Enhanced External Counterpulsation (EECP) Therapy
EECP is a safe, non-invasive, outpatient treatment option for patients suffering from ischemic heart diseases such as angina and heart failure. Patients all over the world have benefited from EECP therapy with a potential reduction in the need of medications, an increase in exercise tolerance and improvement in the quality of life.
In a 3-year follow-up study of patients who had both symptom relief and improved myocardial perfusion after a course of EECP, 80% were shown to have preserved these benefits.
How does external counterpulsation works?
Therapy sessions are 1 hour long ideally completed within 2 months. Thirty-five sessions have been shown to have the biggest impact on cardiovascular outcomes. Pneumatic cuffs (similar to blood pressure cuffs) wrapped around patients’ lower legs and buttocks are inflated and deflated during the cardiac cycle to force blood flow through the heart. As the heart accommodates extra blood flow, new arteries are created to improve cardiac output and coronary perfusion (angiogenesis), as well as improve artery wall function.
Benefits of external counterpulsation
External Counterpulsation (ECP) therapy can have systemic effects that are, it can benefit the whole body. The primary reasons for therapy are:
- ECP helps heart function.
- ECP helps artery function.
- ECP grows new arteries (angiogenesis) to increase blood flow and create a natural bypass in the heart.
Risk of external counterpulsation
Your heart and your safety is our number one priority. Although External Counterpulsation has minimal risks, it may not be for everyone. Lavmorenzo Centre does a thorough cardiac assessment with ECG and diagnostic testing before treatment initiation. We have a process to ensure 100% safety.
