Enlargement or thickening of the heart muscle — a frequent cause of heart failure known as cardiomyopathy — can be reversed by gradually introducing appropriate medication, regular monitoring, cardiac rehabilitation and lifestyle changes.
Full heart failure recovery, or myocardial recovery, can take months to restore your heart’s normal function.
You may be eligible for the Norton Heart & Vascular Institute Myocardial Recovery Program if you meet a key criteria for heart failure — the left ventricle is pumping only 40% or less of blood from the chamber — and you have been taking heart-failure medication for less than three months. Recovery is achieved when your heart can pump 50% or more of the blood from the left ventricle.
Norton Heart & Vascular Institute offers patient resources to support you and your family, including free classes for people of all ages who are seeking to improve cardiovascular health or living with a heart condition.
