In brief: There are many
Early: bleeding into the pacemaker pocket / infection, lead dislodgment, perforation, arrhythmias.
Late: infection, arrhythmias, pacemaker malfunction anytime: pacemaker syndrome (also known as av dyssynchrony syndrome) symptoms may not improve if the indication for pacemaker insertion were soft or not really present. This is not uncommon.
