Cardiac output was measured in 89 patients using transthoracic continuous-wave echo Doppler comparing right ventricular outflow tract pacing with the right ventricular apex at the time of permanent pacemaker implantation. Overall, cardiac output improved 18.8% (p <0.0001) and cardiac index 21.0% (p <0.0001) with outflow tract placement; patients with a lower baseline cardiac index had a greater percent improvement with outflow tract placement.
