AbstractThe number of patients who can benefit from implantable cardiac pacemaker for the treatment of bradycardia is steadily increasing due to the ageing population. Over the past 50 years, there have been remarkable technological advances in the pacing technology. Current pacemakers have extended battery longevity and are equipped with complex device features including advanced telemetry monitoring (wireless, home monitoring), auto-programmability, and multiple rate-adaptive sensor technology. Furthermore, new-generation leads have steroid-eluting tips and better surface coating to reduce long-term pacing threshold and increase their lifespan, respectively. These advances should further improve patient care for treatment of bradycardias; nevertheless, the optimal pacing sites for ventricular pacing as well as the clinical benefit of remote monitoring need to be further studied.
