What Treatments Are Available For 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
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

Dual non-traditional: Burning=virtually always neurologic origin.Contrary to typical approach like blocks of spinal nerves, new & 150 yr old evidence shows most such pain is due to peripheral nerves, not central.Osteopathic history & exam may give info about structural causes (ex. pinching of nerves) & manipulation may correct.Additionally, neuroprolotherapy (relatively new procedure)-very effective for this pain type. ...Read more

Many: Depending on the type of arrhythmia, the treatments may range from simple monitoring all the way to antiarrhythmic medications or even invasive procedures to ablate abnormal electrical components in the heart.

Chordau tendiniae: The "fibers" are called "chordae" and are similar in function to parachute chords. They prevent the valve leaflets to prolapse (tricuspid and mitral), holding them back just like a parachute chord prevents the parachute from flipping up. If these chords break, the valve will leak. Surgical fixes include annuloplasty (narrowing the valve ring), repairing the chordae, and valve replacement. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Several: This just refers to the location in the heart of a lack of blood supply. The possible treatments are medication, angioplasty with stent, or surgery (bypass operation) if there is a blockage. If the reason for the problem is something other than a blockage, such as anemia or lung disease resulting in a low oxygen, then the treatment would be directed at correcting the primary problem. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
