5 Best EECP Centres in Malaysia 2020

Looking for the best EECP treatment centres, reviews and prices in Malaysia? You are in the right place! Enhanced External Counter Pulsation (EECP) is a non-invasive treatment to lower the number and intensity of angina episodes. It is an alternative solution for patients suffering from angina, who have exhausted all their other medical treatments and therapy choices.



Treatment is administered through three pairs of external inflatable cuffs that are applied around the lower legs, upper legs and buttocks. A mechanism of squeeze-and-release is then synced with the heartbeat to increase blood flow to the heart and the rest of the body. Through this process, EECP generates new pathways surrounding the blocked arteries and expand the network of the small blood vessels to promote and increase blood flow towards the heart muscle. It can also be referred to as a natural bypass.

In 2014, various renowned medical organisations, including the American Heart Association, Society of Cardiovascular Angiography and Interventions, and the American College of Cardiology, approved EECP as an effective treatment to cure patients suffering from angina refractory.


EECP Treatment Price in Malaysia?

The average cost for EECP in Malaysia is approximately RM 500 per session. EECP is normally administered one hour per day for 30 - 35 days. Therefore, the total cost is about 500 x 30 = RM 15,000; if you are going for 30 sessions.


EECP Malaysia Review

According to New Straits Times:

ECP therapy, a non-invasive therapy to treat coronary artery diseases, was introduced in Malaysia in 2002.

To date, ECP doctors have conducted 50,000 hours of treatment with 80 to 90 per cent efficacy without any causality.

There are at present about 50 ECP medical centres, including hospitals, clinics and wellness centres in Malaysia.

Retrospective studies show that ECP therapy is non-invasive, safe and cost-effective.

It is 10 times less costly compared to invasive stents.

ECP/EECP therapy is approved by the US Food and Drug Administration and the Malaysian Medical Device Authority of the Health Ministry.

Since ECP is classified as a medical equipment, it should be in clinics, medical centres, hospitals or wellness centres, supervised by medical practitioners.

Given the fact that ECP/EECP therapy is non-invasive and cost effective, the Health Ministry may want to consider promoting it as an alternative to costly, invasive treatment of coronary artery diseases.
