Left anterior fascicular block what it causes?

Left anterior fascicular block what it causes?

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

Is left bundle branch block reversible?

Is left bundle branch block reversible?

Yes: It is sometimes seen intermittently. It can be present on an EKG and not on one done at a later date. At times it occurs when the heart is beating fast but not with slower heart rates. ...Read more

Why are left bundle branch blocks worse than right bundle branch blocks?

Why are left bundle branch blocks worse than right bundle branch blocks?

The cause important: The right bundle is relatively easy to damage, so relatively small injuries can create it. The left bundles (two of them, one easy to injure, one hard to damage) require more damage to interfere with their function, so they are associated with "worse" heart disease with the prognosis inherent in your question. Cause is important, so need to talk to your doctors to sort those out. ...Read more

Left fascicular block treatment and cause?

1 doctor agreed:
Left fascicular block treatment and cause?

No treatment: Left fascicular block is due to slow conduction in one of the two branches of the left bundle . There is the anterior fascicle and the posterior fascicle . The causes of fascicular block is varied from idiopathic or unknown to different diseases of the heart .By in itself it does not cause any problem but a mere indication of abnormality in the electrical conduction ...Read more

What does sr. Left anterior fascicular block mean?

What does sr. Left anterior fascicular block mean?

Conduction system pr: Part of the conduction system of the heart doesn't work. If more fascicles are blocked, you are at risk of needing a pacemaker. More important is the cause. Is there a blocked artery or weak heart muscle (aka cardiomyopathy?) generally these won't be a problem as long as you know why you have it. You should see a doctor. ...Read more

Is left bundle branch block life shortening?

Is left bundle branch block life shortening?

Possibly: As most people with lbbb have heart muscle abnormalities, yes. But about 15% of people with left bundle branch block have structurally normal hearts, so the answer is maybe or sometimes. ...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?

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

What is left atrial abnormality incomplete right bundle block?

What is left atrial abnormality incomplete right bundle block?

Ecg : What you list are electrocardiographic patterns. Left atrial abnormality suggests the possibility of structural abnormalities of the left atrium. Incomplete right bundle branch block suggests slowing of electrical impulse conduction in the right bundle branch of the conduction system. These findings can be associated with abnormal structure and function but are not diagnostic any specific problem. ...Read more

What are differences between left bundle branch block and right bundle branch block?

The location: Obviously the location of the electrical block in the conduction of electric impulses from the atrium to the ventricles is different. The electrical signals travel to the two ventricles through the left and the right bundle, the left then bifurcates to two fascicles itself. In my experience, the non-pathologic presence of right bundle branch block is more common. ...Read more

Can lafb (left anterior fasicular block) be caused by an enlarge left ventricle?

Can lafb (left anterior fasicular block) be caused by an enlarge left ventricle?

Certainly: Associated but the better question to ask unless you know is why do you have an enlarged left ventricle. Hope you have seen or are planning to see your cardiologist. ...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

Is right bundle branch block serious?

Depends: Right bundle branch block (rbbb) in and of itself is likely not a detrimental issue, however if it happens in the setting of a heart attack, it portends a poor prognosis. ...Read more

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
