Heartblock

Posted By Ken on April 04, 1998 at 20:22:19:







Please help me understand meaning of my diagnosis with left fasicular
hemiblock.  (Physican also called it left bundle block).   I had "abnormal"
stress test 3 years ago.  Normal rhythm took one hour to return after test.
Physican suspected infarction and immediately conducted angiogram, which was
normal.  Recently had another ekg, in which physican said electical pattern
was continually blocked.  He said this is probably ok, and such conversion
usually happend. But wants to conduct a different thallium stress test, just
to be safe.  I'm 53.  Brother (58) had bypass surgery last year.  
He is diabetic. I do not (but most in my family do) and have heart disease.
Thank you for helping me understand the meaning of this heart block.
