Renal hematoma as a complication of extracorporeal shock wave
Dating back over 30 years, shock wave
was first used as a more effective and less invasive form for breaking up kidney stones in people (lithotripsy) and later for the treatment of plantar fasciitis, tendonitis and tennis elbow.
5), it forms the shock and produces the reflected wave first and starts to propagate as a shock wave
with a decrease in its amplitude.
2009) was used in calculating the pressure profiles before and after a shock wave
0] is the undisturbed density ahead of the shock wave
This volume collects 60 papers from the March 2007 Second International Symposium on Explosion, Shock Wave
and Hypervelocity Phenomena in Materials, organized by the Kumamoto University's (Japan) Shock Wave
and Condensed Matter Research Center, 21st Century COE Program on Pulsed Power Science, and Faculty of Engineering in cooperation with Japan Explosive Society's Technical Section of Explosion and Impulsive Processing and the Japan Society for Technology of Plasticity's Committee of the High-Energy-Rate Forming.
The sharp release of pressure, after the buildup by the shock wave
, is heard as the sonic boom.
Ching-Jen Wang (Kaoshiung, Taiwan) demonstrated a "biological response" to shock wave
therapy - various proteins responsible for healing processes ("growth factors") are created, which cause an increased integration of newly formed blood vessels as well as new growth of tissue, thereby triggering the healing process - better circulation of the myocardial muscle, new bone formation and formation of new skin on lesions.
Extracorporeal shock wave
therapy breaks up and removes calcification deposits through primary and secondary processes.
That information will help launch a clinical trial, which may revamp standard shock wave
lithotripsy protocols or lead to the development of drugs that can enhance the constriction to reduce the number of shocks administered.
LSP uses a high-energy laser pulse to impart an intense shock wave
into the surface of metal parts, generating compressive stresses, which greatly improve fatigue properties and toughness.
A doctoral thesis under Hans Bleich at Columbia University presented the first analytic solution to the problem of a shock wave
impinging on a floating structure, which serves as a necessary first benchmark for software developers to test the accuracy of their implementation of the fluid-structure interaction of shock waves
with floating structures.
