In brief: Heart disease

Eecp is a therapy to consider when every other effective therapy has been expended.
It is not highly effective but can help in this situation.

In brief: Almost no risk

Not much help either. Coronary grafting for the properly chosen patient has incredible benefits.
Not really comparable items.
