Key inclusion criteria
1. Is ambulatory, able and willing to comply with the study protocol and has provided
written informed consent

2. Age = 18

3. Trans-septal catheterization is determined to be feasible by the treating physician

4. NYHA class II-IV heart failure of any etiology

5. Symptomatic with MR grade = 2+

6. LVEF =20% = 50%

7. LVEDD > 50 mm and = 70 mm

8. No anticipated change in patient's cardiac medication regimen anticipated throughout
the course of the study.

Can healthy volunteers participate?
Key exclusion criteria
1. In the opinion of the Investigator, the femoral vein and internal jugular vein cannot
accommodate a 16 F catheter or the presence of an inferior vena cava (IVC) filter
would interfere with advancement of the catheter or ipsilateral DVT is present

2. Significant structural abnormality of the mitral valve (e.g., flail, prolapse, leaflet

3. Significant mitral annular calcification

4. Hemodynamic instability (systolic pressure < 90 mmHg without afterload reduction or
cardiogenic shock or the need for inotropic support or intra-aortic balloon pump)

5. Prior mitral valve surgery or valvuloplasty or any currently implanted prosthetic
valve or VAD

6. History of, or active, rheumatic heart disease

7. History of Atrial Septal Defects (ASD), whether repaired or not

8. History of previously repaired PFO or PFO associated with clinical symptoms (e.g.,
cerebral ischemia) within 6 months of the planned investigational procedure

9. In the opinion of the investigator, an atrial septal aneurysm is present that may
interfere with transseptal crossing

10. Biventricular pacing initiated or anticipated within 6 months of the planned
investigational procedure
