Pinski, "Acute Myocardial Infarction and Complete Bundle Branch Block A Hospital Admission: Clinical Characteristics and Outcome in the Thrombolytic Era." (16) AV Blocks and intraventricular blocks in stage 4 are 38.8% and 92% respectively.
AV blocks with EF <45% is 27% and Intraventricular blocks with EF <45% is 36%, but there is no significant relation.
Hence, AV blocks are associated with high mortality compared to intraventricular blocks in view of mortality.
