Incomplete Bundle Branch Block
Mild conduction 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
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
Not true "block": Two bundles of electrical tissue carry each heartbeat from the top part of the heart to the bottom--the "right" and "left" bundle branches. When one of these doesn't conduct at all, or does so much more slowly than the other, it is a complete bundle branch block. When one conducts slightly slower than the other, it is called "incomplete" bundle block. This often is of no clinical consequence. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
QRS Width: The short answer is that if the qrs is less than 120ms, it's incomplete. ...Read more
What's the difference between a complete bundle branch block and an incomplete bundle branch block?
Was diagnosed with incomplete bundle branch block,doc is now sending me for blood tests and chest X-ray
Were you having: symptoms of some kind? Right or left bundle branch block is common occurring in about 0.5% and 3% respectively in the population. Incomplete bundle branch block is rarely associated with any significant cardiac abnormality and is extremely common (about 4%.) In the absence of symptoms no workup is indicated. I can't imagine what blood tests or Xray would show. Don't worry. ...Read more

Not much: It is a benign EKG finding related to a slight delay in the conduction system (like electrical wiring) of the heart. It is more common in those with an atrial septal defect (hole between left and right heart) but in general is benign, nothing to worry about. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
