REVIEW
Christian G Chaussy, Hans-Göran Tiselius
It is well recognized that the popularity of extracorporeal shock wave lithotripsy (SWL), despite its non-invasive character, has decreased during recent years. This is partly explained by the technological achievements in endoscopy and urologists' enthusiasm for such procedures. Another explanation is that many urologists have been insufficiently successful with SWL. The latter effect might to some extent be a result of the performance of the lithotripter used, but in too many cases, it is evident that the principles of how shock wave lithotripsy should be carried out are poorly applied...

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...

Introduction Current treatment for erectile dysfunction (ED) mostly attempts to improve erectile function with limited impact on altering the underlying pathophysiology of ED. Recent animal experiments have supported the notion that low intensity extracorporeal shockwave therapy (LIESWT) significantly improves penile hemodynamics and might induce structural changes that regenerate penile tissue. Areas covered This review article provides an overview of the basic mechanics and clinical studies pertaining to LIESWT and its use in the field of ED...

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)...
