In brief: Heart failure

Heart failure caused by a prior myocardial infarction (heart attack) is a very serious problem. Fortunately there are well-defined treatments including medications and procedures.
Patients with this condition should be under the care of a cardiologist. It may also help to get a second opinion here on HealthTap to review treatment options.
