Extracorporeal Shockwave Therapy Increases Growth Factor Release from Equine Platelet-Rich Plasma In Vitro

Authored by: Kathryn A. Seabaugh1,2*, Merrilee Thoresen2,3 and Steeve Giguère2 1 Department of Clinical Sciences, on Friday, December 1, 2017

Extracorporeal shockwave therapy (ESWT) and platelet-rich plasma (PRP) are common treatments for soft tissue injuries in horses. Shockwave triggers cell specific responses to promote healing. Growth factors released from PRP also promote healing. It has been hypothesized that greater growth factor release would amplify the healing process. The combination of ESWT and PRP could promote healing in injured tendons and ligaments in the horse. The objective of this study was to determine if application of shockwaves to PRP samples increases the concentration of transforming growth factor-β1 (TGF-β1) and platelet-derived growth factor ββ (PDGF-ββ) released from the platelets in vitro.

Extracorporeal Shock Wave Therapy for Treatment of Navicular Syndrome

Authored by: Scott McClure, DVM, PhD; Richard B. Evans, PhD; Kristina G. Miles, DVM; Eric L. Reinertson, DVM, MS; on Friday, December 31, 2004

Extracorporeal shock wave therapy was effective in decreasing the lameness associated with navicular syndrome in 81% of the horses as determined by an unmasked evaluator and in 56% of the horses with masked evaluators.

THE EFFECTS OF EXTRACORPOREAL SHOCK-WAVE THERAPY ON THE ULTRASONOGRAPHIC AND HISTOLOGIC APPEARANCE OF COLLAGENASE-INDUCED EQUINE FORELIMB SUSPENSORY LIGAMENT DESMITIS

Authored by: S. R. MCCLURE,** D. VANSICKLE, ‡ R. EVANS, † E. L. REINERTSON* and L. MORAN* on Friday, December 31, 2004

Abstract—Extracorporeal shock-wave therapy (ESWT) may stimulate healing of desmitis in multiple species. The objective of this study was to evaluate the ultrasonographic and histologic appearance of collagenase-induced suspensory ligament (SUL) desmitis in untreated ligaments and ligaments treated with ESWT in horses
