In brief: CABG

Coronary bypass surgery is a highly effective treatment for symptomatic coronary artery disease not adequately controlled with diet, exercise and medications.
EECP is a weakly effective treatment used when all other more effective treatments such as those above have not yielded symptom relief. It can help to improve symptoms when the more effective means haven't succeeded.
