Caption: Inverted heart and pacemaker. Frontal chest X-ray of a 68-year-old man with an inversion of the heart (situs inversus) who has been fitted with a pacemaker (white, upper right). Situs inversus is a congenital condition where the position of the internal organs are reversed left-to-right. The heart is on the right-hand side of the chest (on the left of the image), instead of the left-hand side. The liver (also transposed) is at lower right. Some people with this condition also have congenital heart defects. The pacemaker is designed to maintain the normal rhythm of the heart by delivering electrical impulses through the wires (white) running from the pacemaker to the heart.
