Until recently, there were no effective medications for cardiac amyloidosis. We could only treat the symptoms and refer patients for heart transplants. Today, thanks in part to cutting edge clinical trials done at Ochsner, exciting new therapies are available. With rapid diagnosis and multidisciplinary management from the experienced team at Ochsner, it’s a new day for patients with what is sometimes called “stiff heart syndrome.” Longer, healthier lives are now possible for people with this diagnosis.
