Even complete RBBB is fully normal in 85% people.

Detailed Answer:
Hi,
Thanks for choosing this platform for your query,
Have gone through your query in detail.

Firstly mam Right bundle branch block is a normal finding( Even complete RBBB) in 85% of people.
When ever a patient is diagnosed with having RBBB in ecg a 2d echo test is done.
If 2d echo is normal no further test is required neither is patient given any medication.
So i would say that as of now you need not to worry to much.
Was a 2d echo ever done by you?
Are you symptomatic?
Waiting for answers.
Thank!

Brief Answer:
Follow up to patients query.

Detailed Answer:
Hi thanks for follow up,
If 2d echo is normal then presence of early repolarisation on ekg has no significance.
2d echo is far superior and better test to rule out cardiac pathology then ecg.
i would assure you that as echo is normal
you are fine.
Thanks!
