Congestive Heart Failure (CHF)
Congestive heart failure (CHF) is a condition in which the heart cannot pump enough blood to meet your body’s needs. Although the term sounds frightening, the definition of CHF does not mean your heart has stopped — it just indicates it is not working effectively.
The UPMC Heart and Vascular Institute's Advanced Heart Failure Center is among the nation’s leading programs of its kind and the only full-service center in western Pennsylvania. We offer standard and minimally invasive procedures to treat CHF and other serious heart conditions.
