- Selective stimulation of latissimus dorsi muscle for cardiac assistD R Thompson
Division of Cardiothoracic Surgery, Case Western Reserve University, Cleveland, OH, USA
Ann Biomed Eng 27:48-55. 1999..05). Selective activation of LDM is possible with little or no functional overlap; however, the muscle regions were nonuniform. Selective stimulation may ultimately facilitate the use of performance enhancing stimulus protocols for SMCA...
