What is the likelihood of clinically significant heart disease in adults with asymptomatic left bundle branch block?
Metadata[+] Show full item record
Somewhere between 9% and 24% of adults with asymptomatic left bundle branch block (LBBB) have significant coronary artery disease (CAD) on angiography. Asymptomatic middle-aged adults followed for 10 to 28 years with LBBB have increased cardiovascular mortality and risk of developing high-grade atrioventricular block. (SOR B, based on cohort studies.)
