Abstract

We assessed the feasibility of cardiac contractility modulation (CCM) by electric currents applied during the refractory period in patients with heart failure (HF). Extracellular electric currents modulating action potential and calcium transients have been shown to potentiate myocardial contractility in vitro and in animal models of chronic HF. CCM signals were biphasic square-wave pulses with adjustable amplitude, duration, and time delay from sensing of local electric activity. Signals were applied to the left ventricle through an epicardial vein (in 12 patients) or to the right ventricular (RV) aspect of the septum endocardially (in 6 patients). Simultaneous left ventricular (LV) and aortic pressure measurements were performed using a Millar catheter (Millar Instruments, Houston, Texas). Hemodynamics during RV temporary dual-chamber pacing was regarded as the control condition. Both LV and RV CCM stimulation increased dP/dtmax to a similar degree (9.1 ± 4.5% and 7.1 ± 0.8%, respectively; p max and a 17.0 ± 7.5% increase in pulse pressure compared with BVP alone (p
