      ). With advances in medical therapy, an aging population is surviving to advanced stages of heart failure. Even with increasing use of heart replacement strategies such as durable mechanical circulatory support and heart transplantion, there remains an unmet need for additional approaches to reduce morbidity and mortality due to heart failure.
