Heart failure is a serious condition in which the heart is unable to pump enough blood to meet the body’s needs – causing fatigue, shortness of breath and swelling in the legs and ankles. For some, their heart failure causes the heart to beat out of sync, reducing the amount of blood pumped with each heartbeat. Cardiac Resynchronization Therapy (CRT) may be beneficial in these cases to improve the heart’s rhythm and improve symptoms.
However, traditional CRT does not work for everyone. In fact, 3 out of 1o patients who receive a CRT device don’t benefit from treatment, and 2 out of every 10 patients will have issues related to the wires in these devices. If you still struggle with heart failure symptoms despite having a pacemaker, ICD or CRT device, you may qualify for SOLVE CRT Clinical Study. The study is for the WiSE CRT System, an investigational, wireless device designed to overcome the limitations of traditional CRT devices.
