Benefits of EECP®

There are several mechanisms of action believed to explain the extensive benefit from EECP® . One of the main results is collateral recruitment, or the widening and creation of small blood vessels in the heart muscle. These new vessels improve the flow of healthy, oxygenated blood to the heart. Amazingly these small “collateral” blood vessels will create natural bypasses around narrowed or blocked arteries. In short the heart has more nutrients and therefore more energy than before. Look at the pictures below of an actual nuclear perfusion study:

Not only can you see the difference – you can feel it. Patients report:

  • Increases energy and stamina
  • Reduces or eliminates angina
  • Returns patients to activities they thought they had given up forever
  • Ability to rest and sleep better

Aside from its physical benefits EECP® is:

• The only non-invasive treatment for coronary artery disease, congestive heart failure, and angina
• EECP® does not have any of the risks or recovery time associated with surgery.
• FDA approved in 1995, Medicare approved in 1999, and covered by all major insurance companies
