Please inform me, is the dual chamber pacemaker is contraindication with atrial fibrilation? What the best pacemaker for AF people? Better ICD or PPM?

In brief: Depends on AF??

Ask your doctor what kind of atrial fibrillation you have.
If dealing with paroxysmal atrial fib. and your doctor recommended pacemaker then dual chamber pacemaker is better suitable for you. If dealing with persistent or chronic AF and you have indication for pacemaker then single chamber pacemaker. Also discuss the current medication regimen with your doctor as some medication can affect rhythm
