Abstract

Background: Permanent cardiac pacemakers (PCM) are accepted as the most effective treatment for symptomatic bradyarrhythmias. Serum uric acid (UA) levels are associated with various inflammatory markers, oxidative stress, and endothelial dysfunction. This study aimed to investigate the association between serum UA and ventricular pacing threshold (VPT) levels in patients who underwent permanent pacemaker implantation.
