There are several types of left bundle branch block, each producing its own characteristic mechanism of failure. In each case, the nerve impulse is blocked or delayed. Patients with LBBB may have left ventricular disease or cardiomyopathy.

What causes right bundle branch block?

Is right bundle branch block reversible?

It depends on what has caused the bundle branch block. Some healthy people will exhibit a bundle branch block (usually right sided) when their heart beats very fast. This is caused by a rate related delay in the bundle branch on that side, wherein the cells of the conduction system do not repolarize fast enough to propagate the electrical activity. If the block is caused by damage to the conduction tissue, then the bundle branch block will most likely be permanent.
