Abstract :

Pacemaker lead displacement or dislodgement is one of uncommon cause of pacemaker malfunction. It occurs due to unintentional or deliberate manipulation of the pacemaker pulse generator in the skin pocket by the patient. This leads to lead coiling, dislodgement and pacemaker failure. Elderly people mostly female, psychiatric patients and large pocket size mostly present with this problem. Mostly occurs in first year of pacemaker implantation. CXR is the diagnostic modality. Pacemaker lead repositioning is the treatment along with proper suture fixation of the lead and pulse generator within its pocket.
