Mr. Prakashbhai Patel
A 35 years old male was admitted in hospital for complaint of chest pain and difficulty in breathing. On routine investigation his ECG showed ischemic changes and his 2D Echo showed reduction in his LVEF = 40%, enlarged LA/LV was noted and RWMA (regional wall motion abnormalities) seen at rest. He was advised for coronary angiography, which revealed absolutely normal to the surprise. He was diagnosed to have Non-ischemic Dilated Cardiomyopathy. As there was no option for surgical intervention as his coronary arteries were normal so cardiologist at another hospital advised him for medical management. He came to Saaol Heart Center in seek of help and agreed to do EECP treatment.
After completion of 35 sessions of EECP treatment his repeat 2D Echo showed that pumping power of his heart increased to 64%, all chambers of heart are within normal limits, and there was no RWMA noted. His complaint of difficulty in breathing get completely resolved and now climbs upto 7th floor without any breathing problem. He also adopted our life style modification program.
