Be careful: This is an experimental treatment that is showing a lot of future promise. The overall efficacy and side effects are still being evaluated That being said there are a LOT of quacks out there selling this as a treatment to hopeless patients for a huge amount of money. Don't blow your life savings on one of these overseas clinics, it will be a waste of time/money and dangerous.

CHF: Treatment depends on what the cause of the CHF is. Could be surgical, could be medical. Systolic CHF is different from diastolic CHF and valvar stenosis CHF is different from valvar insufficiency chf. Virtually all kinds have diuretic as part of the treatment.
