I have been having chest pain- dull ache from my left to center of chest. I do have CHF and ejection fraction at 40%. What could be causing the ache?
Tropinon I test - negative / ejection fraction 35% - 40%. High BP / diabetes patient for the last 12 years. Would you recommend an open heart surgery?

Cardiac optimization: By taking beta blockers to have an optimum heart rate of close to 60 BPM, taking Angiotensin Converting Enzyme Inhibitor to protect from remodeling, taking aspirin to protect from further risk of MI, taking Statin to decrease inflammatory and control lipids, undergo cardiac rehabilitation; sometime biventricular cardiac stimulator can help, also EP consultant may consider ablation if many PVCs. ...Read more
Ejection fraction: In 37 yf the ejection fraction should be normal between 55-70%. Provided you do not have any heart problem. To be precise exact, doctor has to know wt, cardiac out put, heart rate, stroke volume& lvedv. Women have slightly high stroke volume. Not very much gender difference for ef%. Age certainly plays role. Elderly people have lessef%. Ef also depends on modality of test. Good luck. ...Read more

Poor heart function!: Ejection fraction is a measure of the pumping ability of the heart, and a low ef refers to suboptimal pumping ability in a diseased or damaged heart. The lower the number, the worse the heart function or capability.
