BACKGROUND Mechanisms responsible for anti-ischemic benefits of enhanced external counterpulsation (EECP) remain unknown. This was the first randomized sham-controlled study to investigate the extracardiac effects of EECP on peripheral artery flow-mediated dilation. METHODS AND RESULTS Forty-two symptomatic patients with coronary artery disease were(More)
