Causes Of Bifascicular Block
See below: There are 3 fascicles or pathways for cardiac conduction in the heart: the right bundle branch, and the left bundle branch which is subdivided into anterior and posterior fascicles. When 2 of the 3 don't function, it is easily detected on ekg. This causes no symptoms and requires no treatment. Nonetheless it is abnormal and should prompt an evaluation of your general heart health. ...Read more
An ECGinterprets RIGHT BUNDLE BRANCH BLOCK, LEFT POSTERIOR FASCICULAR BLOCK, BIFASCICULAR BLOCK. I dont' feel any dizziness. Is it normal? Cure for it?
Not normal: Those findings on EKG are not normal, and are permanent. They can be caused by defects in the conduction system of the heart that you have had since birth, by previous heart attacks, or remodeling of the heart in response to ongoing hypertension. You should consult with a cardiologist for further evaluation. ...Read more
Hi docs. My ECG reports RBBB, left posterior fascicular block and bifascicular block. Is angiography needed? Is angiography can cure it? No dizziness.
My ECG reports right bundle branch block, left posterior fascicular block and bifascicular block. May I use oats, protein food, milk and dairy products?
Rare: Though the esi injections are quite safe in the general parlance, yet there always remain some adverse reactions of epidural steroid injections. Temporary pain may be felt by a patient administered with an esi injection. There may be risks of spinal punctures, infections, bleeding inside epidural area with damage to nerves, headaches, & retention of water in the body. ...Read more
Sialolithiasis: The stones form from calcium and phosphate crystals often from dehydration, certain medications and sjogren's syndrome and may be pushed or encouraged out of the duct if it is small enough by firm massage or probing while larger stones may require a small incision sometimes the gland and the stone may have to be completely excised. ...Read more
What is the likely cause for the NSLBP? And considering Wenden with drugs he is in 9/10 pain would nerve blocks or other procedures be helpful?
What causes memory blocks to where a person can only remember certain things but not other things? I have this friend who I've known for about 20 years telling me things we did to gether some years ago and I don't seem to remember any of this, he even tol
Our: Our ability to remember things and events depends a lot on the state of mind we are in while we are doing things. This is called state dependent learning. If we are distracted or under the influence of drugs or medication, we may not store or be able to retrieve memories well or at all. If your friend is telling you about things you did together and you do not recall these things, they may have meant more to him. We filter out things that we don't consider important. If you are having personal problems they will affect your ability to recall less pressing ideas. I don't think there is anything seriously wrong with you. ...Read more
Atherosclerosis: In western civilization, atherosclerosis is the most common reason for a blocked artery. No one knows the exact cause or process, but there are known risk factors: smoking, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, diabetes, and a family history of heart attacks or strokes. Reducing or modifying risk factors has been shown to lower the risk from blocked arteries. ...Read more
Eustacian Tube: You may have some form of eustacian tube dysfuction which drains the ear into the nose. Allergy, infection and other causes may result in blockage of the drainage system and fluid pressure is noted with a painful ear. ...Read more
Nope: However, sun block is very helpful in reducing the effect of uv radiation on developing lethal skin cancers such as melanoma. Avoid excess sun exposure and avoid sunburns, but when out and about always take the added measure of using and re-applying sunblock to avoid toxic damage from the sun. ...Read more
Blocked sinuses: There may be anatomic airway/nasal deformity, like a deviated nasal septum, overgrown bone (turbinates), or bone at the holes that aerate sinuses. The mucous membranes may swell and block the natural air holes into the sinuses, along with mucous or bacterial exudate (pus). Finally, there are some soft tissue masses (tumors) that can also block these holes. Smoking also aggravates tissues. ...Read more
Rsd flare ups: Any injection or irritation to the nerve can cause a flare up, however, the pain physician usually injects steroids at the site which supposed to decrease inflammation at the site to prevent a flare up & increase the threshold for rsd conductance. I would speak to the physician that injected you and look at the paper work that they gave to you after the procedure. ...Read more
Stone and blockage: Fecoliths are calcified fecal material in appendix. Sometimes it obstructs the appendix causing appendicitis.Imaging with ct and ultrasound now detects smaller appendicoliths that are not obstructing in people without appendicitis. Usually size of lith in association with obstruction, inflammation and infection. ...Read more
What caused it?: These fascicals are the prefered conduction path of the heart beat through the left ventrical, the main pumping chamber of the heart. A block in the fascical is generally caused by a blockage in a heart artery and often that blockage is more important than the fascical. If more fascicals are blocked, you are at risk of needing a pacemaker. Primary cardiomyopathies can cause these problems too. ...Read more
Depends, of course: Most cases of bundle branch block are due to a focal injury to a key part of the heart's electrical conduction system. Coronary disease, scarring from trauma, infection, or natural processes can cause it. Some illicit drugs, especially those creating coronary spasm (e.g., cocaine, amphetamines) may create those conditions, and frequent exposure (repetitive) only exacerbates the risk. ...Read more
Can cause serious damage by picking your noset till it bleeds. I used to drugs 15 yrs ago but as it heals it blocks my nasal passagrs do I pick it.
Hi I was wondering if a gangilon nerve block could cause disk problems as I had nine done in 2003 and then had disk problems at c6.And had disk replac?
Allergies: Take a non-sedating antihistamine like loratidine or cetrizine. If nasal steroid spray is available in your country, use that also. You may also try saline nasal irrigations like NetiPot. If these measures do not help you may need to be seen by primary care for further evaluation. Thanks for trusting HealthTap! ...Read more
Incomplete RBBB: This is a relatively innocuous condition where the electrical conduction in the right ventricle is not completely normal. It is believed to be due to an abnormality in the electrical conduction fibers. It is not typically associated with any clinically significant cardiac problem. The vast majority of persons with this do absolutely fine and live normal lives. ...Read more
Various causes: Left bundle branch block is a pattern seen on an EKG indicating an abnormal or different pathway of the electrical signal that causes the heart muscle to contract. It is most often due to an underlying medical condition such as hypertension, a heart attack, an enlarged heart from any cause and only when serious conditions are excluded is it felt due to the benign aging of the conduction pathway. ...Read more
Many: It can be congenital. It is often present with right ventricular or right atrial pressure or volume overload such as occurs with atrial or ventricular septal defect. Hypertension causes many cases. Pulmonary artery hypertension, as occurs in advanced lung disease or pulmonary embolism, can cause it. Finally, it's present in many healthy people for no reason at all. ...Read more
Not well developed: Blocked tear duct is quite common in newborn babies, mostly because the duct is still quite small and well-formed yet. Usually after 6 montns or so as the duct enlarge and mature (more well-formed, it drains better and the blockage is resolved. Often, no treatment is needed. Some persistent cases may need a bit of probing to open it up. Hope this makes sense to you. Good luck. ...Read more
Depends: Certain drugs and venoms cause reversible or irreversible blockade of acetylcholine receptors. Some cause rapid heart rate. If you're receiving such a drug, it's under the supervision of a physician, so put your trust in that person. Whether the increased heart rate is injurious depends on the specifics of your health history and condition. ...Read more

Fluids and sours: Similar to kidney stones you want to increase hydration to help flush, thin secretions. You also want to increase excretion (output). This is done by stimulating saliva production. Sucking on lemons, or sour candy. Warm compresses and milking may also be recommended in addition to the above. See your local ENT specialist. ...Read more
