This is an evaluative, monocentric study in patients with chronic ischemic heart disease and left bundle branch block who received an ICD-CRT. It is an early investigation on the safety and effects of a single administration of bone marrow derived mononuclear cells after implantation of an ICD-CRT device as an adjunct to CRT and usual drug treatment.
Procedure: Intramyocardial Cell therapy
Endpoint Classification: Safety/Efficacy Study
Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment
Masking: Open Label
Primary Purpose: Treatment

| Estimated Primary Completion Date:
||May 2013 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Procedure: Intramyocardial Cell therapy
Intramyocardial Cell therapy in patients with chronic ischemic heart disease after ICD CRT Implantation
|Ages Eligible for Study:
||18 Years to 80 Years
|Genders Eligible for Study:
|Accepts Healthy Volunteers:
- chronic left ventricular dysfunction (ejection fraction <35 %) in chronic ischemic heart disease and asynchronic contraction with indication for a biventricular stimulation (CRT, chronic resynchronization therapy), who do not have an improvement of >15% of LVEF 3 months after CRT-device implantation
- wall motion dysfunction of any territory
- left bundle branch block
- Patients were on individual optimal treatment for chronic ischemic heart disease with one or a combination of the following drug types: diuretics, ß-blockers, ACE-inhibitors, AT1 blockers and/or lipid lowering agents for at least 30 days before CRT Implantation
- patients with left ventricular dysfunction due to other reasons than ischemic cardiomyopathy, e.g. hypertension, dilatative cardiomyopathy
- with relevant valvular disease;
- Aneurysma of the anterior myocardial wall or myocardial wall thickness of < 5 mm,
- with overt heart failure, other than ischemic cardiomyopathy,
- with history of stroke and/or transient ischemic attack (TIA),
- with history of thromboembolic event (e.g. phlebothrombosis, pulmonary embolism), bleeding disorders and known disease of the coagulation system;
- with extensive deviations of baseline laboratory values and significant findings at physical examination which in the opinion of the investigator may worsen under treatment;
- with severe systemic disease - (e.g. known or suspected anaphylaxia, intolerance against X-ray or contrast agent and, pre-malignant and malignant disease)
- atrial fibrillation with average heart rate >70 bpm
- pregnant women and women of childbearing potential who have not had a negative pregnancy test within 48 hours before treatment;
- with any disease or condition that seriously compromises the function of other body systems than the heart and/or might interfere with conduct of the study and interpretation of the results;
- patients with a chronic or acute HIV-, HBV-, HCV-infection;
- improvement of more than 15% of LVEF 3 months after CRT-device implantation
- patients who have a ICD Implantation for secondary prophylactic indication. These patients show a history of resuscitation, VT or syncope.
- patients who are currently participating in another investigational drug or device study
