I have already answered the question on this topic in this forum. She will require coronary angiogram and medication to reduced volume overload and pressure overload on heart. If angiogram is normal then disease is due to muscle called cardiomyopathy. Except cardiac transplant no definite cure. If angiogram is showing block she will require angioplasty or byepass depending the nature of blocks.
