Heart Failure and Cardiomyopathies
Infiltrative disorders of the heart such as sarcoidosis and amyloidosis.
Disorder of the heart muscle leading to heart failure.
Disorder of the heart usually aggravated by strenuous physical activity and eventually leading to ventricular arrhythmias.
Heart failure with preserved ejection fraction
Patients with heart failure with preserved EF have normal but dysfunctional ventricles that result in congestion and heart failure symptoms. More common in elderly patients especially females.
Disorder of the heart where there is hypertrophy of the heart muscle that can eventually lead to heart failure or sudden death.
Heart failure with reduced ejection fraction
Patients with heart failure with reduced EF (heart function LVEF <50%). They require intensive medical therapy and will be evaluated for prevention of sudden death.
