BACKGROUND Patients with diabetes are at greater risk for coronary events, yet they are less likely to benefit from revascularization than those without diabetes. Enhanced external counterpulsation has recently emerged as a treatment option for select patients with chronic stable angina. METHODS We examined baseline characteristics, angina response, and cardiac outcomes of patients with diabetes mellitus treated with Enhanced External Counterpulsation (EECP) for chronic stable angina.
