Extracorporeal Acoustic Wave Therapy and Multiple Symmetric Lipomatosis.

Scarpa C, Vindigni V, Bassetto F - Plast Reconstr Surg Glob Open (2015)

Bottom Line: Acoustic waves are mechanical waves recently used to activate tissue metabolism by exploiting the cell permeabilization caused by their passage.We report a case of a retroauricular lipoma in a 44-year-old woman affected by multiple symmetric lipomatosis and treated with extracorporeal acoustic wave therapy.The adipose thickness of the lipoma was reduced from 35.8 to 21 mm, with increased softness at palpatory examination.

ABSTRACT
Acoustic waves are mechanical waves recently used to activate tissue metabolism by exploiting the cell permeabilization caused by their passage. We report a case of a retroauricular lipoma in a 44-year-old woman affected by multiple symmetric lipomatosis and treated with extracorporeal acoustic wave therapy. The adipose thickness of the lipoma was reduced from 35.8 to 21 mm, with increased softness at palpatory examination.

Figure 2: Treatment with defocused EAWT.

Mentions: After informed consent, the lipoma was treated with EAWT (Cellactor SC1, Storz Medical, Switzerland) applying only the defocused planar handpiece once a week, for a total of 8 sessions (Fig. 2). The energy range was 0.09–0.27 mJ/mm2, with a consequent frequency of 5–3 Hz and a total number of pulses of 1200 per session.
