This clinical trial is for men and women moderate to severe heart failure (HF). The purpose of the study is to assess the safety and efficacy of the C-Pulse System, a device that is intended to relieve heart failure symptoms, improve quality of life and cardiac function, and reduce the need for heart failure hospitalization.
Unlike traditional heart assist devices, the C-Pulse system includes a small cuff around the aorta that inflates and deflates as the heart beats, increasing the heart’s oxygen supply and reducing the stress on the pumping chamber. It is implanted outside the bloodstream, and maybe disconnected for personal hygiene.
Study subjects are follow up for five years after the device is implanted.
Men and women age 18 and older diagnosed with heart failure of ACC/AHA Stage C and NYHA III to ambulatory Class IV, who have:
