Will EECP treatment eliminate the need for bypass surgery?

    No. Some patients with more extensive disease or those who have disease of the left main coronary artery require bypass surgery. EECP treatment is an option for patients who are unsuitable for or unwilling to undergo, invasive procedures. For patients who have undergone multiple invasie procedures and for whom additional surgery carries excessive risk, EECP treatment may be the only way to obtain relief from crippling angina.
