Description and analysis of permanent pacemakers implantation procedures at the institutional electrophysiology laboratory in a 9-year period. A total of 1265 procedures were retrospectively reviewed. Median age of implantation was 77 years, with men being the majority. Atrioventricular block and sinus node disease were the most frequent indications. Sequential dual chamber pacing was the most common programming mode in patients under 80 years old. The average follow-up was 45 months and there was a complete follow-up in 90.7% of the patients. A low complication rate was observed (0.8% of procedures).
