Ancora Heart, Inc.

Brief Summary:
This is a multi-center, non-randomized, prospective Early Feasibility Study to evaluate the AccuCinch® Ventricular Restoration System in patients with symptomatic heart failure and concomitant functional mitral regurgitation that have stable symptoms on guideline-directed medical therapy

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Heart Failure Mitral Valve Insufficiency Cardiomyopathies Device: Mitral valve repair Not Applicable

Detailed Description:
Device name changed from AccuCinch® Ventricular Repair System to AccuCinch® Ventricular Restoration System, FDA Approval Date 08Aug2020

Layout table for study information
Study Type : Interventional  (Clinical Trial)
Actual Enrollment : 35 participants
Allocation: N/A
Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment
Masking: None (Open Label)
Primary Purpose: Device Feasibility
Official Title: Early Feasibility Study of the AccuCinch® Ventricular Restoration System
Actual Study Start Date : August 2016
Actual Primary Completion Date : January 2020
Estimated Study Completion Date : March 2024

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: AccuCinch® Ventricular Restoration System Device: Mitral valve repair

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. 30-Day Safety [ Time Frame: 30-day ]

    Assess 30-day safety defined as device-related or procedure-related major adverse events (MAEs).

    MAE is a composite of death; myocardial infarction; emergent conversion to surgery; stroke; major cardiac structure complication; major vascular complication; and heart failure-related hospitalization.

Layout table for eligibility information
Ages Eligible for Study:   18 Years and older   (Adult, Older Adult)
Sexes Eligible for Study:   All
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No

Inclusion Criteria:

  • Study patient is at least 18-years old
  • Severity of FMR: ≥ Moderate (i.e., 2+, according to Stone et al Clinical Trial Design Principles and Endpoint Definitions for Transcatheter Mitral Valve Repair and Replacement: Part 1: Clinical Trial Design Principles. A Consensus Document from the Mitral Valve Academic Research Consortium11; and 2003 ASE Guidelines for grading mitral regurgitation10)
  • Ejection Fraction: ≥20 to ≤60%
  • Symptom Status: NYHA II-IV (i.e., ambulatory)
  • Treatment and compliance with optimal guideline directed medical therapy for heart failure for at least 1 month
  • Surgical risk: Subject is eligible for cardiac surgery (specific risk score or comorbidities should demonstrate high risk features, as determined by the Heart Team)
  • Completion of all qualifying diagnostic and functional tests and agrees to comply with study follow-up schedule

Exclusion Criteria:

  • Patients with significant organic mitral valve pathology (e.g. myxomatous degeneration, mitral valve prolapse or flail leaflets)
  • Myocardial infarction or any percutaneous cardiovascular intervention, cardiovascular surgery, or carotid surgery within 30 days
  • Prior surgical, transcatheter, or percutaneous mitral valve intervention
  • Untreated clinically significant coronary artery disease (CAD) requiring revascularization
  • Hemodynamic instability: Hypotension (systolic pressure <90 mmHg) or requirement for inotropic support or mechanical hemodynamic support
  • Any planned cardiac surgery or interventions within the next 6 months (including right heart procedures)
  • NYHA class IV (i.e., non-ambulatory) or American College of Cardiology (ACC)/American Heart Association (AHA) Stage D heart failure
  • Fixed pulmonary artery systolic pressure >70 mmHg
  • Severe tricuspid regurgitation (per ASE guidelines and graded by the Echo Core Lab)
  • Modified Rankin Scale ≥ 4 disability
  • Hypertrophic cardiomyopathy, restrictive cardiomyopathy, constrictive pericarditis, or any other structural heart disease causing heart failure other than dilated cardiomyopathy of either ischemic or non-ischemic etiology.
  • Anatomical pathology/constraints preventing appropriate access/implant of the AccuCinch® Ventricular Restoration System (e.g., femoral arteries will not support a 20F system)
  • Renal insufficiency (i.e., eGFR of <30ml/min/1.73m2; Stage 4 or 5 CKD)
  • Moderate or severe aortic valve stenosis or regurgitation or aortic valve prosthesis
  • Fluoroscopic or echocardiographic evidence of severe aortic arch calcification, mobile aortic atheroma, intracardiac mass, thrombus or vegetation
  • Active bacterial endocarditis
