Pulmonary artery migration of pacemaker electrode is rare. We report a 67-year-old-female patient with retained functionless permanent pacemaker electrode migrated to the main pulmonary artery eleven months after a new pacemaker and lead replacement. She presented with anterior chest pain, and the migrated electrode was detected by chest X-ray. The electrode was removed by surgery without any complication.
