The definition of “small vessel disease” is generally defined as coronary heart disease with thin heart vessels.
used for patients. In these patients, atherosclerosis progresses rapidly, heart disease occurs at a young age; There are also difficulties in the treatment.
Atherosclerosis, as a result of damage to the inner surface of the vessel, is caused by blood lipids and
means calcium deposits. This accumulation, which is called “Atherosclerosis Plaque”,
The right protrusion narrows the vascular space and creates an obstacle to blood flow from the vein.
Atherosclerosis is a process that begins in adolescence. genetic predisposition, lack of exercise,

What are the negative effects of vascular thinning?
Let’s bring a size of 2mm before our eyes. In a heart vessel with a diameter of 2mm, a pinhead-sized atherosclerosis plaque can cause a serious stenosis in that vessel. And it can cause chest pain complaints with exertion by blocking blood flow. On the other hand, an atherosclerosis plaque of the same size does not interfere with blood flow in a vessel with a diameter of 3-4 mm. It grows quietly over the years. Until this vessel reaches a size that narrows the space by 70%, complaints of chest pain with exertion begin. It is easily understood from this explanation that atherosclerosis narrows the veins in people with small veins, at an early age and widely. In those with relatively wide veins, it takes years for significant stenosis to appear.
Another negative aspect of vascular thinning is about treatment. In patients with thin-vessel coronary heart disease, stenosis can be expanded with balloon-stent or new vessel surgery can be performed.

Within months, the disease reappears with re-constrictions.
How to prevent and treat thin vessel disease?
The most effective way to widen thin veins, starting from a young age, regularly aerobic type.
was exercise. That is, walking briskly for 30 – 45 minutes a day, at least 2-3 days a week,
swimming and dancing. Exercise both widens the blood vessels and
protects against arteriosclerosis.
People who have not exercised from a young age, and those with coronary heart disease
The only treatment option for EECP is Natural Bypass Therapy. This bloodless, non-surgical treatment, which is applied to the lower part of the body in the form of a massage compatible with the heart rhythm, ensures that the heart vessels are filled more fully with each heartbeat. Thus, at the end of this treatment, which is applied for 1-2 hours a day for 35-40 hours, the heart vessels, which are constantly filled with high pressure, expand. In addition, the thinner capillaries between the large heart vessels are also opened, and the vascular network of the heart is enriched. This enriched vascular network creates natural bypasses that bring blood to the heart regions that cannot receive enough blood due to vascular stenosis. In this way, the patient’s complaints disappear and the treatment is provided.
