About prognosis: The 'prognosis' of Heart disease usually refers to the likely outcome of Heart disease. The prognosis of Heart disease may include the duration of Heart disease, chances of complications of Heart disease, probable outcomes, prospects for recovery, recovery period for Heart disease, survival rates, death rates, and other outcome possibilities in the overall prognosis of Heart disease. Naturally, such forecast issues are by their nature unpredictable.
