Hi Kitt,

Ouch, after spending some time researching and compiling a post for the aforementioned, I see it was locked (removed) by the Administrator. What happened? Last I saw it was a question on PFO and IBBB.

Thanks.

What I learned:

PFO:

www.mayoclinic.org/diseases-conditions/patent-foramen-ovale/basics/definition/con-20028729

From what I can see, about 25% the population has this condition to some degree.

"The foramen ovale is a small hole located in the atrial septum that is used during fetal circulation to speed up the travel of blood through the heart. When in the womb,a baby does not use it's own lungs for oxygen-rich blood, it relies on the mother to provide oxygen rich blood from the placenta through the umbilical cord to the fetus. Therefore, blood can travel from the veins to the right side of the baby's heart and cross to the left side of the heart through the foramen ovale and skip the trip to the baby's lungs."

Anti-coagulants may be necessary to prevent clots from occurring, which seems to be a possibility in some with this condition.

IRBBB:

This community-based study shows that the prevalence of IRBBB and RBBB is two to three times higher in men than in women...... IRBBB by itself is not associated with any clinically relevant adverse outcome. Our results indicate that the finding of an RBBB—unlike IRBBB—in the ECG of a person without known cardiac disease should alert physicians to more careful patient evaluation and follow-up.

In English, Incomplete Right Bundle Branch Block is not associated with bad outcomes.


Anyone with either or both condition should follow up with their doctor, having both is more complicated than one, even more incentive to keep periodic visits with the doctor. Ask him/her about anti-coagulants, diet, weight, exercise, etc. For me, having these conditions would be an incentive to keep weight down as I age and to be careful with dietary fats and cholesterol as instructed by my doctor.

JR,
 
I am sorry I do not have an answer for you as I do not know.  I was away from 7/3 - 7/6 and had company that stayed here on the week-end when I got home.
 
I had asked you and any free moderators to check in on the forum so I am not sure if another Mod saw something that was against the rules?
 
I am glad you posted your information and again, thank you, for your help and wisdom.
 
Kindly,
Kitt

Hi,

I noticed in one of the summations that IRBBB is not associated with bad outcomes. I get IRBBB on my EKG's sometimes.

Thanks

All of her posts are gone. If she was not spamming in every post, she may have deleted the posts herself for some reason. I think anyone who deleted them would have let Kitt know.

Actually, I saved the post, it is as follows. Please delete if it violates and of the forum rules. When I went to post a reply, it said it was locked by an administrator, but when I went back to the main page, it was gone. By using the browser back button, I was able to reclaim the original post. She seemed to be looking for assurance concerning a physician determined ailment, not looking for medical advice in lieu of a physician consultation. Such was the way I viewed it. I'm not sure what or where her second post was.

Hi I am a 19 yr old female. I went to the hospital for chest pain and there they gave me an EKG they told me I have what is called IRBBB and sent me to a cardiologist there I got an ultra sound and discovered I have PFO. What will happen to me? Chances of dying? Someone ease my mind please.

Good Afternoon,
 
I am sorry I cannot give you a better answer but Judy is right, if a Moderator banned this person they usually let the person from the Forum who is away know what happened.
 
Her post, as you inserted here, looks benign however she may have deleted her own comments for some personal reason.
 
Occasionally there are glitches in the system and we never do find out what caused the incident.
 
Thank you for your concern.
 
Kindly,
Kitt
