rpulsation in rehabilitation of erectile dysfunction: a narrative literature review:
It has been also shown that ECP can improve other diseases such as restless legs syndrome, retinal artery occlusion, kidney excretory function and erectile dysfunction. (p394)
2-Enhanced External Counterpulsation Efficacy on Exercise Endurance in COPD Patients and Healthy Subjects: A Pilot Randomized Clinical Trial:
In patients with COPD, the present study showed that ECP therapy could improve exercise endurance in this population. This pilot study suggests that ECP leads to a certain improvement on the exercise endurance of different adult populations, from healthy adults to those with COPD.
