Cardiac contractility modulation (CCM) is a novel device-based therapy used in patients with HFrEF. CCM therapy is associated with an improvement in exercise tolerance, increased quality of life, reduced HF hospitalizations, and reverse remodelling of the left ventricle in patients with HFrEF. In this case, we report the clinical benefit of CCM in an older patient with advanced HFrEF due to ischemic dilated cardiomyopathy with frequent heart failure-related hospitalizations and poor quality of life despite optimal medical therapy.
