Ronald S. Weaver, MD, Owner of Global Cardio Care Centers, Announces EECP Treatment Success for Cardiomyopathy Patient Who Needed Heart Transplant
Date:7/22/2014

r heart muscle resulted in an increased ejection fraction due to EECP. To date, the patient remains off the heart transplant list.

“This is a classic example of how EECP therapy can benefit patients with end-stage cardiovascular disease. It’s a solid example of how EECP is positively affecting the U.S. healthcare cost burden because one heart transplant costs more than $1.2 million, as compared to one course of EECP treatment, which costs less than $6,000 for 35 hours of EECP,” said Ronald S. Weaver, MD, owner of Global Cardio Care Centers. “The fact that this patient with end-stage ischemia cardiomyopathy was able to come off a heart transplant list because of EECP, along with a serious lifestyle change, suggests there are more people who could also benefit from this therapy.”

Patients come to Global Cardio Care Centers with advanced angina pectoris, congestive heart failure, and failed bypass surgery with or without many co-morbid conditions that prevent more costly and risky invasive procedures.

Two additional current patients who received EECP at Global Cardio Care Centers did not need to go forward with scheduled heart transplant surgeries, which would have added to the already extensive burden on the U.S. healthcare system.
