Left sided heart faiure
There was no specific area or forum for this guestion. Maybe cause they are rare. I had a Pheochromocytoma removed 3/5/09 from Rt. Adrenal. Had total R Adrenalectomy. Through the years I had horrible episodes os HTN. Now told from Echo that I have some mild L sided heart failure . Can this heal and get better over time if the source of the cause is gone? Can the thickining of the atrium and a heart murmur go away.

Yes if the cause for the cardiomyopathy was the pheochromocytoma or the poorly controlled hypertension, then the left heart function may improve. There is not much difference between normal and low normal systolic heart function, and an echocardiogram with these findings does not diagnose heart failure. This latter syndrome is a constellation of clinical findings, which can be caused by systolic dysfunction, diastolic dysfunction, among others.
