What Is The Prognosis For An Incomplete 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
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
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
What's the difference between a complete bundle branch block and an incomplete bundle branch block?
What is the difference between complete right bundle branch block and incomplete right bundle branch block?
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
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
Incomplete RBBB: This is a relatively innocuous condition where the electrical conduction in the right ventricle is not completely normal. It is believed to be due to an abnormality in the electrical conduction fibers. It is not typically associated with any clinically significant cardiac problem. The vast majority of persons with this do absolutely fine and live normal lives. ...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
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
