Same patients with dilated myocardiopathies with large areas of fibrosis has not been as successful after Cardiac Resynchronization Therapy, for Heart Failure patients in functional class III or IV. Therefore the investigators have decided to associate the Stem-Cell implant with Cardiac Resynchronization Therapy in these patients.

Condition Intervention Phase
Heart Failure
Procedure: Pacing and Stem Cells Implantations.
Procedure: Pacing and Stem Cells Implantation
Phase 1

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment
Masking: Single Blind (Investigator)

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Ejection Fraction(EF)-(Eco- Sympson):It is the comparison of these measurements between late pre and post operative. NYHA: Comparison of these measurements between late pre and post operative. [ Time Frame: 24 months ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Ejection Fraction (Echo/Sympson) and functional class(NYHA). [ Time Frame: 24 months. ]

Estimated Enrollment: 30
Study Start Date: November 2008
Estimated Study Completion Date: December 2011
Estimated Primary Completion Date: December 2011 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Intervention Details:
    Procedure: Pacing and Stem Cells Implantations.
    Implantation of Cardiac Ressyncrhonization combined with the implantation of Stem Cells Hematopoietics.
    Procedure: Pacing and Stem Cells Implantation
    Pacing and Stem Cells Implantation.
Detailed Description:
About 120cc of blood are collected from the iliac bone marrow under epidural anesthesia.In the cell therapy lab this blood is harvested and mononuclear cells are separated.This procedure takes roughly 4 hours.After dilution the mononuclear cells are injected into the cardiac muscles with fibroses area through 20 shots.This procedure is indicated for patients with cardiac ischemia and left ventricular dysfunction(desynchrony), on whom all the others known therapies have failed.
