Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: CORolla™ TAA Stand Alone
Single arm study design including with patients with isolated HFpEF, in NYHA f. Cl. III-IV. These patients will receive the CORolla™ TAA device. For assessments of results, intra-patient comparisons of pre-procedure and follow-up data will be performed;
Device: CORolla™ TAA device

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Number of participants with All-cause mortality and Serious Adverse Events (SAEAs) [ Time Frame: 6 months ]

    Investigational device safety with the intended study population with respect to 6 months follow up will be demonstrated using the following:

    All-cause mortality and Serious Adverse Events (SAEAs) throughout 6 months post-surgery.

  2. Incidence of in-hospital procedure success. [ Time Frame: up ot 24 hour. ]
    Success of the implant surgical procedure and ability to position the CORolla® TAA will be determined according to Implantation Rating Questionnaire.

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Rate of HF death and re-hospitalization due to HF (including IV diuretic) [ Time Frame: 6 months ]
  2. Rate of HF death and re-hospitalization due to HF (including IV diuretic) [ Time Frame: 12 months ]
  3. Rate, type and severity of procedure related and device-related events [ Time Frame: 30 days ]
  4. Rate of device related Major Adverse Cardiac and Neurological Events (MACNE) [ Time Frame: up to 6 months ]
  5. Change in Quality of Life (QoL) Questionnaire [ Time Frame: up to 24 months ]
    Minnesota Living with Heart Failure.

  6. Change in New York Heart Association functional Class (NYHA f. Cl). [ Time Frame: up to 24 months ]
  7. Change in exercise capacity as measured by the Six-Minute Walk test. [ Time Frame: up to 24 months ]
  8. Device impact on diastolic dysfunction markers assessed by conventional echocardiography imaging and novel approach including Tissue Doppler Imaging (TDI). [ Time Frame: up to 24 months ]
    Composite measure: Left atrial volume index [ml/m^2], Early mitral flow velocity E [ml/sec], Mitral flow velocity during atrial systole A [ml/sec], E/A ratio, Mitral annular velocity e' [mm/sec], Declaration time [msec], E/e' [ml/mm], Left ventricular mass [gr], Ejection fiction [%], Pulmonary venous flow [m/sec], Transmitral flow propagation velocity [cm/sec].

  9. Change of Wedge pressure [ Time Frame: up to 24 months ]
    For safety assessment and impact of CORolla ® TAA therapy on this marker of diastolic dysfunction.

  10. Change in Pulmonary Capillary Wedge Pressure during handgrip/ergometry [ Time Frame: up to 24 months ]
    Applicable only to patients who are in a clinical condition that enables them to have the test and at sites that have the experience and the capabilities to perform this test.

  11. Change in exercise testing during echocardiography [ Time Frame: up to 24 months ]
    Composite measure: Maximal exercise tolerance defined as the number of metabolic equivalent (METs) at baseline and maximal: Early mitral flow velocity E [ml/sec], Mitral annular velocity e' [mm/sec] and E/e' [ml/mm]. Applicable only to patients who are in a clinical condition that enables them to have the test and at sites that have the experience to perform this test.

  12. Change in VO2 Max [ Time Frame: up to 24 months ]
    Applicable only to patients who are in a clinical condition that enables them to have the test and at sites that have the experience and the capabilities to perform this test.

  13. Changes in cardiac medications, including daily diuretic dose. [ Time Frame: up to 24 months ]
    The dose of furosemide [mg/d] and thiazide [mg/d] before and after the procedure and during follow up will be recorded and compared.
