We report the activity concerning permanent cardiac pacing in Spain during year 1995, based on data submitted to the National Pacemaker Registry corresponding to the European Pacemaker Card. We describe population, etiology and electrocardiographic alterations that determined the need for stimulation and the global distribution of stimulation modes (AAI 1.7%; DDD 20.2%; VDD 11.3% and VVI 66.8%). We emphasize, among other aspects, stimulation in A-V block cases, in sick-sinus syndrome and tendencies compared to 1994's data and limited data corresponding to 1996.
