Abstract:

About 3 million pacemakers are implanted worldwide and each year about 600.000 new implants occurs. The current pacemaker provides the benefit, but it has also disadvantages since they may have unwanted impact on the apical pacing of the right and left heart ventricle. Some of them include adverse events li. The new recent pacemakers are magnetic resonance imaging safe.  That’s why the future pacemakers should provide more physiological pacing, and possible wireless pacemakers with a implanted different location in the heart. The current proposed location is inside the coronary venous sinus system. This device is implanted into coronary sinus by the balloon Tran’s catheter delivered system, eliminating the need for the cardio surgery procedure. The wireless remote pacing and management with digital mobile applications will be the future of cardiology. The patient mobile phones will be of great assist in the connection with a wireless pacing technology. So, the future trend in pacemaker’s technology will provide better design of pacemakers, longer battery duration and good safety profile.
