Heart treatment options
There are a number of serious heart conditions that can lead to congestive heart failure, which later may require a heart transplant or ventricular assist device.
For patients with heart failure symptoms who need help managing their condition daily, we offer advanced therapies with the goal of improving the quality of life for patients facing the day-to-day challenges of heart failure, as well as reduce their hospital readmissions.
The better you can control your heart failure and the aggravating factors, the greater the possibility that you could postpone or prevent the need for transplant or LVAD.
Treatment for stiff heart or diastolic heart failure
- No medication has been shown to help a stiff heart relax and thus most therapies are aimed at controlling factors that worsen the condition such as hypertension, diabetes and sleep apnea.
- Diuretics can be used to help manage swelling and fluid retention.
