Abstract

Advancements in the field of heart failure have significantly improved both mortality and the quality of life of millions. However, heart failure generally remains a chronic disease with an insidious progression to organ failure despite optimal medical treatment. Early consideration of advanced therapies such as mechanical circulatory support and cardiac transplantation in advanced heart failure is essential. The purpose of this chapter is to assist the reader in the identification of patients with advanced heart failure that have not yet developed irreversible end-organ dysfunction, as interventions in this narrow therapeutic window results in improved post-surgical outcomes.
