Figure 1 : 

Method for calculation of direct three-dimensional interlead distance (D0), using the Pythagorean theorem, on two chest radiographs with orthogonal projections. AP: anterior-posterior; D: direct interlead distance (ILD); H: horizontal ILD; L: lateral; V: verticaI ILD.

Figure 2 : 

Direct three-dimensional interlead distance (D0) according to the type of lead (bipolar or quadripolar) and the different left ventricular lead electrodes, in the initial cohort (n =42).

Figure 3

Figure 3 : 

Direct three-dimensional interlead distance (D0) according to the final position of the left ventricular lead in the left anterior oblique and right anterior oblique projections, in the initial cohort (n =42). A: apical; AL: anterior-lateral; B: basal; IL: inferior-lateral; L: lateral; M: median.

Comparison of long-term survival (median follow-up, 420 days) from heart failure hospitalization using Kaplan-Meier analyses, in the merged cohort (n =74), between patients with a direct three-dimensional interlead distance/cardiac silhouette maximum width measured on anterior-posterior X-ray (D0/C) ratio ≥ 0.53 (n =52, 70%) and<0.53 (non-adjusted hazard ratio [HR]).
