Medical researchers grow vessels inside heart

Saturday, 10 July 2010 18:01

Researchers at the Sechenov Medical Academy of Moscow are testing new treatments for cardio-vascular diseases. They stimulate the heart with compressed air to uncover non-functioning vessels and even grow new ones. However, despite the proven effectiveness of these treatments, few clinics have taken advantage of them yet.

One treatment, enhanced external counterpulsation (EECP), is based on research in space medicine. The treatment involves channeling compressed air to the vessels of the lower limbs to normalize blood pressure and improve blood flow. This releases bioactive substances in the blood, which work to grow new vessels.

Another treatment is shockwave therapy, which involves stimulating the diseased areas of a heart.
