BACKGROUND Right ventricular (RV) apical pacing deteriorates left ventricular (LV) function. RV nonoutflow (low) septal pacing may better preserve ventricular performance, but this has not been systematically tested. Our aim was to assess (1) whether long-term RV lower septal pacing is superior to RV apical pacing regarding LV volumes and ejection fraction (EF), and (2) if the changes in LV dyssynchrony imposed by pacing are related to the long-term changes in LV volumes and EF.
