Ethylene Diamine Tetra Acetic Acid (EDTA) chelation therapy has been considered a definitive alternative therapy for by-pass surgery in atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease for more than four decades. It is a relatively inexpensive method believed to restore blood flow in atherosclerotic vessels. However, the benefits of chelation therapy yet remain controversial in the treatment of ischemic heart disease. We observed the effect of EDTA chelation therapy on exercise tolerance in 13… Expand
