Is there any medicine which can help increasing Ejection Fraction?

I learnt that Ejection fraction (EF) represents the volumetric fraction of blood pumped out of the heart with each heart beat. My mother has low EF, she has got angioplasty done and then heart bypass surgery. She is very sensitive in nature. Her age is around 62.
Before and after surgery her EF is 30%, there is no increase in EF.

Is there any medicine or any remedy/exercise exist by which EF can be increased? anything that can help. more  

Renuka.
That means your mother is going to stay on for 3 more months in U.S. I am getting worried about her because the Colic Pain can errupt any time. 3 months is a long time to remain on Tender Hooks in U.S.? Lets keep our fingers crossed and keep praying.
Regards.

Hello Narayan, Gall Bladder treatment will take 3 months. They have asked to drink lots of water for 3 months and not to take oil in any form. After that ultrasound will tell the result. more  
How is your mother now Renuka. Did the gall bladder problem get addressed? more

London, Apr 17: Turmeric may help lower heart attack risk in people post bypass surgery, thanks to curcumin, the yellow pigment present in the spice which has antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties. Bypass surgery improves blood supply to the heart muscle. However, during the surgery that is usually performed with the heart stopped, the organ can be damaged by prolonged lack of blood flow, increasing the patient's risk of heart attack. The new findings suggest that curcumins may reduce such risks when added to traditional drug treatments. The results need to be confirmed through further research, said Wanwarang Wongcharoen from Chiang Mai University in Thailand, who led the study, the American Journal of Cardiology reported. Researchers at the Thai university studied 121 patients who had non-emergency bypass surgery between 2009 and 2011. Half the patients were given one-gram curcumin capsules to take four times a day, starting three days before their surgery and continuing for five days afterwards. The other half took the same number of drug-free placebo capsules. The researchers found that during their post-bypass hospital stays, 13 percent of the patients who'd been taking curcumins had a heart attack, compared to 30 percent in the placebo group. After accounting for any initial pre-surgery differences, Wongcharoen and his colleagues calculated that people on curcumins had a 65 percent lower chance of heart attack. "It's very, very encouraging," said Bharat Aggarwal of the study. Aggarwal works with the MD Anderson Cancer Center in Houston, Texas, which studies the use of curcumins in cancer therapy, according to the Daily Mail. According to researchers, it is likely that the antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties of curcumin may have helped limit heart damage in the patients.

EF 30% IS DUE TO WEAK HEART MUSCLES. CHECK THE ABOVE WITH A CARDIOLOGIST.

Well One should be careful when u try to increase EF. There are some medicines but I will advice you to consult your cardiologist. EF is depending on the contractile function of the left ventricle of the human heart. In post CABG patients it's usually decreased.
