ESWT and failed pf surgery

Posted by Dr. Z on 11/19/04 at 20:39 (164389)

Dr. ED, Dr Rompe, Sunny

I am doing some research on any studies that describe ESWT it use in failed pf surgery or achilles tendon surgery. I have used ESWT in specific cases where there have been failed foot surgery but I can't seen to locate many studies in this area. I believe there was a section on the Healthronic web site that talked about this but the site has been changed. Any help or comments would be appreciated

thanks

DR. Z

Dr. Z:
I am unawareof studies. I beleive that Sunny had mentioned that he prefers high energy after failed PF release surgery.

Dr. Ed,

I agree that high energy is the preferred approach. I did read one from the healthronic web site but the site is changed and it is removed.

John,
Just to make sure you understand my post. It should read you appear to have many sources for ESWT . I am hoping that you are a researcher. Do you have a literature that discusses the sucess of ESWT with post surgical pf failures
