Reporting Groups
  Description
Stem Cell Therapy

Subjects are randomized to receive Stem Cell Therapy (treatment) at the time of enrollment where cells are delivered after NOGA mapping and cells injected with the Myostar catheter.

Stem Cell Therapy: Cells are injected under electromechanical guidance and delivered by the Myostar catheter after NOGA mapping.

Control

Placebo patients will receive injections of plasma (control) instead of stem cells. Placebo patients are able to crossover and receive active treatment at 6 months if they meet the criteria.

Plasma control: Placebo patients receive an injection of plasma containing 5 % albumin the the same quantity as the stem cell arm. A total of 15 injections of 0.2 ml to total 3.0 ml.
