From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Pulsed electromagnetic field therapy (PEMFT, or PEMF therapy), also known as low field magnetic stimulation (LFMS) uses electromagnetic fields in an attempt to heal non-union fractures and depression By 2007 the FDA had cleared several such stimulation devices.
In 2013 the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) warned a manufacturer for promoting the device for unapproved uses such as cerebral palsy and spinal cord injury.
Delayed- and non-union fractures
In the United States, PEMF exposure is an FDA-approved treatment of fracture nonunions. There is considerable clinical evidence to support the use of PEMF for fracture nonunions with reported healing rates for nonunions after PEMF stimulation between 73% and 85%
While PEMF therapy is claimed to offer some benefits in the treatment of fractures, the evidence is inconclusive and is insufficient to inform current clinical practice. PEMFs is generally not among the guidelines to treat bone and osteochondral defects. Notwithstanding, there is strong evidence for ELF-PEMF treatment. Pulsed Electromagnetic Fields promote the synthesis of skeletal extracellular matrix.
The physiologic process of the response of skeletal cells to PEMF is the synthesis of extracellular matrix structural and signaling molecules in the wound. The result of the signaling processes is to instruct skeletal cells to synthesize structural extracellular matrix and signaling molecules and enhance the ability of skeletal tissues to respond to changing physicochemical environments and biomechanical demands, and facilitate healing.
stimulated patients compared with controls was reported in fresh tibial fractures, and in femoral neck fractures.
