and relate to the differing indications for pacing
