About this Study:

The GUIDE-HF IDE clinical trial is intended to demonstrate the effectiveness of the CardioMEMS™ HF System in an expanded patient population including heart failure (HF) patients outside of the present indication, but at risk for future HF events or mortality.
Eligibility Criteria:

  • Diagnosis and treatment for heart failure (HF) (regardless of left ventricular ejection fraction (LVEF)) for > 90 days prior to the date of consent:

    a. Subjects should be on stable, optimally titrated medical therapy for at least 30 days, as recommended according to current American Heart Association (AHA)/American College of Cardiology (ACC) guidelines as standard-of-care for HF therapy in the United States, with any intolerance documented.

  • GUIDE-HF Randomized Arm Only: NYHA Class II, III or IV HF symptoms documented within 30 days prior to consent.
  • GUIDE-HF Single Arm Only: NYHA Class III HF symptoms documented within 30 days prior to consent.
  • HF hospitalization (HFH) within 12 months prior to consent and/or elevated N-terminal pro-Brain Natriuretic Peptide (NT-proBNP) (or Brain Natriuretic Peptide (BNP)) within 30 days prior to consent defined as:
    • Subjects with LVEF ≤ 40%: NT-proBNP ≥ 1000 pg/mL (or BNP ≥ 250 pg/mL).
    • Subjects with LVEF > 40%: NT-proBNP ≥ 700 pg/mL (or BNP ≥ 175 pg/mL).
    • Thresholds for NT-proBNP and BNP (for both LVEF ≤ 40% and LVEF > 40%) will be corrected for body mass index (BMI) using a 4% reduction per BMI unit over 25 kg/m2
  • ≥ 18 years of age
  • Chest circumference of < 65 inches, if BMI is > 35 kg/m2
  • Written informed consent obtained from subject
  • Willing and able to upload pulmonary artery (PA) pressure information and comply with the follow-up requirements
