Vasculopathy, immunological abnormalities, and excessive tissue fibrosis are key elements in the pathogenesis of progressive systemic sclerosis (SSc). Extracorporeal shock waves (ESW) have anti-inflammatory and regenerative effects on different tissues. We hypothesized that ESW can reduce endothelial cell damage and skin fibrosis in patients with SSc. We(More)

OBJECTIVE To investigate practice-dependent plasticity and cortical inhibition/excitability in good sleepers after a night of sleep fragmentation (SF), by means of transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS). METHODS In basal condition (BC), after a full night of spontaneous sleep, and in fragmented condition (FC), after a fragmented night of sleep, motor(More)
