What is 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

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

What is an incomplete bundle branch block?

What is an incomplete bundle branch block?

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 more

What is the prognosis for an incomplete bundle branch block?

BBB: There are two types: right and left (irbbb and ilbbb). The right sided variety is usually benign and has no negative prognosis. The left variety may or may not indicate underlying heart problems. Discuss with your doctor. ...Read more

What's the difference between a complete bundle branch block and an incomplete bundle branch block?

Ecg : Complete bundle branch block has slowing of conduction in that bundle of 0.12 sec or greater, incomplete block is range 0.10--.12sec. This is measured on ecg. ...Read more

Was diagnosed with incomplete bundle branch block,doc is now sending me for blood tests and chest X-ray 
Normal? Worried

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

What does incomplete right bundle branch block indicate?

What does incomplete right bundle branch block indicate?

May be nothing: Incomplete right bundle branch block indicates a slight delay in the electrical conduction in the right bundle. It is often found on a routine ECG and almost always has no clinical consequences. ...Read more

What does it mean to have an incomplete right bundle branch block?

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 more
