Hope is Here – A Modern Approach to Heart Failure Therapy


This live online webinar is an educational program designed to share the latest updates on a breakthrough device-based therapy for the treatment of moderate to severe heart failure. While cardiac contractility modulation using the Optimizer® device has been well-studied, published and widely available in Europe for a number of years, it was only recently approved in the US. The use of CCM® therapy continues to expand rapidly – which makes now a perfect time to bring the world's most experienced investigators and providers with extensive clinical experience together to discuss the current and future place CCM® may take in the treatment of heart failure.
