Congestive Heart Failure is a chronic condition in which the heart partially or completely loses the ability to pump blood to the body. It can occur gradually in life or happen spontaneously, even in healthy people. This site has a lot of information on the condition, its diagnosis, treatments, prognosis and how it effects other major organ systems.

Novel biomarkers have been developed to assess prognosis, response to treatment and also to understand the underlying mechanism of cardiac remodelling.
