ABSTRACT
Enhanced external counterpulsation (EECP) is a valuable therapeutic option for patients with coronary artery disease and refractory angina. Although the exact mechanisms by which this technique exerts favorable effects remain unclear, improvement in endothelial function is con- sidered a potential mechanism contributing to the clinical benefit associated with EECP. We describe a young woman with severely symptomatic coronary endothelial dysfunction in the absence of obstructive coronary artery.
