Overview

Right bundle branch block can result from various causes which include: cardiovascular (e.g. Atrial septal defect, cardiomyopathy, coronary artery disease, Ebstein anomaly); iatrogenic (e.g. Cardiac catheterization, cardiac transplantation, post cardiac surgery); infectious (e.g. Chagas disease, HIV, infective endocarditis, Lyme disease); pulmonary (e.g. COPD, cor pulmonale , pulmonary embolism, pulmonary hypertension), and many other disease conditions.

Causes

Life Threatening Causes

Life-threatening causes include conditions which may result in death or permanent disability within 24 hours if left untreated.
