FDA Approved Natural Bypass Alternative
It would then be the enlarging network of collateral blood vessels that would bring extra blood into relatively blood starved areas of the heart as a consequence of critical blockages in the main arteries. In addition, this extra “stretching” of the heart muscle and arteries with that extra pulse of pressure helps to improve the elasticity or “stretch” of the heart muscle and arteries allowing them to work more effectively. One of the most common causes of heart failure is a so called “Diastolic Dysfunction” which basically is a stiff heart muscle that acts like rubber that’s been sitting in the sun too long. If the muscle cannot stretch enough to allow a proper volume of blood to get into the pumping chamber then, if bad enough, a person can develop heart failure even if they’ve never had a heart attack before. Regardless, this is easy to figure out if it is happening and another reason for why ECP has been approved also by the FDA specifically for its use in heart failure related to coronary artery disease. And there is nothing else available other than ECP that has the ability to improve the heart and arteries’ stretchability, otherwise known as elasticity. There are currently no medications available today that have any effect on this “stiff heart muscle” problem.
