This article includes a historic review of the research literature, current evidence of effectiveness, potential mechanisms of action of EDTA, and some brief case reports. The authors conclude that EDTA chelation therapy is a valuable therapeutic option for vascular disease, either alone or in conjunction with standard treatment protocols.
