WHAT IS EECP (ENHANCED EXTERNAL COUNTERPULSATION) TREATMENT?
Enhanced External Counter Pulsation (EECP), also known as Natural Bypass Therapy is a non-invasive FDA approved therapy for patients with angina (chest pain) and heart failure (low heart pumping). EECP is a non-surgical process in which large inflatable cuffs are tied over carves, thighs and buttocks region of the patient who is taking this treatment. At the time of diastole (heart’s relaxing time) these coughs are inflated and pushes the blood back to heart. It promotes coronary collateral growth so creating “Natural Bypass” and it improves blood circulation to heart muscles.
EECP is very helpful and effective treatment for the patients with blockages in heart arteries. EECP is advised to those patients who cannot undergo Bypass Surgery or Angioplasty or do not want any surgical treatment. After the EECP treatment of a patient is done, it naturally creates the collateral circulation and increases the blood flow in the coronary arteries and patient doesn’t require any surgical treatment.
