    YES. This is because the atrioventricular node will still stimulate the ventricular systole.

    If a patient develops a myocardian infraction that disables the sinoartial node, the heart would still pump blood to the aorta and the pulmonary trunk regardless, because the atrioventricular node will still stimulate the ventricular systole.
