|20130123880||DETECTOR-BASED AORTIC STIMULATION - Apparatus is provided, including (1) an external device, configured for placement outside of a body of a subject and to sense a factor of the subject, and to generate a signal in response to the sensed factor, and (2) an implant, which comprises a wireless receiver for receiving the signal, and at least one electrode, the implant configured to drive the electrode to apply current to an aortic and/or vagal site of the subject in response to the signal.||05-16-2013|
|20110137370||THORACIC AORTA AND VAGUS NERVE STIMULATION - Apparatus and methods are provided, including an electrode that is placed in contact with an artery of a subject. A control unit drives the electrode to perform a function with respect to the artery, the function selected from the group consisting of: driving a current into the artery, and sensing an electrical parameter of the artery. A transmitter is placed in a vein of the subject that is in a vicinity of the artery, the transmitter being wiredly connected to the control unit. The control unit is configured to drive the electrode by wirelessly transmitting a signal via the transmitter. Other embodiments are also described.||06-09-2011|
|20100305392||THORACIC AORTA AND VAGUS NERVE STIMULATION - Apparatus and methods are described including identifying a subject as suffering from a condition selected from the group consisting of congestive heart failure, diastolic heart failure, and hypertension. In response to the identifying, an electrode is placed on a vagus nerve of the subject at a vagal site that is between (a) a vagal bifurcation with a thoracic cardiac branch of the subject, and (b) thoracic vagal branching into the esophageal plexus of the subject. The subject is treated by driving a current into the vagal site, via the electrode. Other embodiments are also described.||12-02-2010|
|20090198308||INTRA-AORTIC ELECTRICAL COUNTERPULSATION - In some embodiments of the present invention, apparatus is provided, including a sensing electrode configured to be implanted at a non-cardiac site in a vicinity of an aorta of a subject and to detect an electrical parameter of the aorta, and a control unit configured to receive the detected parameter and to generate an output in response to the detected parameter. Additional embodiments are also described.||08-06-2009|
