Brief Summary:
This study is a prospective, multi-center, randomized, double-blind placebo-controlled study of subjects receiving the HM II LVAD as per the current FDA approved indications for use.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Heart Failure Device: HeartMate II (HMII) Drug: Warfarin Drug: acetylsalicylic acid (ASA) therapy Phase 4

Detailed Description:

This is a post-market clinical study of HM II patient management practices to be conducted in the United States.

Subjects will be randomized in a 1:1 fashion to the following research drug groups:

  1. Treatment Arm: Warfarin (INR target: 2.0-2.5, median: 2.25) + Placebo (1 pill/day)
  2. Control Arm: Warfarin (INR target: 2.0-2.5, median: 2.25) + ASA Therapy (81mg/day)

The study will investigate if subjects in the Treatment Arm experience a reduced incidence of non-surgical bleeding, without an increased risk of TE events.

Ages Eligible for Study:   50 Years and older   (Adult, Older Adult)
Sexes Eligible for Study:   All
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No
Criteria

Inclusion Criteria

  • Subject is receiving the HM II per standard of care (SOC) in accordance with the FDA approved indications for use
  • Subject is ≥ 50 years of age
  • Subject is receiving the HM II as their first LVAD
  • Subject or legally authorized representative (LAR) has signed an informed consent form (ICF).

Exclusion Criteria

  • Existence of ongoing mechanical circulatory support (MCS) other than intra-aortic balloon pump or Abiomed Impella® devices
  • Participation in any other clinical investigation(s) involving an MCS device, or an investigation(s) that is likely to confound study results or affect study outcome
  • Antiplatelet therapy is mandated for other conditions, in particular: a) recent coronary artery stenting (≤ 6 months), b) carotid artery disease, and c) other conditions where the investigator is not comfortable leaving subjects off-ASA or starting ASA post LVAD implantation. In situations where the investigator is uncertain, the Steering Committee can provide recommendation to the investigator as needed.
  • Subjects in whom heart transplantation is expected in ≤ 6 months
  • Subjects with a known ASA allergy
