Study Population
patients with NYHA class III heart failure

Inclusion Criteria:

  • Diagnosis of NYHA class III heart failure
  • At least 1 heart failure hospitalization within previous 12 months
  • Patients with reduced LVEF heart failure should be receiving a beta blocker for 3 months and an ACE-I or ARB for one month unless in the investigator's opinion, the patient is intolerant to beta blockers, ACE-I or ARB
  • BMI ≤ 35. Patients with BMI >35 will require their chest circumference to be measured at the axillary level. If > 65 inches the patient will not be eligible for the study.
  • Pulmonary artery branch diameter ≥ 7mm - (implant target artery - assessed during the right heart catheterization)

Exclusion Criteria:

  • Active infection
  • History of recurrent (> 1) pulmonary embolism or deep vein thrombosis
  • Inability to tolerate a right heart catheterization
  • A major cardiovascular event (e.g., myocardial infarction, open heart surgery, stroke, etc.) within previous 2 months
  • Cardiac resynchronization device (CRT) implanted within previous 3 months
  • Glomerular Filtration Rate (GFR) < 25 ml/min (obtained within 2 weeks of implant) who are non-responsive to diuretic therapy or who are on chronic renal dialysis
  • Congenital heart disease or mechanical right heart valve
  • Likely to undergo heart transplantation or VAD within the next 6 months
  • Known coagulation disorders
  • Hypersensitivity or allergy to aspirin, and/or clopidogrel
