Limited data exist regarding temporal trends in permanent pacemaker (PPM) implantation. To describe trends in incidence and comorbidities of PPM recipients, the investigators aim to conduct a retrospective population-based cohort study using record linkage, over a 32 year period.


Study Type: Observational
Study Design: Observational Model: Ecologic or Community
Time Perspective: Retrospective
Official Title: Trends in Cardiac Pacing - 30 Years of Implants

Further study details as provided by University of Dundee:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Cardiovascular Mortality [ Time Frame: 30 years ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    We will examine time to cardiovascular death from pacemaker implant and relate to the differing indications for pacing

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Hospitalisation for heart failure [ Time Frame: 30 years ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    We will examine the frequency of hospitalisations after device implantation

Estimated Enrollment: 5000
Study Start Date: March 2010
Estimated Study Completion Date: March 2011
Estimated Primary Completion Date: March 2011 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
