Heart Failure and Transplant Cardiology

Heart failure is a chronic condition where the heart is unable to pump blood effectively to meet the body's needs. This can happen due to various reasons such as coronary artery disease, hypertension, heart valve disorders, or other conditions that weaken the heart muscle. As a result, the body may not receive enough oxygen and nutrients, leading to symptoms such as fatigue, shortness of breath, swelling in the legs, and difficulty exercising.

Transplant cardiology is a subspecialty of cardiology focused on the evaluation and management of patients who may need heart transplantation. Transplant cardiologists are experts in assessing patients for heart transplantation candidacy, managing patients before and after transplantation, and overseeing the complex medical care involved in the transplant process.
