Successful treatment of nonunions with orthogold280

A pseudarthrosis is defined as a false joint that emerged from a non-healing fracture. It manifests itself if healing of a fracture has not been achieved within six months after a fracture. Non-unions occur in 5 to 10 % of all fracture patients. They are usually very painful and limit the mobility of the person affected.

The current standard of care for the treatment of pseudarthrosis comprises debridement of the pseudarthrotic tissue, cleaning of the fragment edges, insertion of autologous cancellous bone and stabilization with osteosynthetic material. However, these surgical procedures are very costly, they are time consuming, are associated with a high complication rate and, most concerning, extremely traumatic for the patient.

Consequently, there is a high interest for a non-invasive, effective and efficient treatment alternative for pseudarthrosis. Spark Wave Therapy with orthogold280 represents an exceptional treatment alternative.
