Extracorporeal shockwave therapy (ESWT) is applied successfully in various orthopedic disorders. Since shockwaves have demonstrated significant bactericidal effectiveness in vitro, safety and effectiveness of ESWT in vivo were evaluated in a rabbit model of osteomyelitis. Chronic osteomyelitis was induced by injecting sodium morrhuate and Staphylococcus aureus into the proximal tibia of 12 New Zealand white rabbits. Four and five wk after the initial operation, soft focused ESWT was applied… CONTINUE READING
