An apparatus and method can receive wireless energy using a wireless electrostimulation electrode assembly. In certain examples, at least some of the received wireless energy can be delivered as an electrostimulation to a heart. In certain examples, the wireless electrostimulation electrode can be mechanically supported at least partially using a ring formed by an annulus of a mitral valve of the heart. In certain examples, the wireless electrostimulation electrode assembly can be configured to be intravascularly delivered to an implant location within a chamber of the heart at the annulus of the mitral valve of the heart, and can fit entirely within the heart.
