Parachute IV

A MULTINATIONAL TRIAL TO EVALUATE THE PARACHUTE IMPLANT SYSTEM: PARACHUTE PercutAneous Ventricular RestorAtion in Chronic Heart FailUre Due to Ischemic HearT DiseasE

Parachute IV [NCT01286116]

Description: The primary objective is to assess the safety of the CardioKinetix Parachute Implant and Delivery System in the partitioning of the left ventricle in patients with heart failure due to ischemic heart disease.


Device: PARACHUTE implant; Control: All appropriate medical therapy

Primary Investigator: Chung
