Abstract/OtherAbstract:
A general update on pacemakers and cardiac pacing in Japan in 1981 is presented, including costs, prepacing studies, follow-up, pacing center activity, average number of first implants per million inhabitants, age of patients at first implantation, clinical indications for pacing, etiology, prepacing electrocardiogram, pacemaker hardware, electrode leads, electrocardiogram indications for pacing, indications for generator or electrode changes, and extended application of pacing. The author's data are compared with those obtained by the survey of the Seventh World Symposium on Cardiac Pacing.
