The frequency of pulse pressure (PP) and patients migration between PP classes in 220 patients (110 men and 110 women) in average age (70 ± 9) years in the early period after pacemaker implantation (3-5 days) in VVI/VVIR, DDD/DDDR, CRT-P/D pacing modes with atrioventricular block, bundle brunch block, sick sinus node syndrome, permanent bradysystolic form of atrial fibrillation and dilated cardiomyopathy were studied. The results showed that the implantation of the pacemaker helps to normalize PP in 79 % of patients with the prevalence in class III due to reducing of PP in II, IV and V classes in the VVI, DDD, DDDR pacing mode, and there is no significant effect of it on the migration of patients in PP classes in VVIR and CRT mode. Saving in 21 % of patients II, IV and V class of PP after pacemaker implantation shows the necessity in complement drug therapy.
