Extracorporeal shockwave treatment: A novel tool to improve Schwann cell isolation and culture

(​AUVA Research Center, Ludwig Boltzmann Institute for Experimental and Clinical Traumatology,Vienna, Austria, 2 Austrian Cluster for Tissue Regeneration,Vienna, Austria, and 3 Department of Biochemical Engineering, University of Applied Sciences TechnikumWien,Vienna, Austria) – As new approaches for peripheral nerve regeneration are sought, there is an increasing demand for native Schwann cells for in vitro testing and/or reimplantation. Extracorporeal shockwave treatment (ESWT) is an emergent technology in the field of regenerative medicine that has also recently been shown to improve peripheral nerve regeneration. Methods. In this study, we elucidate the effects of ESWT on Schwann cell isolation and culture.
