Brief Answer: Looks like nothing very significant Detailed Answer: Left bundle branch can occur with or without the underlying cardiac problem. If it is incidently detected and work up has been fine. If your echo TMT and Holter are normal than I see no reason for concern nor will there be any need for treatment
