  • Extracorporeal shockwave therapy in musculoskeletal disorders. [Review]
    J Orthop Surg Res 2012; 7:11Wang CJ
  • The sources of shockwave generation include electrohydraulic, electromagnetic and piezoelectric principles. Electrohydraulic shockwaves are high-energy acoustic waves generated under water explosion with high voltage electrode. Shockwave in urology (lithotripsy) is primarily used to disintegrate urolithiasis, whereas shockwave in orthopedics (orthotripsy) is not used to disintegrate tissues, rath…
  • The biological effects of extracorporeal shock wave therapy (eswt) on tendon tissue. [Journal Article]
    Muscles Ligaments Tendons J 2012; 2(1):33-7Notarnicola A, Moretti B
  • There is currently great interest in the use of Extracorporeal Shock Wave Therapy (ESWT) and in clarifying the mechanisms of action in tendon pathologies. The success rate ranges from 60% to 80% in epicondylitis, plantar fasciitis, cuff tendinitis, trocanteritis, Achilles tendinitis or jumper's knee. In contrast to urological treatments (lithotripsy), where shockwaves are used to disintegrate ren…
  • [Anaesthesia for shock wave therapy in orthopaedics]. [Journal Article]
    Recenti Prog Med 2005; 96(4):183-6Rodolá F, Conti C, … Chierichini A
  • Shock wave therapy (orthotripsy) is a non-invasive method to treat or ameliorate many musculoskeletal disorders. When higher energies are applied on bones pain is associated with treatment, and anaesthesia is necessary, but there is no need of analgesia after shock wave application. Patients usually receive treatments during a short hospital stay: therefore, short duration drugs and techniques sh…
  • Orthotripsy mimicking asystole. [Journal Article]
    Pacing Clin Electrophysiol 2004; 27(4):563Vlay SC
  • An insertable loop recorder implanted to evaluate dizziness, documented an apparent arrhythmia during an orthotripsy procedure. Review of the tracing revealed artefact related to an electrostatic discharge that should not be mistaken for ventricular asystole.
  • An overview of shock wave therapy in musculoskeletal disorders. [Review]
    Chang Gung Med J 2003; 26(4):220-32Wang CJ
  • Shock waves are high-energy acoustic waves generated under water with high voltage explosion and vaporization. Shock wave in urology (lithotripsy) is primarily used to disintegrate urolithiasis, whereas shock wave in orthopedics (orthotripsy) is not used to disintegrate tissues, rather to induce neovascularization, improve blood supply and tissue regeneration. The application of shock wave therap…
