The results obtained for a group of patients from the database of the Moscow Municipal Center for electrocar-dioctimulation were processed. The dates of primary implantation and reimplantation of pacemakers were taken into account. A total of 330 pacemakers were replaced because of battery discharge. Mean, estimated, warranty, and gamma-percentage service life of two domestic models and one foreign model of pacemakers were calculated. It was found that the estimated service life of domestic models of pacemakers did not coincide with actual service life.
