Single-arm, open label, subjects with Congestive Heart Failure, with ischemic etiology.
Non-invasive, low-intensity extracoporeal shockwaves at energy density of 0.99 mJ/mm2. 9 treatment sessions, 20 minutes each, over a period of 9 weeks (3 sessions on weeks 1, 5 and 9).
- The change in the number of myocardial segments that improve their contractility(at rest and at stress)at 6 months post baseline evaluations, evaluated by echocardiography. [ Time Frame: 6 months ]An echo examination shall be used to evaluate myocardial contractility post treatments.
- 6 Minutes Walk Test (6MWT) [ Time Frame: 6 months ]Evaluation of 6MWT time from baseline to 6 months post baseline.
