new therapy for PF

Posted by Kathy on 8/17/98 at 13:38 (001349)

There is a new therapy which has been used successfully in Germany called 'shock wave therapy' using an instrument called a lithotripter.
It's a procedure during which low energy shock wave blasts are administered to the point of pain. Is there anyone out there who has participated in any clinical trials in the United States or possibly received the treatment in Germany? I am very interested in hearing the details. I am considering this procedure as a last resort. Thanks.
