Enlarged heart. X-ray of the chest of a patient with an enlarged heart and a pacemaker (top right). Cardiac diseases can make the heart need to pump harder. As it is a muscle, the heart grows if it has an increased workload. The pacemaker supplies electrical impulses, along a lead, to the heart to keep it beating regularly.
