PURPOSE: To assess the usefulness of factors unique to NCCT for the prediction of ESWL outcomes in patients with pancreatic duct stones. MATERIALS AND METHODS: We retrospectively evaluated 148 patients with multiple PDS who had undergone ESWL therapy. All patients received an examination for NCCT both before and after ESWL. The following parameters were measured and recorded: patient characteristics including sex and age; NCCT parameters including mean stone length, mean stone volumes before and after ESWL, mean value of CT attenuation, standard deviation of CT attenuation, variation coefficient of CT attenuation, skin-to-stone distance, and pancreatic duct diameter; ESWL outcome indexes including stone clearance rate calculated using the formula [Formula: see text], and the number of ESWL sessions...

OBJECTIVES: This study aims to conduct a meta-analysis comparing efficacy and safety outcomes between subcutaneous implantable cardioverter-defibrillator (S-ICD) and transvenous implantable cardioverter-defibrillator (TV-ICD). BACKGROUND: The S-ICD was developed to minimize complications related to the conventional TV-ICD. Direct comparison of clinical outcomes between the 2 devices has been limited by varying patient characteristics and definitions of complications with no randomized trials completed comparing these systems...

OBJECTIVES: This study assessed the defibrillation efficacy of the substernal-lateral electrode configuration. BACKGROUND: Subcutaneous implantable cardioverter-defibrillators (ICDs) are regarded as alternatives to transvenous ICDs in certain subjects. However, substantially higher shock energy of up to 80 J may be required. Proposed is a new defibrillation method of placing the shock coil into the substernal space. METHODS: This prospective, nonrandomized, feasibility study was conducted in subjects scheduled for midline sternotomy or implant of ICD...

OBJECTIVE: Distraction osteogenesis (DO) is widely used treatment for the bone deformities. In addition extracorporeal shock wave therapy (ESWT) is a new perspective on noninvasive modalities of management of the bone regeneration. We examined the effects of 2 different single doses of ESWT on the consolidation period of DO of the rabbit mandible using stereological, radiological and immunohistochemical methods in the present study. METHODS: DO was performed unilaterally in the mandible of 18 New Zealand rabbits (6 months' old, weighing between 2...

Understanding the interaction between shock waves and tissue is critical for ad- vancing the use of shock waves for medical applications, such as cancer therapy. This work aims to study shock wave-cell interaction in a more realistic environment, relevant to in vitro and in vivo studies, by using 3D computational models of healthy and cancerous cells. The results indicate that for a single cell embedded in an extracellular environment, the cellular geometry does not influence significantly the membrane strain but does influence the von Mises stress...

Controlled permeabilization of mammalian cell membranes is fundamental to develop gene and cell therapies based on macromolecular cargo delivery, a process that emerged against an increasing number of health afflictions, including genetic disorders, cancer and infections. Viral vectors have been successfully used for macromolecular delivery; however, they may have unpredictable side effects and have been limited to life-threatening cases. Thus, several chemical and physical methods have been explored to introduce drugs, vaccines, and nucleic acids into cells...

The physiotherapy treatment of low back pain (LBP) with physical stimulation offers different possibilities of application. Until now, the physical therapies used in LBP are laser therapy, ultrasonotherapy and currents. We conducted a clinical trial in order to verify whether shockwave therapy, which is very effective in treating tendinopathies and fracture consolidation delays, leads to clinical and electromyographic improvement in patients affected by LBP. We randomized thirty patients affected by LBP treated with shock waves (shockwave group) or a standard protocol characterized by rehabilitative exercises (control group)...

Background: To investigate the outcomes and mechanisms of low-intensity extracorporeal shock wave therapy (Li-ESWT) on stress urinary incontinence (SUI) in a vaginal balloon dilation (VBD) rat model. Methods: Thirty Sprague-Dawley rats were randomly grouped into normal controls, VBD only, and VBD with Li-ESWT. Li-ESWT was administered twice per week for 3 weeks. Afterward, all 30 rats were assessed with functional and histological studies. To explore the acute effect of Li-ESWT, another 25 rats, given intraperitoneal 5-ethynyl-2-deoxyuridine (EdU) at birth, were treated with Li-ESWT followed by assessment of vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) expression and endogenous progenitor cells distribution at 24 hours or 1 week after the last Li-ESWT therapy...

BACKGROUND: The entirely subcutaneous implantable cardioverter defibrillator (S-ICD) was introduced as a new alternative to conventional transvenous ICD (TV-ICD) in Japan in February 2016, but its safety and efficacy are unclear.Methods and Results:A total of 60 patients (48 men, median age, 60 years; IQR, 44-67 years; primary prevention, n=24) underwent S-ICD implantation between February 2016 and August 2017. The device pocket was formed in the intermuscular space between the serratus anterior muscle and the latissimus dorsi muscle, and the parasternal S-ICD lead was placed according to pre-implant screening...

Chronic plantar fasciitis is a common cause of foot pain, with conservative treatment providing relief for most patients. However, because of the common occurrence of this pathology, this leaves many patients dissatisfied. The purpose of the present study was to determine the effectiveness of extracorporeal shock wave therapy (ESWT) to treat chronic plantar fasciitis (PF) in a largely active duty population. A review of 82 patients (115 heels) who had undergone ESWT for chronic PF was performed. Outcome data were obtained by patient telephone interviews...

The success rate of extracorporeal shock wave therapy (ESWT) for fracture nonunions in human medicine (i.e., radiographic union at six months after ESWT) is only approximately 75%. Detailed knowledge regarding the underlying mechanisms that induce bio-calcification after ESWT is limited. We analyzed the biological response within mineralized tissue of a new invertebrate model organism, the zebra mussel Dreissena polymorpha , after exposure with extracorporeal shock waves (ESWs). Mussels were exposed to ESWs with positive energy density of 0...

OBJECTIVES: To evaluate the therapeutic effect of once-per-week low-intensity extracorporeal shock wave therapy (Li-ESWT) on underactive bladder (UAB) in the streptozotocin-induced diabetic rat model. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Thirty-six female Sprague-Dawley rats were assigned into 3 groups: normal control (NC), diabetes control (DMC), and diabetes underwent Li-ESWT (DM Li-ESWT). The two DM groups received intraperitoneal 60 mg/kg streptozotocin injection to induce diabetes mellitus...

Although radial extracorporeal shock wave therapy (rESWT) has been widely used to treat orthopedic disorders with promising clinical results, rESWT largely relies on clinicians' personal experiences and arbitrary judgments, without knowing relationships between administration doses and effective doses at target sites. In fact, practitioners lack a general and reliable way to assess propagation and distribution of pressure waves inside biological tissues quantitatively. This study develops a methodology to combine experimental measurements and computational simulations to obtain pressure fields from rESWT through calibrating and validating computational models with experimental measurements...

Shock waves are used clinically for breaking kidney stones and treating musculoskeletal indications. The mechanisms by which shock waves interact with tissue are still not well understood. Here, ultra-high-speed imaging was used to visualize the deformation of individual cells embedded in a tissue-mimicking phantom when subject to shock-wave exposure from a clinical source. Three kidney epithelial cell lines were considered to represent normal healthy (human renal epithelial), cancer (CAKI-2), and virus-transformed (HK-2) cells...
