Enrollment in this trial is temporarily on hold.
This clinical trial is for men and women who are diagnosed with ischemic or congestive heart failure (CHF) after a myocardial infarction (MI or “heart attack”).
The purpose of the study is to assess the efficacy and long-term safety of the CardioKinetix Parachute device, an umbrella-shaped membrane that is is implanted inside the left ventricle of the heart. This creates a partition in the ventricle, reducing the effective size of the chamber and restoring its natural shape somewhat, which has been shown to be important for the treatment of heart failure. It is implanted with a catheter procedure, avoiding the risks of surgery.
Study subjects will be followed up for 5 years after placement of the stent.
Men and women between 18 and 79 years old with:
Additional assessments will determine surgical risk.
Detailed eligibility requirements will be reviewed when you contact the study team.
