So far, the development of devices to provide neuromodulation for patients with advanced systolic heart failure has yielded only one promising therapy. The delivery of BAROSTIM activation therapy (BAT) to the carotid body has been shown to improve the functional capacity of patients with advanced HFrEF. It will be interesting to see how BAT technology evolves over the next few years.
