FAQ
How is ECP done?
 
For ECPpatient wears a series of pressure cuffs (like large blood pressure cuffs) around the legs and lies on a bed. The cuffs inflate and deflate electronically synchronized with the heart beat (ECG) and move the the blood from the legs toward the heart. The increased blood flow is delivered to the heart’s blood vessels at the precise moment it is relaxing i.e. during diastole when blood flow through the coronary vessels is at its peak. When done repeatedly thisincreases collateral circulation thus creating bypass naturally without surgery.
 
What does ECP do?
 
ECPcauses immediate and sustained increase in heart's blood supply by:
Dilating coronary blood vessels 
Opening dormant collaterals 
Creating new blood vessels (angiogenesis)
 
How does the patient know he has improved?
 
Patients feel better and they test better. Patients require less medication, have less frequency and intensity of chest pain and discomfort, breath better and can walk longer distance and faster. Improvement can be confirmed with CCG / and Stress Thallium tests. They have better exercise tolerance, improvement in quality of life and can lead a more active life.
 
Will Angiography, Cardiovascular Cartography and Stress Thallium show the improvement?
 
Improvement with ECP can be assessed with Cardiovascular Cartography (CCO) or Stress Thallium as they document the blood flow. Please note that blood flow is not proportionate to the degree of stenosisin blood vessels as is usually presumed. Angiography assesses the patency and stenosis in three big blood vessels and their major branches but is not suitable for visualizing the millions of smaller blood vessels and capillaries. Angiography also does not assess the blood flow to the heart muscle.
 
What are the advantages of ECP?
 
ECP is non-invasiev, simple, safe and effective treatment without anesthesia, surgery, wires or stents.
ECP means successfully fighting Heart Disease.
Upto 90% patients improve. Most feel better in 15 to 20 hours treatment. ECP benefits last 3 to 7 years or more. ECP is so successful that in USA insurance reimbursement for ECP has gone up by 6 % whereas that for other procedures like angioplasty, bypass surgery etc. has decreased by 7%.
 
Are the treatments safe and comfortable?
 
Yes, They are safe and comfortable. patients can listen to music or see television during the treatment. Some patients even sleep during the treatment.
