Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

The number of children that require a permanent pacemaker is increasing. The Authors report on a study on 304 children (40% females) that underwent to PM implantation. After a short report on the implantation techniques the Authors discuss the doserved results of the PM implantation. The lenght of the follow-up was 5 ± 4 years. In conclusion, permanent pacing in pediatric patients is safe with a favorable long term outcome, but still has an high rate of complication, expecially related to leads. This is particularly of concern in children who need a lifetime of pacing.
