Summary
Brief summary
This pilot study will evaluate the efficacy and safety of CCM therapy in heart failure
patients with baseline EF=50% (HFpEF) who have New York Heart Association (NYHA) Class II or
III symptoms despite appropriate medication.

The terminology of the HF classification HFpEF is based on the 2016 European Society of
Cardiology (ESC) Heart Failure Guidelines.
