ABSTRACT
The article discusses the incidence and significance of fascicular blocks in coronary care unit. These cases of acute myocardial infarction were continuously monitored at least for 72 hours. The diagnosis of myocardial infarction was based on strict electrocardiography criteria formulated by WHO. The diagnosis of bifascicular block involving right bundle branch and left anterior division was put forward. For diagnosing Right Bundle Branch Block with Left Inferior Hemiblock reliance was oriented to the right more than 90�.
