- 10 horses without health problems
- Superficial digital flexor tendinitis was induced in both front limbs by collagenase injections
- Right front limb of each horse was treated with ESWT (3 treatments, 3-week intervals) while left front limb remained control.
- Biopsy specimens were collected on 120th day
Results: ESWT improved scar remodeling and tendon wound collagen maturation.
