BACKGROUND: Endoscopic therapy and surgery are both conventional treatments to remove pancreatic duct stones that developed during the natural course of chronic pancreatitis. However, few studies comparing the effect and safety between surgery drainage and endoscopic drainage (plus Extracorporeal Shock Wave Lithotripsy, ESWL).The aim of this study was to compare the benefits between endoscopic and surgical drainage of the pancreatic duct for patients with calcified chronic pancreatitis...

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: Recent clinical and animal studies have shown that extracorporeal shock wave therapy has a promoting influence on the healing process of musculoskeletal disorders. However, the underlying biological effects of extracorporeal shock wave therapy on human skeletal muscle cells have not yet been investigated. METHODS: In this study, we investigated human skeletal muscle cells after exposure to radial extracorporeal shock waves in a standardized in vitro setup...

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...

OBJECTIVE: Extracorporeal shock wave therapy (ESWT), including radial shock wave (RaSW) and focused shock wave (FoSW) types, is widely used for managing tendinopathies. The difference in efficacy between the 2 shock wave characteristics with different dosage levels remains controversial, and the purpose of this meta-analysis was to examine it for patients with lower extremity (LE) tendinopathy. DESIGN: A comprehensive search of online databases and search engines was performed...

REVIEW
Yasmin Elkhashab, Andrew Ng
PURPOSE OF REVIEW: Coccygodynia is pain within the coccyx area. The diagnosis is made clinically with symptoms of pain in the coccyx region and worsening pain in sitting position. The initial treatment is conservative therapy. For patients who do not respond to conservative therapies, there are further interventions available. This includes local injection of local anesthetics and steroids, neurolysis of sacral nerve roots, caudal epidural block, pulse radiofrequency (PRF), intra-rectal massage and manipulation, ganglion impar block, levator ani massage and stretching, coccyx manipulation, and coccygectomy...

Interventional treatment of stones essentially consists of three treatment modalities. Extracorporeal shockwave lithotripsy (ESWL), in addition to uterorenoscopy (URS) and percutaneous nephrolitholapaxy (PCNL) is an essential treatment pillar and is the only noninvasive therapy option for the treatment of urinary stones. After a long period of ESWL being the leading choice in stone treatment, the number of SWL interventions diminished in recent years in favor of the other two treatment modalities (URS and PCNL)...

OBJECTIVES: Extracorporeal shockwave therapy (ESWT) and corticosteroid injection (CSI) are treatment options for plantar fasciitis. Their clinical outcome comparison remains a debate. Also, the thickness changes of the plantar fascia on objective evaluation under the medium energy ESWT and CSI therapy are elusive. METHODS: A total of 97 patients with chronic plantar fasciitis were enrolled in the randomized prospective trial. Forty-seven patients received extracorporeal shock wave therapy (ESWT), and fifty patients received corticosteroid injection (CSI)...

The aim of this study is to investigate the effects of extracorporeal shock wave therapy (ESWT) on muscle rheological and functional properties in a population of young athletes. Thirty-two football and basketball players were recruited and randomized into two groups. The athletes underwent three sessions of therapy administered every five days to the thigh muscles. The treatment consisted of ESWT (electromagnetic generator, Energy Flux Density=0.03 mJ/mm2) or a placebo treatment bilaterally on the quadricep and femoral bicep muscles...
