CASE SUMMARY NASEEB KAUR 65yrs

This 65 yr old lady suffered chest pain since last 4 yrs and also had high BP. She did not want to undergo Angiography to diagnose her heart problem because she was afraid of all the pipes and catheters going in and out of her body. We did blood tests, ECHO and TMT and diagnosed severe CAD –heart disease. She started on EECP on 23 Jan 2007 and was completely relieved of her chest pain.Her BP was also controlled and she lost 13Kg weight in the next four months. Her arthritis improved tremendously and she can now walk 1Km without any problems. She was treated without the need for Angiography

Mr HUKUM CHAND aged 76yrs

Had difficulty in walking since 5 months. He tried all medications but got no relief. On ECHO test we found that his EF (ejection fraction) was only 16% which is very dangerous level. He was declared unfit for Bypass Surgery or Stents. We started him on EECP+AMT and he completed the course on 20thMay 2008.

Today 4 yrs later he is in good health and his EF is 40%. So patients who are unfit for Bypass Surgery can also benefit from EECP+AMT.

HARBANS SINGH - Pathankot

This 56 year old Divisional Manager forest development corporation at Chamba HP,is an old case of Diabetes and high Blood pressure.On 9th Feb 2009 he developed severe chest pain and Angiography revealed severe Triple vessel disease.Blood tests also showed that due to Diabetes his kidneys had become very weak and his Urea was 160 (normal 20-40) and Creatinine was 3.5 (normal 0.6-1.2).He was advised immediate Bypass Surgery.But he was also advised by other doctors that with a damaged kidney his chances of death were very high and there was a 50% chance of further damage to his kidney needing dialysis for life.His EF was 35% which was another risk factor.With this information in mind he refused Bypass surgery and came to us for EECP+AMT.

We explained to him that there was a zero % chance of complications with our procedure and that his kidney would also benefit from EECP.We started treatment on 25 Feb 2009 and completed 35 one hour sessions.

His chest pain completely disappeared and he no longer had any shortness of breath.His urine flow returned to normal.What was really satisfying was that his kidney function improved beyond expectations.His Urea was 43 and Creatinene 1.3,both near normal.One month ago no doctor had given him even a remote chance of his kidney ever recovering normal function.His EF improved from 38% to 50% and he could now walk 2Km daily.

Dr Randhawa says We do not do EECP+AMT for renal failure alone.But patients of CAD who are unfit for CABG due to renal impairment have done very well and their kidney function has improved beyond all medical expectations.It is due to increased blood flow within the kidney tissues due to ECP.

Dr Y.R. Khanna

Meet Dr YR Khanna 68yr old MBBS general practicioner and a retd Army Captain.He has to be a fore runner for the fighter of the decade award.Here is his fight to conquer CAD. He has the unfortunate distinction of having to undergone angiography eight times.

He first had angina in 1991.He went to Batra Hospital Delhi and an angiogram showed multiple blockages in his coronary arteries.They did ballooning at two places but did not put in stents as was the practice at that time.His relief was short lived and within a year angina had recurred in a big way.He got an angiogram repeated at All India Institute of Medical Sciences at New Delhi which showed that all the ballooned arteries had got blocked again.He then underwent a triple Bypass Surgery.The result was good and he remained free of pain for ten years.

Recurrance of angina in 2003 made him consider all options including EECP.All physicians and cardiologists he consulted during the next two years dissuaded him from undergoing EECP.Some were completely ignorant;others downright critical about the procedure. The result was that in the next three years he had six stents placed in him in four of India's best hospitals with almost NO RELEIF AT ALL! And during this time he had spent a princely sum of Rs Fifteen lacs.

In Feb 2008 after he had two DES stents placed in him without any relief at all, he revisited all the hospitals where he had had stents placed in him.They all said that there was NOTHING they could do for him now and he should remain on medical treatment for the rest of his life.But life was unbearable on medical treatment alone.He had severe angina after every meal.He had angina while walking to the bathroom.He had severe chest pain and choking in the throat even while changing his clothes.He had not attended his clinic since the last one week.Against all cardiologists advise he came to us for EECP treatment.

Surprisingly he was on INADEQUATE medical treatment as evidenced by the numerous prescription chits he carried from all the top Hospitals in India. So the first thing we did was to start AMT or Aggressive Medical Treatment.This included full dose Statins,adequate beta blocade,addition of cardiac metabolic drugs,ACEIs,zero fat diet amongst others. On about the fourth day he had sufficient relief of angina to start attending his clinic.On the 10th day he walked up a flight of stairs without chest pain.On the 35th day he was walking 1000 meters twice a day with tremendous improvement in QOL(quality of life), and complete disappearance of accompanying depression.

Today two months after completing his EECP course he says he never felt so good in the last 10 years.He has increased his walking to 1500 meters in the morning and evening.

This lady had a history of HT-high blood pressure since 10years and DM-diabetes mellitus since 7years.Since last two years she started getting chest pain and breathlessness on exertion and later even at rest.

She got her angiography done at Escorts Hospital Amritsar on 12th April 2008,which revealed all three arteries blocked at SIX different places from 70% to 90%.

(RCA Proximal 90%, mid 80%. LAD prox 70%, mid 70%. LCX prox 90%, PDA prox 80%. Impression : Triple Vessel Disease, advised CABG).

Her EF was 45%.She was advised immediate Bypass surgery.Now this patient had a very bad experience with two earlier surgeries (Hystrectomy and subsequent incisional hernia repair) due to her diabetes.She had repeated wound infection,delayed healing and prolonged recovery.In view of this she refused Bypass Surgery .

On 2nd June 2008 she opted for ECP+AMT as it was completely safe for a diabetic and noninvasive.She went through the procedure smoothly and had complete relief of pain and breathlessness.Today she is back to her normal life.

This 44yr old housewife is an old case of severe Hypertension(high BP)since 10years.In 2003 she started getting chest pain on exertion.This gradually worsened inspite of treatment.In Jan 2004 during peak winters in Amritsar when temperatures drop to Zero degrees,she got severe chest pain with sweating and a sense of impending death.She was admitted to a local hospital and diagnosed as Unstable Angina and severe hypertension BP 210/110.She was advised Coronary angiography which she refused.Chest pain got from bad to worse.She stopped socialising and had to discontinue her kitty parties.So much so she could not even walk to the kitchen due to severe chest pain.At the age of 40 she was practically bedridden. It was then that she decided to try out EECP which was new in Amritsar at that time.She completed the course of 35 one hour sittings along with Aggressive medical treatment.There was a dramatic transformation in her life.It was difficult for her to believe that the pain which was her constant companion for two years was no longer present.

She is now an active socialite and leads a happy life with her businessman husband and two wonderful sons.She also actively advocates EECP to all heart patients. I must give back something to the procedure which has given me a new - LIFE WITHOUT PAIN.

This 72 year old ex serviceman had severe chest pain on minimal exertion in September 2006.In Dec 2007 he suffered a major heart attack.On 31.Jan 2007 he got angiography done at Escorts Hospital Amritsar,which revealed blockages in the three arteries ranging from 60% to 100% in four different places.His heart functioning was affected and his EF was only 45%.He was advised immediate Bypass Surgery.His surgery would have been done free of cost-being an ex army man-even then he refused to undergo the risk in view of his age.

Instead, he opted for the much safer EECP+AMT course at Randhawa Hospital Amritsar. We started his treatment on 10th Feb 2007 and he successfully completed 35 one hour sessions of ECP.His pain disappeared,chest felt very light and he started walking after an almost bedridden condition of 4 months.

Today on 5th Sept 2008, 18months later he is completely pain free and walks at a brisk pace for ONE HOUR.Truly remarkable!!

Conclusion:
In this case a 72 year old with triple vessel disease needing IMMEDIATE surgery 18 months ago,is completely painfree and has not needed a second course of EECP till date.If this is not avoiding Bypass Surgery what is?

Mr Yash Pal kapoor a frail bedridden 78 yr old came to us with multiple diseases like Diabetes Mellitus, Bilateral Pleural effusion, Parkinsonism, Septic Arthritis, BHP in addition to CAD (Coronary Artery Disease), CCF( Congestive Cardiac Failure-Last stage). He had undergone CABG(Bypass Surgery) in 1991 and had been having symptoms since last 5yrs. He had now reached a stage where no surgeon would touch him and no medicine would work on him. He was getting 100mg of FRUSEMIDE and 300mg of SPIRONOLACTONE per day (in addition to 16 other pills) and even then he was breathless in bed.

On 16Sept 2005 ,14 days after starting EECP(ECP) his EF had improved to 28%.(An improvement of 65%; 28-17=11;11/17=65%).

So EECP(ECP) is THE ONLY modality of treatment to improve EF- Ejection Fraction in a patient with failed Bypass Surgery who now has disabling Cardiac Failure. Patients who are not yet disabled by Cardiac Failure (say EF of 30 to 50%) may take EECP(ECP) so as to pre empt and delay onset of Cardiac Failure. In all these patients EECP(ECP) definately improves the quality of life and avoids repeated Bypass Surgery.

Balwant Singh a 65yr old farmer of village Buttar distt Moga, had severe chest pain on walking even 10meters. His weight was 88kg and BP was 180/110. He went to Hero DMC heart hospital where they did an coronary angiogram and told him that he had 100% blockage in two arteries and 90% blockage in the third. Effectively he had only 10% blood flowing in one of the three arteries supplying blood to the heart.

The doctors told him that bypass surgery was the only way out or else he could die any moment. Like any one of us he was afraid of surgery and all its complications including death on the table. He started treatment on 7th Jan 2004 and took 35 sittings of ECP lasting 1 hr each.He was also given advanced medical treatment to open up his blocked arteries. He was started on special weight reducing diet.

Suresh Khurana

Suresh Khurrana a 49 yr old businessman from 135-Green Avenue, Amritsar, who suffered two major heart attacks in April 2004 and Oct 2004. He was advised bed rest at home since last two months. He had chest pain even while walking to the toilet and one night he had severe difficulty in breathing. He was shifted to the ICU and advised immediate Angiography followed by Bypass surgery. Since he did not want to undergo bypass surgery he did not see the point to undergo the pain and trauma of Angiography just" to see whats wrong".

On 13 Oct 2004 his echocardiography report showed an ejection fraction of just 26% (normal 55-75%), indicating severe myocardial damage and dysfunction. Two different cardiologists opined that the only way out was bypass surgery. He chose EECP(ECP) and started treatment on 8th Nov 2004 and within 7days he was walking 200 meters without pain. After 15 days he had started walking one Km twice a day. At the end of 35 one hour sittings Mr Khurrana could walk 3 Kms twice a day. So Angiography is not a prerequisite for EECP(ECP). Those who chose the non invasive path can go for EECP(ECP) without any traumatic procedures like Angiography.

Govardhan Das a businessman from Masit wali gali, Batala came to us with history of rapidly worsening angina and breathlessness since last 2yrs.He used to take 6 sorbitrate tablets daily, while going for urine, stool, bath and while changing clothes Angiography done at Tagore hospital on 13/07/05 showed all three arteries blocked with an EF of just 28%.Diagnosis Triple vessel disease with severe LV Dysfunction. He refused Bypass Surgery and we started him on EECP(ECP) and AMT on31/08/2005.

After he completed 35 one hour sittings he did not have any chest pain or difficulty in breathing. He did not need sorbitrate tablets from after the seventh day of treatment onwards. His EF ejection fraction had improved to 55%. I think we have successfully avoided Bypass Surgery says Mr Govardhan Das.
