I have been diagnosed with RBBB and Left Anterior Fascicular Block. Did 48-hour Holter and Cardio recommends pacemaker. I rarely have symptoms.

More info needed: One does not need a pacemaker for rbbb and lafb, therefore, you need to ask cardiologist what is the indication for a pacemaker and if the answer doesn't satisfy you- seek a second opinion and obtain copy of the 48 hr. Holter to bring to that appt. ...Read more

EKG finding of LEFT ANTERIOR FASCICULAR BLOCK. I was told that I may have had a minor heart attack although I had no symptoms. I am very worried.

EKG finding of LEFT ANTERIOR FASCICULAR BLOCK. I was told that I may have had a minor heart attack although I had no symptoms. I am very worried.

See a Cardiologist: You probably already are going to go and see one, if not, you should. A left anterior fascicular block sounds worse than it is, so do not worry too much. You are probably already taking an Aspirin a day, if not you should. Would probably not start any exercise programs until after you have seen a cardiologist. Other side of the coin, you may not have had a heart attack. Be safe-see cardiology. ...Read more

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

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

My ECG shows "Left Anterior Fascicular blocK' and also indicated :cannot rule out Inferior infarct. What it means and is it dangerous? What caused it.

My ECG shows "Left Anterior Fascicular blocK' and also indicated :cannot rule out Inferior infarct. What it means and is it dangerous? What caused it.

See below: LAFB is a delay in cardiac conduction in the range of 20 milliseconds (+/- 10 ms) with a shift in the axis to the left. It causes no symptoms and is not dangerous. Most common causes are normal aging, high blood pressure, and coronary disease. "Cannot rule out inferior infarct" is a frequent finding that has meaning only if you are known to have blocked arteries. There is no room here 4 details. ...Read more

My husband just had an ECG done and it came out as Sinus Bradycardia (which isn't a big deal) but also has Incomplete right bundle branch block and left anterior fascicular block. We called and got a referral to a cardiologist (next 7 days). I'm just wo

My husband just had an ECG done and it came out as Sinus Bradycardia (which isn't a big deal) but also has Incomplete right bundle branch block and left anterior fascicular block. We called and got a referral to a cardiologist (next 7 days). I'm just wo

Worried: You got an ecg as did your husband. You are worried. You have incomplete right bunble block and left ant fascilular block. Over all the cardiologist will look for prolonged qt and a detailed history of any family history. When you see your cardiologist answer all the questions and have a good family history. Tell any medications or holistic medications also. Hope this helps. ...Read more

Can extreme dizziness be caused by left anterior faschicular block-forgive the spelling or can it be caused by crestor, (rosuvastatin) or norvasc? Thank you joey

Can extreme dizziness be caused by left anterior faschicular block-forgive the spelling or can it be caused by crestor, (rosuvastatin) or norvasc? Thank you joey

NO: Lafb causes no symptoms: it is simply a finding on ekg. It requires no treatment. Crestor (rosuvastatin) does not cause dizziness either. Norvasc lowers BP and potentially could cause dizziness, especially with standing quickly. However, there are many causes of dizziness in an 82 year old ranging from benign positional vertigo to stroke, so a complete exam is indicated. ...Read more

I had my ECG done and twice 2 diff machine printed out saying tachycardia and left anterior fascicular blk. Dr says graph is fine. Shld I worry?

I had my ECG done and twice 2 diff machine printed out saying tachycardia and left anterior fascicular blk. Dr says graph is fine. Shld I worry?

Talk to your doc....: You may have tachycardia because you were perhaps anxious during ekg. Check your pulse at rest randomly. If you average over 90 or 100 at rest ask yourself why (poor shape physically, generally anxious, anemia, overactive thyroid, uncontrolled diabetes or other illness). Lafb means partially slow conduction of electrical impulse on the left side. If you feel well otherwise no worries. ...Read more

What to do if I have left anterior hemifascicular block according to my ecg.?

LAHB: Left anterior hemiblock is slowed or blocked conduction in a branch of the left bundle of conduction fibers in the left ventricle. In some people it progresses to more block in many it doesn't. We generally follow these patients with yearly or other ecgs to see if any progression is taking place. Discuss with your Dr. ...Read more

Ekg last yr & have left anterior block. This year 2nd EKG showed the left anterior block & right. Did echocardiogram, Nuclear stress test. Any idea?

EKG changes are: Electrical changes. The echocardiogram and stress test are arterial tests. You did not mention your age or if you had an MI or arterial disease. The electrical changes may occur without arterial disease or they may be related. See your doctor and it is important to know if your doctor thinks at some point you may need a pacer.
SEe a cardiologist for complete information. ...Read more

What is a left fascicular block in your heart?

What is a left fascicular block in your heart?

Left fascicular bloc: The hearts conduction system has a right bundle and a left bundle. The left 'bundle' has both anterior and posterior fascicles. When one or the other fascicles has conduction block, we call this fascicular block. The left anterior is the most common. This explanation is a bit of an oversimplification to fascilitate understanding. ...Read more

What is meant by left anterior hemiblock?

ECG abnormality: Lafb means that there is slowed conduction down one of the two fascicles that conducts electricity to the left ventricle of the heart. These 2 fascicles make up the left bundle. Another fascicle goes to the right ventricle (right bundle). Lafb can occur innocently or it can occur as a result of injury to the part of the intraventricular septum where it resides. ...Read more

Left fascicular block treatment and cause?

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

Please tell me, could a left anterior hemiblock cause palpitations?

Please tell me, could a left anterior hemiblock cause palpitations?

No: Left anterior hemiblock is an ekg finding that indicates an electrical abnormality of the anterior portion of the left bundle branch. The left bundle branch is specialized nerve tissue that allows the cardiac electrical impulse to travel through the left ventricle causing muscular contraction of the heart. Left anterior hemiblock is common but does not cause palpitations. Another cause is likely. ...Read more

My cardiologist says I have an innocent left anterior hemiblock. How can left anterior hemiblock be innocent?

It is possible: Assuming you don't have any of the obvious conditions associated with lafb (htn, coronary heart disease, valve disease) then it is possible that you have acquired some calcification or scarring that has affected this part of the electrical system. While lafb is never normal it may not be something that will affect you in any clinically meaningful way. ...Read more
