Can anyone tell me if there is a code for pacemaker failure? I have looked in the ICD-9 book & can't seem to find one. Thanks in advance for any help.

By pacemaker failure do you mean there was a mechanical complication of the device? If so then try: Complication / mechanical / pacemaker / cardiac 996.01. However, if it's just the end of life of the pacemaker then use V53.31. Hope this helps you.
