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.

Mentions: One month after the end of treatment, a further ultrasound scan was taken to check adipose thickness, which had been reduced from 35.8 to 21 mm (Figs. 3, 4), clinically evident as increased softness at palpation. The patient reported less pain and increased hours of sleep. The treatment was well accepted by the patient, because of the absence of anesthesia, pain and scarring, noninvasivity, and feasibility in a medical office.
