Shock wave treatment induces angiogenesis and mobilizes endogenous cd31/cd34-positive endothelial cells in a hindlimb ischemia model: implications for angiogenesis and vasculogenesis

Shock waves have been shown to induce recruitment of intravenously injected endothelial progenitor cells to ischemic hind limbs in rats. We hypothesized that shock wave treatment as sole therapy would induce angiogenesis in this ischemia model and would lead to mobilization of endogenous endothelial (progenitor) cells.
