The aim of this study was to evaluate the long term results of atrial pacing. There were 27 atrial pacemaker implantations and 26 out of them were followed for an average of 47, 04 months. Lead dislodgement occurred in two cases, which made necessary a ventricular pacing. Three other patients developed chronic atrial fibrillation. The late results of the remaining 21 patients were very good. No AV-block occurred during the follow-up period. The atrial pacing in selected patients is safe and reliable, and financial restraints makes it advantageous for economic reason.
