Abstract:Stimulation of collateral artery growth is a promising therapeutic option for patients with coronary artery disease. External counterpulsation is a non-invasive technique suggested to promote the growth of myocardial collateral arteries via increase of shear stress. The Art.Net.2 Trial tests invasively and functionally for the first time the hypothesis whether a treatment course with external counterpulsation (over 7 weeks) can induce the growth of myocardial collateral arteries.
