Different medications can help symptoms of Congestive Heart Failure. In people with advanced Congestive Heart Failure, medical procedures are an option, as medication and lifestyle changes may not be enough. Sometimes a procedure is necessary to treat congestive heart failure. If a heart artery is blocked then placing a coronary stent or performing coronary artery bypass grafting surgery can improve heart function. If a heart valve is diseased (either not opening of leaking) the replacement or repair of the heart valves may be necessary.
For those who have severe heart problems and the above treatments are not working, an implanted left ventricular assist device might be used as a temporary remedy before a heart transplant. The last resort for doctors is doing a heart transplant.
