ECP Treatment

What is "ECP" Treatment ("EECP" Treatment)?

"ECP" Treatment or "EECP" Treatment is an US FDA approved non-invasive treatment which increases the blood flow to the heart and opens new blood vessels, called collaterals. Acting as an alternate to bypass surgery and angioplasty, our ECP treatment (EECP treatment) is supervised by the Cardiologist, controlled by Singapore certified ECP Technicians and is monitored using an ECG machine. It is beneficial for patients with heart disease, high blood pressure, diabetes, kidney disease, high cholesterol, obesity, ischemic stroke and many other medical conditions.

Benefits of ECP Treatment (EECP Treatment)

  1. Creates new blood vessels: Alternate pathways or (collaterals), which open new channels for blood flow around the blocked arteries in the heart, are formed by ECP treatment. Thus, it creates natural bypasses in the heart.
  2. Leads to a stronger Heart: It increases blood flow to the heart, which enriches the blood with oxygen, strengthens the heart muscles and reduces the stiffness of arteries.
  3. Reduces angina: It reduces or eliminates chest pain (angina) and improves cardio-vascular fitness.
  4. Improves quality of life: It improves stamina, alertness and energy levels, and reduces the heart work load.
  5. Enhances blood circulation: It improves blood circulation in the heart and to the body, including organs like lungs, kidneys, brain, liver, etc.
  6. Improves organ function: It increases the flow of oxygen and nutrients, increases the heart output and the functioning of all the body organs.

ECP Treatment or EECP Treatment FAQs

What is ECP Treatment or EECP Treatment (External counterpulsation)?

ECP Treatment or EECP Therapy uses Renew ECP, which is a US FDA approved non-invasive treatment for patients with heart disease (single or multi-vessel), recurrent symptoms even after surgical treatment, congestive heart failure and for those prone to other heart ailments. In addition, it is intended for use in healthy patients to provide improvement in vasodilation, increased VO2 and increased blood flow. The Renew NCP-5 device is the only one in the world, approved by the US FDA for healthy patients.

How does ECP Treatment or EECP Treatment work?

ECP Treatment or EECP Treatment gently but firmly compresses the blood vessels in the lower limbs to increase blood flow to your heart. Each wave of pressure is electronically timed to the heartbeat, so that the increased blood flow is delivered to your heart at the precise moment when it is relaxing. When the heart pumps again, pressure is released instantaneously. This lowers the resistance in blood vessels of legs so that the blood may be pumped more easily from your heart. ECP may encourage blood vessels to open small channels which become extra branches. These channels or collaterals may eventually become "Natural Bypass" vessels to provide blood flow to the heart muscle, contributing to the relief of angina symptoms.

  • Patients who are heavily dependent on medications or have to cut down their activities in order to relieve angina.
  • Patients who are contraindicated for bypass or angioplasty due to kidney failure, liver failure, severe COPD cases, diffuse diabetes disease, very old age, patients of syndrome X, ischemic and dilated cardiomyopathy
  • Healthy individuals to improve arterial heath and stamina.

How is the ECP Treatment or EECP Heart Treatment carried out?

Patients lie down on a padded table in a treatment room. Three electrodes are applied to the chest and connected to an ECG machine at all times. The ECG displays the heart's rhythm during treatment. A set of cuffs are wrapped around the caves, thighs and buttocks. Patients experience a sensation of a strong "hug" moving upward from calves to thighs to buttocks during inflation followed by rapid release of pressure on deflation. Inflation and deflation are electronically synchronized with the heart beat using ECG monitors.

What is the treatment plan of ECP Treatment or EECP Therapy?

Total program is of 35 hours for cardiac patients. Treatment is administered 1 hour a day, 6 days a week, for 6 weeks. Some patients have two treatments in one day, in order to complete the program more quickly. The program is extended beyond 35 sessions, depending on medical condition and goals. For healthy patients, the cardiologist decides on the therapy durations based on the condition and risk factors.

Can ECP Treatment or EECP Treatment dislodge plaque & cause a stroke or heart attack?

No. Our body obeys the law of physics. Fluid follows the path of least resistance. During the program, when blood is flowing to the heart, it will open new blood vessels, which is popularly known as 'Natural Bypass". These new pathways are reinforced and become lasting routes for blood to reach the heart.

How does ECP Treatment or EECP Treatment compare to angioplasty or bypass surgery?

The five-year outcomes for ECP patients are virtually the same as for angioplasty and bypass surgery.

Are there any patients who are not recommended ECP Treatment or EECP Treatment?

If you are not active then you can go for a maintenance program yearly. If in any case symptoms return, then the program can be repeated again only after the cardiologist's consultation. We suggest you to have a healthy lifestyle and be physically active, this way you will be in charge of your health and we would be proud of that.
