Low-intensity extracorporeal shock wave therapy (Li-ESWT) is used in the treatment of erectile dysfunction, but its mechanisms are not well understood. Previously, we found that Li-ESWT increased the expression of brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF). Here we assessed the underlying signaling pathways in Schwann cells in vitro and in penis tissue in vivo after nerve injury. The result indicated that BDNF were significantly increased by the Li-ESWT after nerve injury, as well as the expression of BDNF in Schwann cells (SCs, RT4-D6P2T) in vitro...

Osteoporosis is a metabolic skeletal disease characterized by an imbalance between osteoclast-mediated bone resorption and osteoblast-mediated bone formation. We examined the beneficial effect of shock waves (SW) alone or in combination with raloxifene (RAL) on bone loss in ovariectomized rats (OVX). Sixteen weeks after surgery, OVX were treated for five weeks with SW at the antero-lateral side of the right hind leg, one session weekly, at 3 Hz (EFD of 0.33 mJ/mm2), or with RAL (5 mg/kg/die, per os) or with SW+RAL...

Tendinopathy in the region of the knee joint is a common pathological disorder. People active in sports, in particular, have a high probability of suffering from tendinopathy. Despite its high clinical relevance, the level of evidence of therapy options for tendinopathy in the knee region differs greatly. This review gives an overview of current evidence levels for therapy options in tendinopathy of the quadriceps, patellar and pes anserinus insertion tendons as well as of the distal iliotibial tract tendon...

BACKGROUND: There is no consensus regarding the treatment of Achilles insertional tendinopathies. Eccentric training remains the main choice in the conservative treatment of this illness; however, the good results in the management of non-insertional Achilles tendinopathy were not replicated in the insertional condition. Low energy shock wave therapy has been described as an alternative to these patients, but has yet to be empirically tested. HYPOTHESIS: Shock wave therapy, adjunctive to the eccentric strengthening protocol, will improve measures of pain and function...

Tendinopathies of the foot and ankle result in substantial impairment of the mobility of patients and have a high clinical significance. Knowledge of the origin of these diseases has been accumulated over decades from the multitude of intrinsic and extrinsic triggering factors based on biomechanical considerations with an evidence-based medicine (EBM) level 5. A high correlation between tendinopathy and hypervascularization of the Achilles tendon was found in a double-blind randomized prospective study using Doppler ultrasound (EBM level 1) but these results were not reproducible; therefore, the importance of these findings is unclear...

The fabella is a small sesamoid bone generally located in the tendon of the lateral head of the gastrocnemius behind the lateral condyle of the femur. Fabella syndrome is the occurrence of posterolateral knee pain associated with the fabella. It is a rare cause of knee pain that is often misdiagnosed. Fabella syndrome can be managed with conservative or surgical treatment. We applied radial extracorporeal shock wave therapy as a new treatment strategy for fabella syndrome and achieved a successful outcome.

AIM: To identify whether the location of refractory patella tendinopathy (PT) has an effect on treatment modality (radial extracorporeal shock wave therapy (rESWT) or arthroscopic debridement). METHODS: Between 2012 and 2014, 40 patients with PT underwent a magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scan. This confirmed the diagnosis as either involving the tendon itself (group A, 20) or with retropatella fat pad extension (group B, 20). All patients underwent rESWT. If there was no improvement patients proceeded with surgery in the form of arthroscopic debridement (by senior authors CW and AG)...

HYPOTHESIS: Internal jugular vein (IJV) compression before blast injury will lead to reduced risk of traumatic hearing injury following exposure to a blast injury. BACKGROUND: IJV compression and its effects on not only intracranial, but also intracochlear pressure may potentiate blast induced hearing injury, therefore, precluding its use as a prophylactic therapy for blast induced traumatic brain injury. METHODS: Twenty Sprague Dawley rats were exposed to a 17...

Extracorporeal shock wave therapy (ESWT) is widely used for calcific tendonitis of the shoulder. The initial rationale for this therapy was to break the calcification, but this effect does not always occur. To date, we do not know how calcifications evolve or why they may be less responsive to the action of the shock waves. One hundred and seventy-four shoulders with calcific tendinitis were prospectively evaluated before and after ESWT, using the radiographic classifications according to Gartner and Heyer, to Bosworth and to Molè...

We presented a unique phenomenon of 2:1 cardiac resynchronization therapy pacing due to T wave oversensing. Ultimately, by utilizing a unique feature of integrated bipolar sensing, we succeeded to eliminate the T wave oversensing signals, and restore 1:1 CRTD pacing. Importantly, this feature enabled us to overcome the T wave oversensing issue, without the need to decrease the ventricular sensitivity, which could potentially interfere with ventricular arrhythmia detection and appropriate shock delivery when required...

Shock wave ultrasound therapy techniques, increasingly used for non-invasive surgery, require extremely high pressure amplitudes in precise focal spots, and large high-power transducers arranged on a spherical shell are usually used to achieve that. This solution allows limited steering of the beam around the geometrical focus of the device at the cost of a large number of transducer elements, and the treatment of large and moving organs like the heart is challenging or impossible. This paper validates numerically and experimentally the possibility of using a time reversal cavity (TRC) for the same purpose...
