1 doctor agrees
In brief: Heart failure
Normal ejection fraction of the heart is considered >55%.
Heart disease, of which coronary artery disease, hypertension, and valvular disease and less frequently myocarditis and cardiomyopathies are considered the major causes of heart failure that may result in poor ejection fraction. Whether it is restorable or not depends on the nature and severity of the disease and its reversibility.
