Brief Summary:
First in Human Clinical Investigation of the FIRE1 Device/System to evaluate the feasibility and safety of implanting the FIRE1 system in stable HF patients.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Heart Failure Device: FIRE1 System Not Applicable

Detailed Description:
Eligible patients who have HF and were hospitalised/treated for an episode of worsening HF within the last 6 months. This non-randomised FIH trial will enrol a total of 50 patients and the primary safety and technical endpoints will be assessed at 3 months. Safety measures will include an assessment of all adverse events. Subjects will remain in this study for 24 months.

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Primary Safety Endpoint - Procedural success and freedom from FIRE1 sensor complications [ Time Frame: 3 months ]
    The primary, composite endpoint is success of the FIRE1 sensor, which includes procedural success defined as sensor deployment at the intended site without acute device or procedural related complications and freedom from sensor complications including device migration, clinically significant fracture and/ or clinically significant perforation of the Inferior Vena Cava (IVC) or symptomatic caval thrombosis.

  2. Primary Technical Endpoint - Signal acquisition from the FIRE1 sensor [ Time Frame: 3 months ]
    Technical success defined as signal acquisition immediately post implantation and at an attended clinic visit.

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Secondary Safety Endpoint: Freedom from symptomatic access site thrombosis confirmed by ultrasound [ Time Frame: 3 months ]
    Freedom from symptomatic access site thrombosis confirmed by ultrasound. Freedom from a significant hematoma (defined as requiring intervention, transfusion or prolonging hospitalisation).

  2. Secondary Technical Endpoint - Successful transmission of FIRE1 signal. [ Time Frame: 3 months ]
    Successful transmission of a FIRE1 sensor reading from the patient's home.

Sexes Eligible for Study:   All
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No

Main Inclusion Criteria

  • Adults 18 years or older with heart failure with any of the following in the past 6 months: a decompensation due to heart failure resulting in a heart failure hospitalisation, heart failure treatment in a hospital day-care setting or urgent outpatient heart failure visit
  • Receiving treatment in accordance with internationally recognised guidelines.
