Treatment Advances Improve the Odds for Heart Failure Patients
Date:2/16/2012

evolve around protein, gene and stem cell transplantation therapies designed to help patients recover more fully after a heart attack.

"It is a reality that will take some more time to be fully realized," Yancy noted. "But it is assuredly coming down the road."

That said, he admits that the status quo is not entirely rosy, given that U.S. hospitals now see roughly 500,000 new heart failure patients come through their doors each year.

The key to lowering that number: helping the public connect the dots between an unhealthy lifestyle and harm to the heart.

"For many people, heart failure is a fuzzy disease," Yancy noted. "People commonly think about their risk for a dramatic event, like a heart attack. But heart failure needs to be on everyone's consciousness because it develops quietly over time, as the heart gets weighed down by burdens such as obesity, diabetes and smoking," he explained.

"So, it's important to galvanize the public so that everyone knows that heart failure can be treated, but also prevented," Yancy said. "Because even though we can't cure it, we do know how to handle it. So, we can't approach it as if it's an inevitability. Because it's not."
