|A Randomized Study of the MitraClip Device in Heart Failure Patients With Clinically Significant Functional Mitral Regurgitation
|A Randomized Study of the MitraClip Device in Heart Failure Patients With Clinically Significant Functional Mitral Regurgitation
This trial is a randomized study of the MitraClip device in heart failure patients with clinically significant functional mitral regurgitation. A hierarchical composite of all-cause mortality and recurrent heart failure hospitalizations is hypothesized to occur at a lower rate with the use of the MitraClip device in addition to optimal standard medical therapy compared to optimal standard of care therapy alone.
This study is a clinical evaluation of the safety and effectiveness of the MitraClip System in the treatment of clinically significant functional mitral regurgitation in patients with chronic heart failure. The objective is to further study the safety and effectiveness of the MitraClip System for the treatment of clinically significant functional mitral regurgitation in New York Heart Association Functional Class III or IV chronic heart failure patients.
Endpoint Classification: Safety/Efficacy Study
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Masking: Open Label
Primary Purpose: Treatment
The MitraClip System includes a MitraClip device, a Steerable Guide Catheter, and a MitraClip Delivery System that enables placement of the MitraClip device on the mitral valve leaflets
- Experimental: MitraClip Device
Subjects randomized to the Device group will undergo the MitraClip procedure in addition to optimal standard medical therapy
Intervention: Device: MitraClip
- No Intervention: Control
Subjects randomized to the Control group will receive optimal standard of care therapy alone
