    Advanced Research in Heart Failure

    Heart Failure, often called congestive heart failure (CHF),is an inability of the heart to provide sufficient pump action to distribute blood flow to meet the needs of the body.Common causes of heart failure include myocardial infarction and other forms of ischemic heart disease, hypertension, valvular heart disease, and cardiomyopathy. The term heart failure is sometimes incorrectly used for other cardiac-related illnesses, such as myocardial infarction (heart attack) or cardiac arrest, which can cause heart failure but are not equivalent to heart failure.
    Heart failure is a common, costly, disabling, and potentially deadly condition.In developed countries, around 2% of adults suffer from heart failure, but in those over the age of 65, this increases to 6–10%.
    In this special issue, we intend to invite front-line researchers and authors to submit original research and review articles on exploring Heart Failure .
