Left bundle branch block (LBBB) and right bundle branch block (RBBB) are classic manifestations of bundle branch conduction disorders. However, a third form that is uncommon and underrecognized may exist that has features and pathophysiology of both: bilateral bundle branch block (BBBB). This unusual form of bundle branch block exhibits an RBBB pattern in lead V1 (terminal R wave) and an LBBB pattern in leads I and aVL (absence of S wave). This unique conduction disorder may confer an increased risk of adverse cardiovascular events. BBBB patients may be a subset of patients that respond well to cardiac resynchronization therapy.
