Abstract

We have examined the effects of high‐energy shock waves (HESW) on implanted urinary bladder cancer in rabbits. The bladder cancer was exposed to 2000 to 6000 shots of focused HESW under ultrasound guidance. Although only focal necrosis of the tumor was seen in the one‐day HESW exposure (2000 shots), wider and deeper necrosis was observed in the tumors following serial HESW (4000 or 6000 shots; 2 or 3 days). These results indicate that serial HESW exposure has destructive effects on implanted bladder cancer in rabbits.
