Let me know the effect of EECP treatment for heart blocks. Whether it is alternative for the bypass surgery.

2 Doctors Answered
If a bypass can be done EECP is not an alternative. So far no significant Results have been found in studies.

Dear Lybrateruser, - EECP procedure is more beneficial in a person with angina, if a person has been recommended bypass surgery due to high degree of blockage then this process may not be effective - consult the concerned hospital & the doctor for more details.
