Ongoing improvements and enhancements to cardiac pacing devices have expanded the indications for pacing therapy. Device therapy is now used for hemodynamic management as well as for rhythm management. Clinical trials have provided some insight into differences between men and women in indications for various pacing therapies and their responses to therapy. This chapter reviews important clinical trials that highlight differences in indications, implantation techniques, complications, outcomes, and survival among women who undergo pacing and cardiac resynchronization therapy.
