EECP Therapy in Pakistan. Today here we talk about what is EECP therapy and for what purpose it is used. EECP stands for Enhanced External Counter Pulsation and it is actually a non-invasive treatment to lower the number and intensity of angina pectoris, by increasing coronary blood flow in areas of the heart that require blood flow.
In simple words the EECP Therapy is the alternative of bypass surgery. The EECP Therapy treatment is controlled through three pairs of external inflatable cuffs that are applied around the lower legs, upper legs and buttocks. This raises blood flow, eradicates the symptoms of ischemia and reduces the need for anti-anginal medications in the majority of patients.
Does EECP Therapy Effective?
A number of studies have shown that the EECP therapy can be fairly useful in treating chronic stable angina.
However, several studies have suggested that the improvement in symptoms following a course of EECP therapy treatment appears to keep on for up to five years (although 1 in 5 patients may need another course of EECP to sustain their progress).
