• Enhanced External Counterpulsation (EECP) for Angina


    Generally, enhanced external counterpulsation (EECP) is used to treat angina in patients who continue to have chest pain or discomfort even after treatment with medications and angioplasty and stenting. It is also used to treat patients with blood flow problems in blood vessels too small to treat with other procedures.

    EECP is a non-invasive procedure that increases blood flow to the heart by using inflatable cuffs on the legs to push blood back to the heart in between beats. Treatment takes one or two hours per daily session for about 7 weeks.
