Expert management of advanced heart failure
When you have heart failure, the heart is not able to pump as well as it should. Blood and fluid may back up into the lungs, and some parts of the body don’t get enough oxygen-rich blood to work normally. These problems caused by advanced heart failure lead to the symptoms you feel.
The cause of the heart failure will guide the treatment plan. If your heart failure is caused by a valve disorder, then surgery may be done to fix the valve. If your heart failure is caused by a disease, such as anemia, then the underlying disease will be treated. Although there is no cure for heart failure due to damaged heart muscle, the heart doctors here use many forms of treatment to manage the symptoms very effectively.
