What is EECP?

EECP Treatment (Enhanced External Counterpulsation) is a safe, non-invasive treatment option that is highly effective for patients having heart diseases.

Asset 1

EECP (Enhanced External Counterpulsation) is a non-invasive treatment for patients suffering from chronic angina and heart failure. It involves the use of inflatable cuffs that are placed around the legs, which are then inflated and deflated in a specific pattern. This process creates a wave-like effect that increases blood flow to the heart, promoting the growth of new blood vessels.

During an EECP session, a patient lies down on a comfortable bed, and the cuffs are wrapped around their legs. The cuffs are then inflated and deflated in a timed sequence with the patient’s heartbeat. The process is painless and typically takes about an hour per session. Typically, patients undergo a total of 35 treatment sessions over a period of seven weeks.

The benefits of EECP treatment are numerous as below
  1. Creates New Blood Vessels (Collaterals)
  2. Increase Cardiac Output
  3. Decreases angina (Chest Pain)
  4. Enchance Blood Circulation
  5. Improve Organ Function

EECP treatment for heart blockage is a safe and effective non-invasive therapy that can improve blood flow to the heart, reduce chest pain, and other symptoms associated with heart blockage, without the need for incisions, anesthesia or known side effects.

EECP treatment success rate is impressively high, with studies reporting an average success rate of approximately 80-85% in reducing angina symptoms and 50-60% in improving symptoms in patients with heart failure.

Frequently Asked Question about EECP Treatment

EECP (Enhanced External Counterpulsation) treatment is a non-invasive therapy that uses cuffs wrapped around the legs and inflated and deflated in sync with the patient’s heartbeat to increase blood flow to the heart and improve circulation throughout the body. The therapy works by compressing blood vessels in the legs during diastole, which helps to improve blood flow to the heart during systole, when the heart is pumping

EECP therapy is commonly used to treat angina, heart failure, and other cardiovascular conditions. It may also be used to improve exercise tolerance, reduce the need for medication, and improve quality of life in patients with these conditions.

Yes, EECP treatment is considered a safe and non-invasive therapy. However, as with any medical treatment, there may be potential risks and side effects. Patients should consult with their healthcare provider to determine if EECP treatment is appropriate for them.

An EECP treatment session typically lasts between 45 to 60 minutes, and patients usually receive treatment for five days a week over a course of several weeks. The total number of sessions needed may range from 35 to 45 sessions, depending on the individual patient and the condition being treated.


The potential benefits of EECP therapy include improved circulation, reduced symptoms of angina and heart failure, improved quality of life, and reduced need for medication.

The success rate of EECP treatment can vary depending on the individual patient and the condition being treated. However, studies have shown that EECP treatment can improve angina symptoms in approximately 70-80% of patients, and may also be effective in improving symptoms and quality of life for patients with heart failure and other cardiovascular conditions. The success rate may also vary based on factors such as the severity of the condition, the patient’s age and overall health, and other individual factors. Patients considering EECP treatment should discuss their specific case with our doctor. Schedule now.

EECP therapy may be recommended for individuals who are experiencing symptoms of angina, heart failure, or other cardiovascular conditions. Candidates for EECP therapy may include individuals who have:

  • Persistent angina despite medication
  • Reduced heart function
  • A history of heart attacks or heart surgery
  • Blocked arteries or other vascular diseases
  • Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD)
  • Peripheral artery disease (PAD)
  • Diabetes
  • High blood pressure
  • A sedentary lifestyle


Patients should consult with their healthcare provider to determine if EECP therapy is appropriate for them based on their individual medical history and current condition.
