What Is The Medical Prognosis For A Bundle Branch Block
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
Wiring: The heart is a muscle but how fast it beats is controlled by special cells, sort of like electric wiring. The main wire divides into two, one to the right and one to the left. If part of that wiring becomes abnormal you get a right or left bundle branch block. It results in a typical pattern on the ekg. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Wiring of heart: Sinus rhythm means that the electrical activity that controls the contraction of the heart, starts in the sinus node. Right bundle branch block means that the right bundle (part of the electrical wiring) does not conduct the impulse which changes the appearance of the ekg. Right bundle branch block as opposed to left bundle branch block is usually benign. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Abnormal conduction: The signal to beat is distributed to through the heart by a specialized electrical system. The right bundle is one of the branches of this system. If conduction through the right bundle is slowed or blocked the parts of the heart it serves will contract late, seen as widening of the electrocardiographic qrs-wave. Unless the remainder of the conduction system fails, it usually isn't a problem. ...Read more
Electrical slowing: The conduction of electricity in the lower chambers of the heart occurs through the left and right bundles. An incomplete right bundle branch block is an insignificant finding, representing a slight slowing in the electrical conduction as it passes through the right side of the heart. Please be aware that this has nothing to do with blockages in the arteries or heart attacks. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
No: Generally RBBB is not serious - it can even be present from birth. With your hx of SVT, there are certain abnormalities that need to be considered and excluded: atrial septal defect and mitral stenosis. Lung conditions can cause it. Sometime high blood pressure is the cause. There are rare causes too, but in most cases, it's an isolated finding of no significance. In itself RBBB causes no symptoms ...Read more
Left bundle branch: I presume you refer to a left bundle branch block found on an ECG . This is a slowing in electrical current flow through the left side of the heart. You could possibly also be referring to a block in a branch of the left coronary artery. I cannot tell from your wording which type ...Read more
Placebo, 10 mg: Incomplete rbbb is, in the majority of patients, normal variant caused by simple delay of the right bundle conduction relative to the left bundle's conduction. It is benign (safe), and no specific treatment is recommended or required. Certain other conditions can cause a right bundle branch block, but the treatment is generally focused on those conditions, and not the bundle block. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
