Extra Corporeal Pulse Activation

Paolo Manganotti, Ernesto Amelio, Claudio Guerra
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: shock waves are defined as a sequence of single sonic pulses largely used in the treatment of bone and tendon diseases and recently on muscular hypertonia in stroke patients. Our purpose is to investigate the short and long term effect of extra-corporeal shock wave therapy (ESWT) on the peripheral nerve conduction and central conductions from the treated muscles in normal human subjects in order to define safety criteria. METHODS: we studied 10 patients normal subjects...

Achilles tendinopathy is common and extracorporeal shockwaves have become a popular treatment for this condition, even though previous research has not provided conclusive results regarding its efficacy in cases of Achilles tendinopathy. Our aim was to evaluate 3 weekly shockwave treatments in patients with Achilles tendinopathy, as quantified by the Roles and Maudsley score. A total of 74 tendons in 60 patients were assessed at baseline and at least 1 year posttreatment, including 32 (43.24%) paratendinoses, 23 (31...

BACKGROUND: Extracorporeal shock wave therapy is a relatively new therapy used in the treatment of chronic tendon-related pain. Few randomized controlled trials have been performed on it, and no studies have examined the effectiveness of extracorporeal shock wave therapy as a frontline therapy for tendon-related pain. HYPOTHESIS: Subjects treated with active extracorporeal shock wave therapy will have higher rates of treatment success than subjects treated with sham extracorporeal shock wave therapy...

The effects of hypotension on systemic and renal hemodynamics, plasma renin activity (PRA), and renin secretion rate (RSR) were determined in dogs anesthetized with sodium pentobarbital plus chloralose. Renal blood flow (RBF) was determined with microspheres (15 micron) and with an electromagnetic flowmeter connected to an extra-corporeal circuit from the femoral artery to the renal artery. Hypotension was induced by nitroprusside infusion, which decreased peripheral resistance, and by hemorrhage, which reduced cardiac output...
