right ventricular pacing site


  • 76-year-old man
  • syncope, complete atrio-ventricular block, atrial fibrillation
  • single-chamber pacemaker
  • chest X-ray 1 day after implantation

Chest X-ray: antero-posterior view

  • right ventricular placed via the left cephalic vein
  • the RV lead is directed inferiorly through the right atrium and the tricuspid valve with the tip at the right ventricular apex


Chest X-ray: lateral view (same patient)

  • the tip of the right ventricular lead is antero-apical


Now look at the chest X-rays of two other patients with a dual chamber pacemaker.
