Title (EN) ELECTRICAL MUSCLE CONTROLLER
(FR) DISPOSITIF DE REGULATION ELECTRIQUE D'UN MUSCLE
Abstract:
(EN) This invention is a method of modifying the force of contraction of at least a portion of a heart chamber, including providing a subject having a heart (30), comprising at least a portion having an activation; and applying a non-excitatory electric field (37) having a given duration at a delay after the activation to the portion, which causes the force of contraction to be increased by at least 5 percent.
(FR) Méthode de modification de la force de contraction d'une partie au moins d'une cavité du coeur. Chez un patient dont le coeur (30) comprend au moins une partie présentant une activation, un champ électrique non excitant (37) d'une durée donnée est appliquée à cette partie un certain laps de temps après l'activation, ce qui a pour effet d'accroître d'au moins 5 % la force de contraction.
