Confirmation Trial of the Acorn CorCap Cardiac Support Device (CSD) at the Same Time as Mitral Valve Repair


Clinical Evaluation of Acorn CorCap Cardiac Support Device Concomitant to MVR - A Confirmatory Trial




The purpose of this study to evaluate patients when they have an Acorn CorCapTM Cardiac Support Device (CSD) placed around their heart for the treatment of heart failure at the same time as their mitral valve surgery. The CorCapTM CSD is intended to support the heart, potentially preventing further dilation that is associated with progressive heart failure, thereby potentially preserving or improving heart function.
