EECP May Help Reduce Painful Symptoms of Angina
Enhanced external counterpulsation is helping patients by creating new pathways for blood and relieving angina.
If you struggle with angina, the chest pain caused by narrowed arteries, and youíve exhausted standard treatments such as stenting, you may be a candidate for a therapy that is becoming increasingly popular. Itís called enhanced external counterpulsation (EECP), an outpatient procedure designed to stimulate blood flow through smaller branches of blood vessels known as collaterals. The goal is to create natural bypasses around arteries that are blocked or significantly narrowed.
