However occurrence of RBBB may be seen with more proximal left anterior descending artery (LAD) involvement, as a result its prognosis may be worse due to a larger myocardial area which is jeopardized and early revascularization with primary percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) can be more beneficial in patients with RBBB.
