Bundle Branch Block (Definition)

There are 2 main branches of the heart's electrical system within the ventricles, the right bundle branch and the left bundle branch. Additionally, the left bundle branch has two sub-branches, the antero-superior fascicle and the posteroinferior fascicle. When one or more branches are disrupted, the resultant electrical abnormalities can be ...Read more

Can you treat right bundle branch block?

Not necessary: Isolated rbbb does not require treatment. Sometimes, bbbs are a market for other problems: cardiomyopathy, endocarditis, lyme disease. In that case the underlying cause should be treated. ...Read more

Can bundle branch block be fatal?

Can bundle branch block be fatal?

Not usually: Right bundle branch block is pretty benign. Most cases of left bundle branch block are associated with significant heart disease. It is the severity of that heart disease and the type of disease which could lead to a fatal outcome. The bundle branch block itself is not likely to be fatal. If it progressed to complete heart block, then a pacemaker would be needed and conceivably it could be fatal. ...Read more

Can chemotherapy cause left bundle branch block?

Sometimes: A left bundle branch block is a finding on an EKG ( the electrical tracing of your heart.) it shows that something has altered the way your heart conducts electrical impulses. Chemotherapy can do it, but so can heart disease. Your doctor should rule out other causes for a left bundle branch block before assuming chemotherapy is the cause. ...Read more

Can i overcome the incomoplete right bundle branch block?

No need: You don't need to and cannot reverse rbbb (incomplete or complete). Many normal people are born with it. It causes no symptoms and is not indicative of disease. There is no treatment indicated or necessary. ...Read more

Help please! could bundle branch block be fatal in women?

Help please! could bundle branch block be fatal in women?

Bundle branch block: Bundle branch block is an anatomic or physiologic problem in conducting electrical impulses in part of the hearts conduction system. If the impulse is blocked in the left bundle one ECG appearance is present, a different one for right bundle branch block. These can be of minor or major significance depending on the patient's own situation. In and of themselves bundle branch blocks are not fatal. ...Read more

Can you explain incomplete right bundle branch block?

Can you explain incomplete right bundle branch block?

Mild condabrupt prob: The righty and left ventricles are induced to beat through electrochemical currents transmitted through the right and left bundle branches, respectively. Irbbb means part of the right bundle is not transmitting fully. It is a benign condition of no significant clinical consequence. ...Read more

I have an incomplete right bundle branch block is it dangerous nd can cause a cardiac arrest?

I have an incomplete right bundle branch block is it dangerous nd can cause a cardiac arrest?

Irbbb usually safe: Irbbb is usually an ECG anomaly that may speak of some right sided enlargement or strain (can occur in atrial septal defect or in pulmonary processes with right heart strain ). It can also occur innocuously and unrelated to cardiac structural changes. It does not typically imply impending conduction system collapse and is not a predictor for cardiac arrest or sudden cardiac death. ...Read more

Can someone with a history of bundle branch block convert back to sinus rhythm?

Not a rhythm problem: Bundle branch block is an anatomic or physiologic problem in conducting electrical impulses in part of the hearts conduction system. It is not a rhythm disturbance though it can be related to rhythm disturbances. Bundle branch blocks commonly exist with normal sinus rhythm. ...Read more

Can you drink alcohol with left bundle branch block?

Can you drink alcohol with left bundle branch block?

Depends: Depends on what caused the lbbb (congenital or after a heart attack), and how much you are drinking. Alcohol in low doses (1-2 drinks/day in men, 1 drink/day in women and older men) is often considered a tonic for the heart and raises "good cholesterol." in higher doses, it can damage the heart, raise blood pressure and cause heart rhythm problems. Talk to your internist or cardiologist about it. ...Read more

Please can you explain what atrial flutter with variable av block compatible with a bundle branch block. Possible inferior infarction, probably old is?

ECG interpretation.: Atrial flutter: your heart rhythm is abnormal (the atria are contracting very rapidly); variable block: there are a variable number of atrial contractions for every ventricular contraction. A bundle branch block: the ECG complex representing each ventricular contraction is widened due to a block of one branch of your heart's conduction system. Q waves on the ECG suggest an infarct (? Age). ...Read more

I have been diagnosed with a right bundle branch block of the heart. Can I reverse this?

I have been diagnosed with a right bundle branch block of the heart. Can I reverse this?

Probably not: A right bundle branch block is either slowed or blocked conduction in one of the three fascicles ("wires") that connect the top chambers to the bottom chambers of the heart. Generally speaking, if the right bundle block has been there a while, it'll stay. Sometimes they come and go, but that's like an extension cord on the fritz and sparking. Good news: you'll be fine with just the left bundle. ...Read more
