UPMC has been selected as a center for the REDUCE LAP-HF II Clinical Study, a prospective, multicenter, pre-market randomized controlled (1:1), blinded study to evaluate the IASD to reduce elevated left atrial pressure in patients with HFpEF.
The goal of the Corvia Medical InterAtrial Shunt Device (IASD®) System II is to improve quality of life and reduce heart failure-related symptoms and events in patients with heart failure with preserved (HFpEF) or mid-range ejection fraction (HFmrEF) with elevated left atrial pressures, and who remain symptomatic despite standard GDMT.
The InterAtrial Shunt Device (IASD) System II is the world’s first transcatheter device designed to treat HFpEF. Our interventionalist will create a small opening in the atrial septum and deploy the device. This will form a passage between the left and right atria that enables the left atrium to decompress with the aim of lowering left atrial pressure. The goal is to improve heart failure symptoms and quality of life, decrease heart failure hospitalization rates, and reduce the overall cost burden of managing heart failure patients.
Potential candidates for REDUCE LAP-HF II must meet the following primary inclusion criteria:
