• QRS complex widening, usually 90 to 120 ms
• Left axis deviation beyond minus 45 degrees with no other cause (such as inferior myocardial infarction)
• Small R wave and large S wave in the inferior leads
• Slurred S wave in V5 and V6
Points To Remember:
1. The signal exiting the AV node is carried rapidly to the inferior aspect of the LV and all of the RV through the intact left posterior fascicle and right bundle, where quick depolarization occurs. However, conduction to the high lateral and upper portions of the left ventricle is slower and must proceed cell-to-cell due to the blocked left anterior fascicle. Therefore, the latter portion of the QRS
2. Left anterior fascicular block is the most common intraventricular conduction disturbance associated with acute anterior myocardial infarction, with the left anterior descending artery usually involved.
