Determination of the energy-dependent extent of vascular damage caused by high-energy shock waves in an umbilical cord model

Steinbach, P. ; Hofstaedter, Ferdinand ; Nicolai, H. ; Roessler, W. ; Wieland, W.


To determine the spatial extent of shock-wave-induced vascular damage human umbilical cords were exposed to electromagnetically generated, focused ultrasound waves of different energy densities. During treatment macroscopically visible hematoma and superficial holes appeared. Following exposure specimens were fixed and examined histologically. In addition to vessel wall necrosis and rupture, ...
