According to recent statistics from the American Heart Association, Heart Failure (HF) affects 5.7 million Americans [1]. HF is characterized by the global dilation of the heart, which leads to an increase in ventricular volume and a reduction in pumping efficiency. Several treatment strategies have been investigated to combat the adverse remodeling that leads to the progression of HF [2,3]. These therapies include reshaping the heart by means of surgical intervention and implantation of medical devices.
