Abstract

Persistent left superior vena cava can create technical challenges during implantation of pacing devices; which, in the majority of cases, are implanted on the left side. We present a chest x-ray of a patient with a left-sided biventricular implantable cardioverter defibrillator placement through a persistent left SVC.
