ECP Therapy Research
ECP Therapy is a non-surgical treatment that can reduce the debilitating symptoms of stable angina. Extensive research has demonstrated ECP technology as an effective tool to improve micro circulation and vasodilation in people suffering from the effects of heart disease, in particular stable angina. The European Society of Cardiology approved ECP technology and in 2013 upgraded its recommendation, stating that the treatment should be offered to individuals in who heart bypass surgery or stents are not possible or appropriate. The treatment is for those diagnosed with heart disease and angina, whose condition has not improved with medication, and who are unable to undergo surgery or wish to try a non-invasive alternative to standard treatment options.
