Yes and No: In 400 words? Well there are lots of things that can go wrong with the heart. The muscle can be weak, the valves can lea. If the arteries bet blocked it can damage the muscle and cause heart failure. There can be infections of the heart or tumors. There can be rhythm problems making it beat to fast or slow. So I am about out fo words but not too bad for four hundred letters more or less.
