Abstract

Objectives: Dual-chamber pacing is believed to have an advantage over single-chamber ventricular pacing. The aim of this study was to determine whether elderly patients who have implanted pacemakers for complete atrioventricular block gain significant benefits from dual-chamber (DOD) pacemakers compared with single chamber ventricular (VVIR) pacemakers.
