Device: Implantation of a cardiac implantable electronic device
Multicentric, observational, prospective registry enrolling consecutive patients underwent pacemaker or defibrillator implantation, aimed to evaluate the impact of cardiac implantable device complications requiring surgical revision on healthcare utilization (number and length of hospitalizations), and on patient outcome (all-cause mortality and cardiac mortality), during a long-term follow-up.
