  • LV end-diastolic diameter ≥55 mm
  • Symptom Status: NYHA III-IVa (i.e., ambulatory)
  • Treatment and compliance with optimal guideline directed medical and device-based therapies for heart failure (unless contraindicated or intolerant) for at least 3 months and stable doses for 1 month with stable defined as no more than 100% increase or 50% decrease of total daily doses.
  • Patients with left bundle branch block pattern and QRS duration >150ms are required to have a CRT device for at least 3 months
  • Patients required to have an ICD are required to have ICD implant at least 1 month prior to enrollment
  • Able and willing to complete all qualifying diagnostic and functional tests and agrees to comply with study follow-up schedule

Exclusion Criteria:

  • Myocardial infarction or any percutaneous cardiovascular intervention, cardiovascular surgery, or carotid surgery within 3 months
  • Mitral regurgitation grade 3 (moderate-severe) or more
  • Untreated clinically significant coronary artery disease (CAD) requiring revascularization

  • NYHA class IVb (i.e., non-ambulatory)
  • Significant RV dysfunction (TAPSE < 14)
  • Severe tricuspid regurgitation
  • 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 or constraints preventing appropriate access/implant of the AccuCinch® Ventricular Repair System (e.g., femoral arteries will not support an 20F system)
  • 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
  • History of any stroke within the prior 3 months or Modified Rankin Scale ≥ 4 disability from any prior stroke
  • Subjects in whom anticoagulation or antiplatelet therapy is contraindicated
  • Known allergy to nitinol, polyester, or polyethylene
  • Any prior true anaphylactic reaction to contrast agents; defined as known anaphylactoid or other non-anaphylactic allergic reactions to contrast agents that cannot be adequately pre-medicated prior to the index procedure.
  • Life expectancy < 1 year due to non-cardiac conditions
  • Currently participating in another interventional investigational study
  • Implant or revision of any rhythm management device (CRT or CRT-D) prior 3 months or implantable cardioverter defibrillator within the prior 1 month
  • Subjects on high dose steroids or immunosuppressant therapy
  • Female subjects who are pregnant, of child bearing potential without a documented birth control method, or lactating
