HTN in an of itself does NOT cause LBBB. A secondary cardiomyopathy could cause LBBB, but not HTN alone. Kilbad (talk) 11:56, 25 April 2008 (UTC)

I agree. HTN is not necessarilly a cause of LBBB, it should be changed to dilated cardiomyopathy. rmosler (talk) 20:34, 15 January 2009 (UTC)

Merging with Bundle Branch Block[edit]

Anybody any thoughts on merging Left branch block (and presumably right bundle branch, the hemiblocks and trifascicular blocks) onto "Bundle branch block" for a more generic page with less repetition? Myself I'm all for shorter more concise pages but I thought it was worth making a decision on.Arfgab (talk) 12:02, 27 March 2010 (UTC)

I'd recommend keeping them separate. Any article that had to cover all of these conditions together would be unwieldy. --Arcadian (talk) 12:19, 27 March 2010 (UTC)
