Abstract

Hoarding disorder (HD) is characterized by an accumulation of possessions due to excessive acquisition of, or difficulty discarding possessions. Evidence demonstrates an increased cardiovascular response in patients with HD. Cognitive-behavioral therapy modifications are described for HD patients with heart failure to compensate for fatigability, syncope and falls risk.
