Bundle Branch Block (Definition)

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

What are treatments for incomplete right bundle branch block?

What are treatments for incomplete right bundle branch block?

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 more

Are there better and newer treatments for atrioventricular node conduction block?

Not really: There are really no medical treatments for av block. Best treatment is to avoid the medications that cause it or make it worse. If the block is severe enough, pacemaker is usually the treatment. ...Read more

Are there any treatments for atrioventricular block?

AV block: Av block occurs in first, second and third degree forms. First is usually benign, second can be serious and might need a pacemaker, third degree almost always needs a pacemaker. ...Read more

What are concerns for pacemaker insertion and bundle branch block rhythm?

What are concerns for pacemaker insertion and bundle branch block rhythm?

Slow heart rate : Lbbb is abnormal when slow heart beats cause syncope and symptomatic bradycardia - rbbb alone doesnot need treatment unles sit causes additional bloks any way need evaluation prior for pm treatment with ep study. ...Read more

Lumbar sympathetic block provided no relief for burning pain, what other interventional treatments are available?

Lumbar sympathetic block provided no relief for burning pain, what other interventional treatments are available?

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

Is there a cure for atrial fibrillation and bundle branch block?

Possibly: Atrial fibrillation can under some circumstances be cured by specialized ablation. Bbb is generally not curable. Talk to a cardiologist. ...Read more

What are causes of right bundle branch block?

Many: It can be congenital. It is often present with right ventricular or right atrial pressure or volume overload such as occurs with atrial or ventricular septal defect. Hypertension causes many cases. Pulmonary artery hypertension, as occurs in advanced lung disease or pulmonary embolism, can cause it. Finally, it's present in many healthy people for no reason at all. ...Read more

What are some of the treatments available for coronary artery blockage?

What are some of the treatments available for coronary artery blockage?

Treatment of CAD: Treatment falls into 3 categories. Medical therapy, angioplasty, and coronary bypass surgery. Medical therapy with Aspirin and cholesterol-lowering medications along with other medications usually forms the basis of treatment with angioplasty (stents) and bypass surgery reserved for those patients who do not respond fully to medical therapy. ...Read more

What are the treatments for asystole?

ACLS: The advanced cardiac life support algorithm recommends chest compression, starting and IV and giving Atropine and Epinephrine and checking a rhythm on a defibrillator/aed (but you wouldn't shock this rhythm if it persisted). That's it - the person responding should also consider treating things that can be reversed.. Like acidosis or hypovolemia etc. Etc. ...Read more

What are the treatments for Arrhythmia?

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. Some arrhythmias can increase the risk of stroke and require anti-coagulant medications. ...Read more

What are the treatments for fibers in heart valve called?

What are the treatments for fibers in heart valve called?

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 more

What are treatments for anteroseptal ischemia?

What are treatments for anteroseptal ischemia?

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 more
