There's now a safer alternative to bypass surgery, it's called Enhanced External Counterpulsation (EECP). It's approved by Medicare for patients with the angina. EECP is a nonsurgical therapy that dramatically improved circulation by pumping blood from the legs to the heart thus creating circulatory pathways around blockages in coronary arteries. The amazing part is that EECP is without risk while roughly 1 in 30 patients undergoing bypass surgery dies on the operating table.
