A significant increase in the number of patients with heart failure of varied etiology has been observed in the recent years. Apart from pharmacological and surgical therapies, new, non-invasive assistance methods of cardiovascular system are still sought. One of them is external counterpulsation. Within this study, effectiveness of such a form of therapy has been examined in a group of 10 patients with an ischemic left ventricular systolic dysfunction. It has been shown that external counterpulsation has a beneficial influence onto the result of a six-minute walk test and causes a slight decrease in the creatinine concentration in the patients undergoing the tests.
