Chest pain (angina) seriously affects quality of life. It can persist despite angioplasty, open heart (bypass) surgery and maximal drug therapy. Many UK doctors are not aware of Counterpulsation therapy. It is widely available in the USA including in the World famous Cleveland and Mayo Clinics. In microvascular angina (Cardiac Syndrome X) the large blood vessels in the heart are normal but chest pain continues, limiting daily activities of life, medication may not help. Counterpulsation can reduce or remove chest pains.
