A displacement is a mechanical complication - look at 996.1 since the permacath is a vascular catheter placed for hemodialysis.

If the encounter involved the replacement also use V56.1 and any associated condition.

996.7x is used for complications involving a clot, bleed, stenosis, pain... A complication of a urinary catheter (Foley catheter) or other GU device is assigned 996.76.
