What are the benefits or advantages of EECP over heart surgery?

The distinct advantages of EECP over bypass surgery and angioplasty is

  • EECP treatment covers the well-being of the whole heart and unlike surgery, is not a ‘localized’ procedure. Thus overall holistic benefits are more.
  • There is no hospitalization, as the procedure is an outpatient procedure.
  • There is no risk of infection as the procedure is non-invasive.
  • There is no bleeding or risk of blood clots.
  • There is no downtime. It is simply a walk-in and walk-out procedure/session every time.
  • There is no anesthesia administered for EECP procedures. EECP is completely painless.
  • EECP has no adverse side effects. EECP does not affect other parts or organs of the body.
  • There is no risk of complications in EECP, as it is an external procedure performed by mechanical means.
  • There is no need to take any additional or separate medication for EECP.
  • The benefits of EECP have been scientifically proved and well documented, worldwide.
  • In EECP, there is no recuperation time.
  • While promising similar relief, EECP procedures are much more cost effective, when compared to normal operations.

It is a well-known fact that heart surgeries require delicate precision and can be technically challenging. Hence, the risk of complications is more. Further, extensive preparation is required for a by-pass surgeries and balloon angioplasty. Even the post recovery period is fraught with lot of ‘DOs and Don’Ts’. All these can be totally avoided when EECP procedures are undertaken.

Please note that EECP is not considered a replacement for coronary artery bypass surgery or balloon angioplasty. EECP may delay the need for these invasive procedures. In many cases, relief will be sufficient to render them unnecessary. EECP is also used in patients who have already undergone surgery or angioplasty but not getting sufficient relief of their symptoms
