ESWT AND DIABETES

Posted by Donald Iain Scott on 6/21/05 at 05:51 (177144)

I have just read an interesting article which may send ESWT into a new region of treatment. It is early days, and human studies are about to commence on the viable use of ESWT in healing ULCERS.

Dr. Scott,
Are you speaking about foot ulcers or stomach or both?

Ralph, given the title relating to Diabetes, he is probably referring to ulceration of the extremeties due to lack of blood flow. I've heard of research into this.

Don,
I saw some of the initial studies with ESWT and wound healing. The limits are endless !!!
