Placement of Permanent Pacemaker Study
The purpose of this study is to determine the predictors for placement of permanent pacemakers soon after cardiac surgery. We will measure the following to see what influence, if any, they have on predicting the need for permanent pacemaker implantation.
- Type of cardiac surgery
- Gender of patient
- Patient's age
- Preoperative heart rhythm and rate
- Duration on cardiopulmonary bypass
- Immediate post cardiopulmonary bypass heart rhythm and rate.
- All heart rhythms and rates identified in the postoperative period prior to permanent pacemaker implantation.
- Underlying heart rhythm and rates when permanent pacemaker is placed.
- Ejection fraction before surgery
- Ejection fraction immediately post-cardiopulmonary bypass

|Study Design:||Time Perspective: Retrospective|
|Official Title:||A Retrospective Study to Determine the Frequency of Indications That Lead to the Placement of Permanent Pacemakers After Cardiac Surgery|

|Primary Completion Date:||December 2011 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)|
The purpose of this study is to determine the predictors for placement of permanent pacemakers soon after cardiac surgery. We will measure the following to see what influence, if any, they have on predicting the need for permanent pacemaker implantation. Through investigation into the co-morbidities, diagnoses, or histories associated with an endpoint permanent pacemaker placement, it is possible that we will garner a better idea of who will require PPP.
