Abstract:
An example electrical stimulation system for use in combination with a non-pulsatile or low-pulsatile ventricular assist device and for restoration of autonomic balance by stimulating at least one nerve. The system includes a stimulation source including a controller configured to control delivery of electrical stimulation at a stimulation rate modeled to simulate a baroreceptor discharge related to an intrinsic heart rate, a lead operably coupled to the stimulation source, and at least one electrode operably coupled to the lead, wherein the at least one electrode is positionable in contact with or adjacent to the at least one nerve.
