Starting from the nuclear shell structure in medium-heavy and heavy nuclei, the excitation energy for low-lying 0+ intruder states is studied. Taking as a simplified model two particle-two hole (2p-2h) excitations across closed shells, the effects of the pairing and the proton-neutron (monopole and quadrupole component) residual interaction on the unperturbed energies are calculated. Application to major closed-shell (fZ = 50, Z = 82) and to subshell (Z = 40, Z = 64) regions is performed. We especially concentrate on 0+ intruder states in the even-even Pb nuclei.
