Overview

In general treatment for right bundle branch block is not necessary. These patients need not limit their activity. However, if the RBBB progresses to heart block, the patient may be at risk for adverse clinical outcomes. In these patients further electrophysiologic testing may be necessary. Those patients who develop right bundle branch block after surgery should undergo EKG testing each year to evaluate for interval changes. In particular, care should be taken to observe for the development of sinus bradycardia supraventricular or ventricular ectopy.
