Specializes in Pulmonary Critical Care

Some kinds of dilated cardiomyopathy improve with time, such as those caused by alcohol abuse, which may improve with abstinence. In other cases the standard medications for heart failure do not cure, but can improve heart function and devices like an aicd help control arrythmias.
