Enhanced External Counterpulsation
EECP is a non-invasive procedure that can reduce the symptoms of angina and improve heart function. It benefits patients who have chronic angina but are not candidates for surgery or other invasive procedures. It also may benefit some individuals with heart failure. The treatment involves the application of pressure cuffs around the hips, thighs and calves and inflating these cuffs during the rest cycle of the heartbeat.
