In brief: Many reasons
Most patients with heart failure can live a long life nowadays.
It depends on how severe it is. Factors that determine how long you live are:1. How severe it is 2. What is the underlying cause 3. How good is your treatment 4. How compliant you are with the treatment 5. What other illnesses you have 6. How old you are so find a good doctor and do what he advises and you should be around a while.
