Abstract

Treatment of advanced heart failure is usually a challenge. The successful use of β-blockers to alleviate mild to moderate symptoms of cardiac dysfunction suggests that even severe cases of heart failure may be reversible. Transplantation remains the only sure way to obtain a fully functional heart, but new medications, mechanical devices, and Surgical procedures could eventually prove to be alternatives.
