In a cardiomyoplasty system, a rate responsive implantable device is disclosed which controls the stimulation of both the heart and a myoplasty muscle. The metabolic demand is used as a rate response parameter and one or both of the heart and the muscle stimulation are increased with metabolic deman ...

A pacemaker or similar cardiac and cardiomyoplasty muscle stimulator is provided which during a training period of said muscle, defining alternating training and augmentation phases. During training phases training pulses are provided for the muscle until the muscle is capable of performing cardiac ...
