Brief Summary:
This is a prospective, multi-center, open-label, single-arm feasibility trial to assess device safety and efficacy of the Cordella™ Heart Failure System in 10 NYHA Class III heart failure patients who will receive the Cordella™ Sensor implant.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Heart Failure NYHA Class III Device: Cordella™ Heart Failure System Not Applicable

Detailed Description:
The objectives of this study are to establish that the Cordella™ Sensor can be safely delivered, deployed, and remain stable within the target pulmonary artery (PA) segment through 30 days post-implant as well as to measure the accuracy of Cordella™ Sensor PA pressure measurements compared with fluid-filled catheter PA pressure measurements obtained by standard right heart catheterization (RHC) at 90 days post implant. Safety measures will include the frequency and rates of adverse events, both overall and for each specific event, which will be collected throughout the study. Subjects will remain in this trial for 24 months.

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: Cordella™ Heart Failure System
Cordella™ Heart Failure System and implant of Cordella™ Pulmonary Artery Sensor System (CorPASS)
Device: Cordella™ Heart Failure System

The Cordella™ Heart Failure System collects, records, and transmits physiologic data and communications from the patient at home to clinicians for assessment, patient communication, and patient-centered heart failure management. The system consists of the following components:

  1. myCordella™ Patient Management Portal
  2. myCordella™ Hub
  3. myCordella™ Peripherals, including the Cordella™ Pulmonary Artery Sensor System (CorPASS)

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Safety Freedom form Adverse events [ Time Frame: 30 days ]
    Freedom from adverse events associated with use of the Cordella™ HF System

  2. Efficacy: Accuracy [ Time Frame: 90 days ]
    Accuracy of Cordella™ Sensor PA pressure measurements, compared to standard-of-care fluid-filled catheter PA pressure measurements obtained by standard Right Heart Catheter

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Frequency of Adverse Events [ Time Frame: 30 days and 2 years ]
    Frequency of adverse events throughout the study

  2. Device/system-related complications [ Time Frame: 30 days and 2 years ]
    Device/system-related complications

  3. Pressure sensor failure rate [ Time Frame: 30 days and 2 years ]
    Pressure sensor failure rate throughout the study

  4. Accuracy of Cordella™ sensor pressure measurements [ Time Frame: 2 years ]
    Accuracy of Cordella™ Sensor PA pressure measurements compared with echo pulmonary artery pressure (PAP) measurements

  5. Percentage of device success [ Time Frame: 90 days ]
    Percentage of device success as documented by ability of the System to successfully transmit collected data to a secure database

  6. Change in Pulmonary Artery (PA) pressure [ Time Frame: 90 days ]
    Change in PA pressure pre- and post-implant

  7. Heart Failure (HF) Hospitalizations [ Time Frame: 90 days ]
    Frequency of HF hospitalizations, HF treatments in a hospital day-care setting, or urgent outpatient clinic HF visits.

  8. Quality of Life [ Time Frame: 90 days and 2 years ]
    Quality of Life measured by KCCQ

  9. Quality of Life [ Time Frame: 90 days and 2 years ]
    Quality of Life measured by EuroQOL EQ-5D-5L

  10. Adherence to regular myCordella™ Peripherals measurements [ Time Frame: 90 days and 2 years ]
    Adherence to regular myCordella™ Peripherals measurements
