In particular, the head of the orthopedics and traumatology department №1 NMAPE of P. L. Shupik, the honored worker of science and equipment of Ukraine, medical sciences doctor, professor Heinrich Ivanovich Hertsen made the report “Influence of the radial extracorporal shock-wave therapy (ESWT) on treatment of an experimental bone injury “. In the report it was told about influence of an acoustic (shock) wave on an organism during the injuried bone treatment. Feature of this research is that it was carried out on the basis of the SWT medical center «Awatage» using the Swiss equipment of Storz Medical firm. Firstly in Ukraine unique results of SWT influence on healing of bone injuries were received with the assistance of specialists of “Awatage” clinic. Discussion at a such high level among  orthopedists-traumatologists shows the high efficiency of a SWT method and a huge prospect in fracture treatment.
