CardioMEMS HF System Post Approval Study


  • Heart failure

Study Name

CardioMEMS HF System Post Approval Study


Phase 4


The purpose of this study is to confirm the safety and effectiveness of the CardioMEMS HF System in the commercial setting for patients with heart failure. The CardioMEMS HF System, which has been approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, provides a method to measure pulmonary artery pressures by using a small wireless sensor implanted into the pulmonary artery (a vessel close to the heart). Once implanted, the sensor communicates through radio frequency to an electronic unit and then transmits this valuable information to a secure website for physicians to review.

Researchers will compare data related to the use of the CardioMEMS HF System in a commercial setting with data collected in a controlled clinical setting.
