Shock wave therapy was one of the strong topics at the combined World Meeting on Sexual Medicine and European Society of Sexual Medicine in Lisbon, 2018. For those who could not participate we provide the overview at MTS Science.
There was an intensive discussion about the relevant application of energy and the most efficient protocol. Studies are difficult to compare, since only the energy flux density (mJ/mm2) of the devices but not the total focal volume is published. Several groups expressed the need of more information about the actual energy input.
Real-life user reports and applied basic research showed the efficacy of extracorporeal low-energy shock waves in the treatment of erectile dysfunction and chronic pelvic pain at the ISSM.
