Key Mechanisms of Action
Hemodynamic Effects of RejuvaHeart™ Therapy
RejuvaHeart™ therapy is distinctively different from other common approaches to angina such as cardiac catherization, angioplasty, stent placement, and coronary artery bypass surgery. None of these procedures actually address the real underlying heart issue.
Build up of atherosclerotic plaques can prevent blood flow to the heart muscle, resulting in oxygen starvation of the cardiac muscle tissue.
The benefits of ECP Therapy are proven in hundreds of clinical trials to be a safe and effective treatment for patients with a variety of medical conditions. External Counterpulsation Therapy provides significant improvement to the entire health system by restoring the delivery of oxygenated blood to all parts of the body. ECP treatments are low risk,
The publications listed below will provide you a great start in understanding the benefits, mechanisms of action, and long-term outcomes of RejuvaHeart™ therapy.
The counterpulsating action of RejuvaHeart™ increases venous return and cardiac output. During RejuvaHeart™ systolic unloading is improved by increasing blood flow and oxygen to the heart, while diastolic augmentation increases the energy supply to the heart thus reducing the workload of the heart.
The hemodynamic effects of RejuvaHeart™ also increase the pressure gradient as well as the release of vascular growth factors that enhance coronary collateral circulation.
I have had patients who have experienced additional positive side effects from having the RejuvaFlow™ therapy. One man in particular reported that before RejuvaFlow™ treatment for erectile dysfunction, he would get short of breath just walking up the hill to his mailbox. Now he is not short of breath and attributes to the RejuvaFlow™ treatments.
The RejuvaHeart™ treatment deals with the entire body and it’s arterial flow. If we think of it in terms of the body being made up of 60 thousand miles of blood vessels, all of those blood vessels as we age, get more and more narrow. As the vessels get narrower, there’s less blood getting to the organs.
The RejuvaHeart™ technique increases blood flow to the heart, strengthens the circulation, and offers a proven way to treat heart disease in lieu of stents or bypass surgery. RejuvaHeart™ is a non-invasive treatment that enhances blood flow to the arteries of the heart for individuals who suffer from intense angina or those who can not undergo surgery or angioplasty stents or bypass surgery.
RejuvaHeart™ therapy is a non-invasive treatment for angina and heart failure that is available through RejuvaHeart™ Centers.
Answer the questions below to see if RejuvaHeart™ therapy might be right for you.
ECP Therapy may reduce the need for medications, increase exercise tolerance and improve your patient’s quality of life.
Yes, it’s completely non-invasive, thereby reducing the risk of complications associated with surgery.
The acronym ECP stands for External Counterpulsation.
ECP is a non-invasive, outpatient treatment for heart disease that is used to relieve or eliminate angina. During the treatment, blood pressure cuffs are wrapped around your legs, and squeeze and release in sync with your heartbeat,
