EECP is a non-invasive out-patient treatment to help many people with angina and
heart failure, including when the disabling symptoms of angina are uncontrolled or
worsening despite maximal medical and surgical intervention.
Clinical Trials show that approximately 80% of angina patients experience significant
symptom relief after EECP that may last up to three years.
It is funded by some PCT’s within the NHS on a named-patient basis, and is reimbursed
by some Private Health Insurers. It is rapidly increasing within the NHS, in USA
(where it is both FDA and Medicare approved), the Middle East and the Indian subcontinent.
This web site is designed to provide patients and physicians with information about
EECP. The Dove Clinic doctors in London and Winchester are able to discuss EECP
with you and treatment is available at the treatment centre in Twyford near Winchester.
“Since completing the treatment I feel much healthier and only on rare occasions
use my GTN Spray. The treatment has made a huge difference to my life and how I
enjoy it.” RA aged 71
