Effect of EECP :
Overall EECP helps cardiac patients by
– Reducing the work load of heart
– . Increasing blood flow to the heart
– Stimulate the effect of drugs and exercise and thereby slowing the progress of the cardiovascular disease.
Traditionally, all these benefits are provided by invasive procedure like bypass surgery and angioplasty, Now EECP can achieve them without undergoing the risk of surgery and risk of exercise in patients who have poor exercise tolerance due to cardiac symptoms. The clinical data supporting EECP therapy are gaining momentum in the past 5 years. There are more than 160 journals published in international reputed journals. In india EECP is seldom mentioned by physician as a option to treat heart patients out after visualizing the benefits of EECP treatment Dr. Abhijeet Aklujkar (Interventional Cardiologist) comes forward to serve his patients at his best.
EECP Beyond the Heart:
EECP treatment in India is successfully and inexpensively treating coronary disease. But now, Doctors are exploring the exciting possibility that this therapy could be used for so much more! It’s a given that as technology advances, newer, less invasive therapies evolve. But it is also a given that resistance to change is part of the human psyche. This is usually why new therapies don’t catch on quickly. One of the best example of this is that we have in-modern medicine today is that of a new therapy called EECP.
EECP IS AN OPTION FOR PATIENTS WITH NO OPTION
The famous terminology adopted is “EECP IS AN OPTION FOR PATIENTS WITH NO OPTION”. Even at this seemingly end stage, EECP therapy gives many benefits to the patients. The irony is that doctors still hesitate to provide or recommended EECP therapy during the initial phase of the disease. Ideally , treating cardiac disease should focus on just the patient’s cardiac health, but on restoring vascular health. We all know that a block in the blood vessels carrying blood supply, which in turn leads to heart attack and further complications. What we have not understood is that bock has been created by the dysfunction of the entire vascular system; it’s not just a malfunction in the vascular supply to the heart alone. If the patient has a poor vascular health, the chance of getting heart attack is high irrespective of how mild or severe the blockage are. That is why interventional treatment like bypass surgery and angioplasty which restore cardiac with regular exercise, risk factor modification and medication-which are all shown to restore the vascular health, Which is what EECP also does.
The buzz on EECP is taking on new dimensions. Doctors have been noticing that other aliments like diabetes, vascular erectile dysfunction, memory loss, stroke, diabetic retinopathy, minor complications of stroke and vascular dementia improved dramatically when their EECP patients were being treated for heart disorders. Theese unexpected improvements lead to further research on each of the above and the current conclusion is that EECP could definitely give many benefits in solving these disorders too.
EECP therapy & hypertension
As the body ages, the blood vessels get stiffer, and conditions like diabetes accelerate this stiffening. This means the heart is pumping blood into stiffer blood vessels, which means the pressure on the blood vessels are increasing. This condition is called hypertension. EECP therapy decreases blood vessel stiffening all through the body.
Ayurveda With EECP
“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. Hence this natural treatment will work synergistically with our Ayurvedic therapies to enhance health without adverse side effects.”

Documented : More than 160 research article are published worldwide supporting EECP. These articles prove EECP relieves the patient from chest pain & shortness of breath in cardiac patients. It also decreases the dependence on medication and improves the overall quality of life. The benefits last up to five years.
EECP has been proven to
• Improve blood flow to the heart

Available : EECP is practised in major hospitals worldwide, including India. The physician is bound to tell the patient all options for managing the patient’s disease and to have an unbiased dialogue with patients.

When We have a treatment which has nothing negative about it and has shown amazing clinical benefits. It’s shocking to note that it’s still sparsely used.
EECP Treatment in Mumbai is Enhanced external counter pulsation. It is a treatment which is done for angina and heart failure. It lowers the indication of ischemia, and increase the efficient capability and quality of the patient’s life.
What is EECP treatment?
It is a non persistent process which uses inflatable cuffs to squash the blood vessels of the limb which is in the lower side. This cuffs are positioned close to carves, thighs and buttocks of the person who is taking this treatment. After this procedure the blood flow in the coronary arteries gets increased. EECP Treatment in Mirraroad takes places by computer technology, blood pressure monitors and electro cardiograph. This helps in exact timing of the rise and deflation of the cuffs with beats of the heart and blood pressure.
Our EECP Treatment in India is proven to give patients following benefits:-
