AbstractA pacemaker for providing electrical pulses for a heart has an anatomically-shaped housing. The housing has a concave inner wall and a convex outer wall, which are spaced apart and joined at the periphery. The periphery is elliptical and rounded. The electronics locate within a cavity between the inner and outer walls. An electrical wire extends upward directly above a center of gravity of the housing for connection to the heart. An aperture is located above the center of gravity for suturing to tissue of the patient.
