In brief: Low

If there are no other medical conditions, the risk of dying from a pacemaker replacement is very low, below 1%.

In brief: Ridiculously Low

Really really really low.
< 1:2000 if you don't have particularly severe heart failure or some much more rare condition which sets you up for major complications.
