What are the benefits and risks of a pacemaker for someone older than 90?

In any procedure the risks and benefits need to be considered. If there are significant risks of falls or of injury to yourself that would be fixed by a pacemaker then it may be worth the risk of it. However, the risk of surgery at 90+ years of age is also significant. I would discuss this with your family as well as your physician.
