"Help us evaluate if a minimal invasive implant can improve the function of the heart in heart failure patients"
Age: 18 and older
Healthy Volunteers: No
Keywords: Heart failure, V-Wave Shunt
Type: Medical devices study
6 Participants
We're inviting patients with heart failure to consider participating in a research study of an investigational medical device.

Heart failure also called Congested Heart Failure or CHF is a condition where the heart can not pump enough blood to meet the body's needs. As a result pressure rises in the left side of the heart and the lungs, leading to shortness of breath, tiredness, and difficulties doing daily activities. Also, heart failure patients may experience repeated hospitalizations, a poor quality of life, and a greatly reduced life expectancy.

The study device is a miniature implant designed to regulate the pressure in the left side of the heart and is a new way to tackle worsening of heart failure. The device is called the V-Wave Shunt and is placed during a minimally invasive procedure. The procedure is performed in a hospital and typically takes less than ninety minutes.

This clinical research study will determine if the device can improve the function of the heart and reduce symptoms and the need for hospitalization due to worsening heart failure.
This study requires

Participation in the study will be for a minimum of 1 year and a maximum of 7 years. You will be asked to come to the research site approximately 10 times.

Who can participate
