Summary

The Revivent TC System study is being conducted to test an investigational device that can repair a Left Ventricular Aneurysm without the use of a heart-lung machine, or opening the chest/heart chamber. The device works by placing a tuck in the heart where there is scar, which has the effect of shortening the distance across the heart and decreasing the tension, or stress, on the working heart muscle. The device consists of several implants, called anchors. The anchors are placed during a surgery in which your doctors will access your heart by placing a guide wire through a vein in your neck into your heart and also through an incision in your chest wall between your ribs on your left side. The anchors will help reshape your heart muscle by tucking in the scarred area. It is expected that the total study duration will be approximately 6 years, consisting of 1 year of patient enrollment and 5 years of patient follow-up.
