Enhanced External Counter Pulsation (EECP / ECP) is non-surgical remedy for Heart failure, angina, micro vascular disease and other conditions involving poor circulation. (EECP / ECP) is a mechanical way by which long inflatable cuffs (like blood pressure cuffs) are wrapped around both of the patient's legs. EECP / ECP have two potentially beneficial actions on the heart.
Mainly EECP used to pump blood into the coronary arteries. Secondly, heart begins to beat by its deflating action so EECP creates sudden vacuum in the arteries. The EECP pumping console rapidly inflates and deflates the leg cuffs in synchrony with every single beat of the heart.
Randhawa Hospital is the first Hospital in India to introduce EECP(ECP) as a first line treatment of Coronary artery disease. EECP is available for treating angina in all leading hospitals of the world, including Mayo Clinic, Cleveland Clinic, Stony Brooks USA and Escort Heart Hospital in Delhi.
EECP (ECP), developed by Vasomedical, Inc., tested in multi-center, controlled, clinical studies, with positive medical results and demonstrated quality of life improvement. Increasing your life's rhythm is the heart of EECP (ECP). And with Medicare's coverage (not in India as yet), there's one more good reason to opt for this.
EECP (ECP) is entirely non-invasive (involves no needles or drugs, surgery), carries no risk, painless, comfortable, and administered in one hour sessions. In fact, EECP (ECP) can feel like a deep muscle massage to the legs and the patient is completely relaxed during the process.
It has a 90% success rate and 0% completion rate interleaving angina and symptoms of heart failure.
Nearly everyone with coronary artery disease can benefit from EECP(ECP). EECP(ECP) is particularly well-suited to people who:
Angina pectoris literally means, ‘strangling in the chest’. It is the most common symptoms of coronary artery disease.
