In brief: In some patients
How effective eecp is for patients most likely depends on how an eecp center selects patients for treatment.
Some centers advertise that 75-80% of their patients improve, with improvement lasting 3-5 years. If interested, one can ask a cardiologist and also contact an eecp center for more information.

In brief: Minimally and no
Some people get improvement, at least temporarily.
In my book, it's the last resort.
