INTRODUCTION: Refractory Angina Pectoris (RAP) dramatically affects patients' life quality and medical costs. External Shockwave Myocardial Revascularization (ESMR) improves the cardiac blood flow thanks to its pro-angiogenetic action on ischaemic tissues. We hereby describe our experience of ESMR in RAP patients. MATERIALS AND METHODS: This is a retrospective study encompassing all patients referred to OSR for RAP treatment. Efficacy of ESMR was assessed considering the difference between pre and post therapy data in SAQ score and CCS, stress test performance, 24h ECG monitoring, NT-proBNP and echocardiographic measures...

Plantar fasciopathy (PF) is the most common cause of heel pain. Extracorporeal shockwave therapy (ESWT) improves the gait pattern in patients with PF. However, the effects of ESWT on the biomechanics of the ankle in these patients remains unclear. Sixteen participants were included in the present study. Of the 16 participants, 8 patients with PF were assigned to receive extracorporeal shockwave therapy, and 8 healthy participants served as an external control group. ESWT was applied to the PF group for 1500 pulses at an energy flux of 0...

The goal of our research was demonstrated that multiple molecules in microenvironments of the early osteoarthritis (OA) joint tissue may be actively responded to extracorporeal shockwave therapy (ESWT) treatment, which potentially regulated biological function of chondrocytes and synovial cells in early OA knee. We demonstrated that shockwave treatment induced the expression of protein-disulfide isomerase-associated 3 (Pdia-3) which was a significant mediator of the 1α,25-Dihydroxyvitamin D 3 (1α,25(OH)2D3) rapid signaling pathway, using two-dimensional electrophoresis, histological analysis and quantitative polymerase chain reaction (qPCR)...

Managing patients with chronic pelvic pain syndrome (CPPS) refractory to the traditional 3-As therapy (antibiotics, alpha-blockers, and anti-inflammatories) is a challenging task. Low-intensity extracorporeal shock wave therapy (LI-ESWT) was recently reported to be able to improve pain, urinary symptoms, and even sexual function by inducing neovascularization and anti-inflammation, reducing muscle tone, and influencing nerve impulses. This study evaluates whether combined treatment with LI-ESWT can restore clinical ability and quality of life (QoL) in patients refractory to 3-As therapy...

Plantar fasciitis is a common cause of plantar-aspect heel pain. Although many patients will improve, a proportion will have ongoing and sometimes debilitating symptoms. Evidence from randomized controlled trials has shown that extracorporeal shockwave therapy (ESWT) results in benefits in treating pain. However, uncertainties remain whether these benefits translate to improvements in overall function. The present prospective case series examined the results from 35 patients with chronic plantar fasciitis who had undergone a course of ESWT in addition to a graded rehabilitation program...

Extracorporeal shock wave therapy (ESWT) has shown promising results in treating epicondylitis lateralis humeri and fasciitis plantaris. This study investigates whether the evidence supports ESWT as part of the conservative treatment regime of chronic Achilles tendinopathy. The differences in diagnosing chronic Achilles tendinopathy, the use of different ESWT-machines and the difference in the evaluating methods for pain make it difficult to compare the studies. There is, however, a clear tendency toward ESWT having a positive treatment effect on chronic Achilles tendinopathy at both the insertion and the mid-portion...

Dupuytren’s disease is a debilitating disease of the hand characterized by nodules on the surface of the palm with progressive loss of finger extension. The chosen forms of treatment are infiltrative and surgical. Conservative treatment could be useful but few studies have been carried out and these regarded mainly stretching exercises and thermo-therapy. To date, no study has analyzed the effects of biostimulation with shock-waves (SW) and high energy laser therapy [Temperature controlled High Energy Adjustable multi-mode emission Laser (THEAL)]...
