The medical potential of shock waves has not been fully explored yet

The medical potential of shock waves has not been fully explored yet

30 years of shock waves in medicine

Tägerwilen/Switzerland, 15 December 2010 – Only 30 years have passed since the first kidney stone patient was treated successfully with shock waves. What started as an experiment is now a success story: patients from around the globe benefit from the treatment with shock waves. Today the waves have a wide range of application and physicians use them not only in urology but also in orthopaedics, cardiology, dermatology and veterinary medicine. New research results in the fields of wound healing and neurologic diseases show that shock waves will become even more important in the future.

Das medizinische Potential der Stosswellen ist noch lange nicht ausgeschöpft

Das medizinische Potential der Stosswellen ist noch lange nicht ausgeschöpft

30 Jahre Stosswellen in der Medizin

Tägerwilen/Schweiz, 15. Dezember 2010 – Kleines Jubiläum, grosse Wirkung: Erst 30 Jahre sind vergangen, seit der erste Nierenstein-Patient erfolgreich mit Stosswellen behandelt wurde. Was als Experiment begann, hat sich seitdem zu einer Erfolgsgeschichte in der Medizin entwickelt. Patienten auf der ganzen Welt profitieren von der Behandlung mit Stosswellen. Das Spektrum der Anwendung ist dementsprechend weit: Ärzte setzen Stosswellen heute unter anderem in der Urologie, Orthopädie, Kardiologie, Dermatologie und Veterinärmedizin ein. Neue Forschungsergebnisse in den Bereichen Wundheilung und neurologische Erkrankungen weisen der Stosswelle einen festen Platz in der Behandlung weiterer Krankheitsbilder zu.
