1 doctor agrees

In brief: Impaired heart

The weakened heart muscle causes symptoms related to heart failure, such as shortness of breath, easy fatigue, leg swelling etc.
And there is a risk of heart arrhythmia. If severe enough other organs began to fail because of impaired pumping function of the heart. There are treatments however to address these problems.
