Overview of ECP Theraphy

External Counterpulsation Therapy (also known as ECP) is a safe, non-surgical treatment procedure that delivers great clinical benefits to patients with symptomatic coronary artery disease. External Counterpulsation Therapy has been around for decades dating back to the orginial research at Harvard in the 1950’s.
