The children's intelligence was within normal ranges, average IQ being 110 (range 80-135). The children had abnormal body image related to the pacemaker. Adults virtually incorporate the pacemaker in their body image without disturbance, but children who are forming their body image and identity, are influenced by having a pacemaker. This may give psychosocial implication.",
