Himadri Shankar

Background: One of the symptoms common to pathologies of various organs, including heart, lungs, stomach etc., includes ‘Chest pain’.The management of patients with acute myocardial infarction complicated by bundle branch block is a significant clinical problem and represents 8% to 13% of patients with acute infarction. Under the light of above mentioned data, we planned the present study to logically assess the clinical profile of acute myocardial infarction (MI) patients with bundle branch block. Materials & Methods:  Present study included assessment of clinical profile of patients reporting with chief complaint of acute MI. A total of 50 patients were included in the present study. After the admission, the standard 12- lead ECG was recorded and criteria given previously in the literature were used to define BBB (Left BBB and Right BBB). Follow-up record of all the patients was maintained upto one month time. Results were analysed by SPSS software. Results: Out of 50, 18 and 22 patients belonged to the age group of 41 to 60 years and 60 to 80 years. Significant results were obtained wile comparing the number of patients divided on the basis of their age. Significant results were obtained while comparing the occurrence of RBBB and LBBB in between males. Conclusion: Male patients within 60 to 80 years of age are at more risk for development of acute MI with BBB. Poor prognosis in these patients is associated with presence of other deliberating conditions like diabetes, hypertension or other systemic diseases
Key words: Clinical Profile, Bundle Branch, Myocardial Infarction.
