Solve CRT (NCT02922036)

Stimulation Of the Left Ventricular Endocardium for Cardiac Resynchronization Therapy in Non-Responders and Previously Untreatable Patients (SOLVE CRT)

This study is a prospective, multi-center, randomized, controlled, double blinded, pivotal trial to study the safety and efficacy of the WiSE-CRT System for Cardiac Re-synchronization Therapy.  The WiSE-CRT System is an implantable cardiac pacing system capable of delivering pacing energy to the left ventricle of the heart without using a pacing lead.
