In brief: EECP
Eecp is generally considered for patients that are not candidates for revascularization but have on-going, stable chest pain or angina symptoms.
Patients who have serious heart failure or heart valve problems, uncontrolled hypertension, peripheral vascular disease (PVD) blockages - 80% of heart disease patients have pvd, pregnant or have bleeding disorders, including ulcers, should not have eecp.

In brief: EECP
Eecp is a procedure with limited indications in medicine.
Before referring a patient, the patient should be informed about what the procedure is and what can/can't be expected of it. The dr. Referring should discuss with the patient. The description of the procedure, its risks, benefits and possible harms and outcomes should all be discussed.
