      Abstract

      Antecedentes: Las alteraciones inflamatorias y calcificantes de las partes blandas son trastornos con importante repercusión económica y social. Su tratamiento puede realizarse con fármacos o con terapia física, ante cuyo fracaso, la cirugía era el último escalón terapéutico existente. En los últimos años se está utilizando una alternativa no quirúrgica para tratarlas: la aplicación de ondas de choque extracorpóreas. El objetivo de este trabajo es comprobar la capacidad para disminuir el dolor en diferentes alteraciones con esta técnica terapéutica y definir las pautas de aplicación. Métodos: Se trataron 18 deportistas y 12 pacientes de la población normal todos con alguna alteración: espolón calcáneo, tendinitis calcificada y no calcificada y fascitis plantar. Los resultados se evaluaron por la escala analógica visual de dolor y por la ecografía, antes y después del tratamiento. Resultados: Hubo un porcentaje de reducción del dolor de 100%, siendo la población normal atendida la que mostró síntomas de una mejor evolución en el período de tiempo evaluado. Conclusiones: Se concluye que agotadas las medidas terapéuticas médicas y de terapia física, el tratamiento con ondas de choque extracorpóreas es una buena alternativa al empleo de la cirugía.

      Background: Inflammatory and calcifying diseases of the soft tissues are disorders having significant economical and social repercussions. They can be treated with drugs or physical therapy, and if these fail, surgery used to be the last existing therapeutic step. In recent years, a non-surgical alternative is being used to treat them, the application of extracorporeal shock waves. This work aims to verify the capacity of this therapeutic technique to diminish pain and to define its application rules. Method: We treated 18 athletes and 12 patients from normal population with heel spurs, calcified and noncalcified tendonitis and plantar fasciitis. The results were evaluated with a visual analogical scale of pain and by echography, prior to treatment and after. Results: The treatment was effective in 100% of the subjects. Conclusions: We conclude that once the medical therapeutic and the physical therapy measures are used up, treatment with shock waves is a good alternative to using surgery.

      A systematic review of shockwave therapies in soft tissue conditions: focusing on the evidence.

      'Shock wave' therapies are now extensively used in the treatment of musculoskeletal injuries. This systematic review summarises the evidence base for the use of these modalities. A thorough search of the literature was performed to identify studies of adequate quality to assess the evidence base for shockwave therapies on pain in specific soft tissue injuries. Both focused extracorporeal shockwave therapy (F-ESWT) and radial pulse therapy (RPT) were examined. 23 appropriate studies were identified. There is evidence for the benefit of F-ESWT and of RPT in a number of soft tissue musculoskeletal conditions, and evidence that both treatment modalities are safe. There is evidence that F-ESWT is effective in the treatment of plantar fasciitis, calcific tendinitis, and that RPT is effective in plantar fasciitis. Where benefit is seen in F-ESWT, it appears to be dose dependent, with greater success seen with higher dose regimes. There is low level evidence for lack of benefit of low-dose F-ESWT and RPT in non-calcific rotator cuff disease and mixed evidence in lateral epicondylitis.

        Use of extracorporeal shock waves in the treatment of pseudarthrosis, tendinopathy and other orthopedic diseases.

         G Haupt (1997)
        The use of shock waves in orthopedic diseases was reviewed with special regard to the clinical applications. Findings in the literature and results from our own studies were analyzed and summarized. Extracorporeal shock waves induced osteoneogenesis in animal models with intact and fractured bones. Based on these findings shock waves were used for the treatment of pseudarthrosis in humans. Most patients had at least 1 unsuccessful operation before shock wave therapy. Complete reunion was noted in 62 to 91% of cases and shock waves are recommended by some as the first choice of treatment for hypertrophic pseudarthrosis. After failed nonoperative therapy shock waves were used for the treatment of patients with various diseases as secondary treatment. The success rate for treatment of tendinopathies, such as tennis elbow, periarthritis humeroscapularis or calcaneal spur, was approximately 80%. For calcific tendinitis shock wave therapy seems to be superior to all other minimal or noninvasive techniques without compromising a potential later operation. Shock waves have changed medical therapy substantially. Accounting for the epidemiology of the treated diseases, this new change may equal or even surpass the impact of extracorporeal shock wave lithotripsy.
