INTRODUCTION TO EECP / ECP THERAPY:
EECP I ECP (External Counter Pulsation) is a non-invasive treatment for coronary artery disease. ECP is the first non-surgical, non-pharmaceutical and mechanical complimentary treatment approved by US FDA as a class II device for Chronic Stable Angina that is refractory to optimal antianginal medical therapy & without options for revacularisation. ECP essentially is a heart therapy without the side-effects of heart surgery.
Some also calls it "NATURAL BYPASS THERAPY"
THE NEED FOR NEW OPTIONS:
Despite optimal medical therapy and invasive procedures, such as angioplasty and coronary bypass surgery, many patients still experience angina, due to still diseased coronary artery & some have congestive heart failure
For such patients, FDA cleared ECP therapy has been demonstrated to provide save, effective and enduring therapeutic option. Almost 75 — 85% of patients based on age and comorbid conditions benefit from ECP therapy and typically experience angina free life.
What Is EECP Treatment / EECP Therapy
EECP, an acronym for Enhanced External Counter Pulsation, is a completely safe, non-pharmaceutical, non-invasive outpatient treatment for relieving and eliminating angina. EECP Treatment / EECP Therapy is painless, carries no risk and has no adverse side effects.
What and How is EECP THERAPY:
- Enhanced External Counter Pulsation(EECP)
- EECP therapy is the safest option for patients who are at high risk for Bypass surgery or Angioplasty..
- EECP is the only non surgical treatment which can improve collateral blood flow.
- NO PAIN, NO MEDICATION is required for the treatment.
- EECP is given daily 1 hour; total 35 sessions.
- EECP targets entire heart & improves overall heart condition.
- ECP is an EFFECTIVE option for those with no option.
- Even healthy individuals can take this therapy to further enhance cardiovascular functionality & stamina.
- We work in close technical collaboration with VSK medical systems.
- We deliver therapy which in "evidence based" on long term research study & various clinical trials.
EECP is Approved by Worlds Major Authorised Medical Organisations

Leaders Testimonials on EECP
EECP HUGE HOPE FOR HEART PATIENTS .“EECP is the first allopathic treatment which does not involve invasive procedure or medication but provides clinical improvement to cardiac patients in a natural way.
THE ONLY NON- SURGICAL WAY TO OVERCOME HEART DISEASE – HEAL YOUR HEART WITH EECP
Address to the 22nd world congress on interventional cardiology, he said…. ‘’in the 70’s bypass surgery was the big news in the treatment of coronary artery disease. In the 80’s it was balloon angioplasty. In the 90’s it was the stent and now in the 20th century we move a step further to a totally non-invasive treatment with EECP.
Doctor's Testimonials on EECP
I believe EECP Treatment has great potential in treating patient who doesn't want to go for surgery or with poor heart function, which makes surgery little more risky. All my patients who underwent the treatment have reported improvement in heart function and exercise capacity. I am happy to see them walking more distance without chest pain and has improved quality of life. To conclude I think Enhanced External Counter Pulsation is a valuable outpatient procedure, providing long-term relief of anginal symptoms and improved quality of life.
EECP is definitely a hope for patients with refractory angina, post CABG patients, Post PTCA patients where all the existing treatment modalities are tried. Also class III heart failure patients have symptomatic palliative relief and may improve quality of life to Class I. It need encouragement as patients also prefer Non-Invasive treatment options.
EECP is useful to treat patients with Refractory Angina, not suitable for revascularization procedures. I am convinced that EECP helps in patient with Heart failure. I believe that the patients should be given a chance to go for EECP treatment where there is no option in the above subset patients.
EECP is a good treatment for managing patients who are otherwise not amendable to Bypass Surgery or Intervention. This may be due to extensive diffuse coronary disease, co-morbidity or by choice.
I have seen many of my patients getting better and started doing 30-45 minutes moderate exercise. What’s surprising is they were not even able to walk 3 minutes due to their cardiac symptom before the treatment. I believe EECP had great potential in the management of patient with chronic stable Angina [chronic disease of coronary blockage]
EECP is a safe and effective treatment for patients who have diffused Coronary Artery Disease and are highly Symptomatic. This treatment modality can be safely used in patients with Refractive Angina and Heart Failure, as it has all the technology approvals like USFDA. The effect of the therapy is unique as it improves the myocardial blood flow without invasive procedures. Clinical data shows most of the patients undergoing this treatment are showing significant improvement in quality of life and are able to resume daily activities without angina and shortness of breath
EECP is a new modality of treatment used in patient with CAD to improve micro-vascular circulation. This treatment is being offered in our anti-heart failure program for the past 9 years and we have reported the findings in major clinical journals. The patient”s improvements are positive.
Scientific data shows that EECP treatment helps patients with Ischemic Heart Disease [IHD] by recruitment of collaterals and increase of blood flow to ischemic regions. It also improves endothelial functions and reduces arterial stiffness.
EECP is a non-invasive option to improve myocardial blood flow [in heart muscles]. The treatment has good utility in heart failure patients with poor quality of life[QOL]
EECP is a very useful modality of treatment approved by US - FDA for patients with Resistant Ischemia who are not candidates for any type of revacularization (CABG , PTCA) as well as end State Heart Failure Class II, III.EECP is a very useful modality of treatment approved by US - FDA for patients with Resistant Ischemia who are not candidates for any type of revacularization (CABG , PTCA) as well as end State Heart Failure Class II, III.
EECP is very unique because its mode of action is on the smaller vessels in the heart, which are too small to perform bypass surgery or angioplasty. The treatment works in areas of the blood circulation where Bypass surgery or Angioplasty cannot access. This suits well for Indian patients who are diabetic with smaller vessel diameter, diffusely diseased, and involving multiple vessels.
