Any disease of the heart if severe enough, can cause heart failure. It could be a disease of the heart muscle or heart valve. Heart valves can be leaky or obstructed. Heart muscle can be damaged due to lack of blood supply, inflammation or infections. Heart muscles can be infiltrated by disease processes like storage diseases or amyloid.
