Substantial evidence exists to show the positive effects of radialextracorporeal shock wave therapy (ESWT) on bone formation. However, it is unknown whether rESWT can act locally at the growth plate level to stimulate linear bone growth. One way to achieve this is to stimulate chondrogenesis in the growth plate without depending on circulating systemic growth factors. We wished to see whether rESWT would stimulate metatarsal rat growth plates in the absence of vascularity and associated systemic growth factors.

The growth and development of bones from fetus to adult. It includes two principal mechanisms of bone growth: growth in length of long bones at the epiphyseal cartilages and growth in thickness by depositing new bone (OSTEOGENESIS) with the actions of OSTEOBLASTS and OSTEOCLASTS.
A cytokine produced by bone marrow stromal cells that promotes the growth of B-LYMPHOCYTE precursors and is co-mitogenic with INTERLEUKIN-2 for mature T-LYMPHOCYTE activation.
Sudden, violent, and often destructive expansion of gases which propagates energy outward, such as a shock wave, ejecting fragments and debris at high velocities.
Disease involving the RADIAL NERVE. Clinical features include weakness of elbow extension, elbow flexion, supination of the forearm, wrist and finger extension, and thumb abduction. Sensation may be impaired over regions of the dorsal forearm. Common sites of compression or traumatic injury include the AXILLA and radial groove of the HUMERUS.
