Cellulite and Extracorporeal Shock Wave - a Randomized Trial

2014-08-27 03:20:29 | BioPortfolio


Hypothesis: The combination of extracorporeal shockwave and a daily gluteal muscle strength programme is superior to the gluteal muscle strength programme alone in cellulite.

Study design: Randomized-controlled trial

Analysis: Intention-to-treat

Outcome parameters: a) Photo, b) Nürnberger Score, c) circumference measurements, d) capillary blood flow, e) tissue oxygen saturation, f) postcapillary venous blood flow

Intervention: Extracorporeal shock wave for six sessions with 2000 impulses at both gluteal and thigh regions plus a specific gluteal strength exercise training

Follow-up: 12 weeks

Study Design

Allocation: Randomized, Control: Active Control, Endpoint Classification: Efficacy Study, Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment, Masking: Single Blind (Subject), Primary Purpose: Treatment




Extracorporeal shockwave therapy, Sham extracorporeal shock wave plus gluteal strength exercise

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A nonsurgical treatment that uses either HIGH-ENERGY SHOCK WAVES or low energy ACOUSTIC WAVES to treat various musculoskeletal conditions (e.g., PLANTAR FASCIITIS; TENNIS ELBOW). A probe placed on the skin conducts the shock waves thereby delivering a mechanical force to the body’s tissues.

A single-chain polypeptide derived from bovine tissues consisting of 58 amino-acid residues. It is an inhibitor of proteolytic enzymes including CHYMOTRYPSIN; KALLIKREIN; PLASMIN; and TRYPSIN. It is used in the treatment of HEMORRHAGE associated with raised plasma concentrations of plasmin. It is also used to reduce blood loss and transfusion requirements in patients at high risk of major blood loss during and following open heart surgery with EXTRACORPOREAL CIRCULATION. (Reynolds JEF(Ed): Martindale: The Extra Pharmacopoeia (electronic version). Micromedex, Inc, Englewood, CO, 1995)

Sudden, violent, and often destructive expansion of gases which propagates energy outward, such as a shock wave, ejecting fragments and debris at high velocities.

A family of heat-shock proteins that contain a 70 amino-acid consensus sequence known as the J domain. The J domain of HSP40 heat shock proteins interacts with HSP70 HEAT-SHOCK PROTEINS. HSP40 heat-shock proteins play a role in regulating the ADENOSINE TRIPHOSPHATASES activity of HSP70 heat-shock proteins.

The use of focused short radio waves to produce local hyperthermia in an injured person or diseased body area.
