Peter Clemmensen, C3 2019 – Managing Right Bundle Branch Block

Published Online: July 5th 2019

We caught up with Dr Peter Clemmensen (Department of General and Interventional Cardiology, University Heart Center, Hamburg, Germany) at C3 2019 for his thoughts on the management of right bundle-branch block (RBBB), along with the potential elevated cardiovascular risk in patients with acute coronary syndrome, the need for coronary angiography and his practical advice for physicians managing RBBB.

Speaker’s Disclosures: Peter Clemmensen has a research contract with Philips Healthcare.

Questions:
1. Can you explain why right bundle-branch block (RBBB) presents such elevated potential cardiovascular risk in patients with acute coronary syndrome? (0:04)
2. Recent findings suggest that RBBB is an indication for coronary angiography – can you explain in which patient populations this is most appropriate? (0:37)
3. What practical advice would you share with physicians managing RBBB in their patients, and how should they consider selection of acute angiography as part of their treatment strategy? (2:16)
