Conditions We Treat
Cardiac amyloidosis is a rare disease that often goes undetected as a cause of heart failure. Many people do not experience symptoms in the early stages. This condition may have no known cause, occur with age or be passed down in families (familial amyloidosis).
Amyloid buildups grow over time which can lead to heart failure and other life-threatening complications. There is no cure, but treatments may slow disease progression and provide relief from side effects.
