2 The Frac

3 The Frac, a four year old racehorse gelding initially presented with lameness Grade 3 out of 4 of the left front limb Severe pain to flexion and palpation Severe swelling Heat to the tendon area Edema in the tendon sheath area on palpation Initial Clinical Evaluation: The Frac

4 Ultrasound scan images showed a very severe disruption of the left superficial digital flexor tendon (SDFT) with 95% tendon lattice destruction.

5 Initial Clinical Evaluation: The Frac Lesions involved 95% of tendon tissue Multiple core lesions resembled a slice of Swiss Cheese Short Axis Ultrasonography

6 Diffuse multiple Lesions Superficial Digital Flexor Tendon Initial Clinical Evaluation: The Frac Long Axis Ultrasonography

7 Initial Clinical Evaluation: The Frac Followup care Hydrotherapy and icing twice daily Inflammation prophylaxis with Phenylbutazone 1 gm twice daily Cymatherapy ® Physical Exercise Program Stall rest for the first 30 days

8 SDFT core lesions greatly decreased in size Tendon cell density Fibrin deposition Collagen fibril formation Hypoechogenic healing of the SDFT First Followup Clinical Evaluation: The Frac Short Axis Ultrasonography Most improved zones 1A through 2B

9 Clinically Decrease in lameness from a Grade 3 to Grade 1-2 of 4 Decreased sensitivity to flexion and palpation Pain levels were decreased by 80% 70% decrease in swelling No more heat felt on palpation Some tissue thickening remaining First Followup Clinical Evaluation: The Frac

10 Followup care Hydrotherapy twice per day Cymatherapy ® every third day Physical Exercise Program Hand walking was increased to 15 minutes per day for the next 30 days First Followup Clinical Evaluation: The Frac

11 Short Axis Ultrasonography Ultrasound imaging showed A transition to a more uniform echogenicity in zones 1B and 2B Zones 3A and 3B were somewhat slower to heal than 1B and 2B Second Followup Clinical Evaluation: The Frac

12 The overall improvement was excellent In the primary lesion zone 3B the overall improvement was 50% Long Axis Ultrasonography Second Followup Clinical Evaluation: The Frac

13 Clinically No lameness at the walk No pain elicited during flexion or palpation No visible swelling No heat felt on palpation Second Followup Clinical Evaluation: The Frac

14 Followup care Hydrotherapy twice per day Cymatherapy ® every third day Physical Exercise Program Hand walking once per day Walking on the Hot Walker for minutes once per day –This stage of the rehabilitation program was followed for 25 days Second Followup Clinical Evaluation: The Frac

15 Ultrasound showed a uniform and normal echogenicity Complete reduction of the SDFT core lesions To a well defined tendon cell regeneration area Third Followup Clinical Evaluation: The Frac Short Axis Ultrasonography

16 Third Followup Clinical Evaluation: The Frac Long Axis Ultrasonography No evidence of prior SDFT lesions, scar tissue or adhesions Proper tendon cell-to-cell and collagen fiber alignment Fibrin and collagen filling indicative of an accelerated healing process

17 Third Followup Clinical Evaluation: The Frac Clinically No lameness at the walk or trot No pain elicited during flexion or palpation No visible swelling No heat felt on palpation

18 Third Followup Clinical Evaluation: The Frac Followup care Cymatherapy ® once per week until The Frac was sent off for training Physical Exercise Program Training was increased to light work on the track

19 Eighteen months after his last Cymatherapy ® session The Fracs healing success was clearly reflected in his win on Sunday, March 26, 2006 In a Starter Allowance At Oaklawn Park racetrack in Hot Springs, Arkansas With odds of 4-1 Running five and one half furlongs Evaluation: The Frac Not only did he win this race, he also had the fastest run of the meet!

20 Rarely Found

21 Initial Clinical Evaluation: Rarely Found Rarely Found, a racehorse colt initially presented with lameness Grade 3 out of 5 of the left front limb Pain to flexion and palpation Well defined swelling Heat to the tendon area Edema in the tendon sheath area on palpation

22 Initial Clinical Evaluation: Rarely Found Ultrasound scan images showed a 25 to 30% core lesion of the superficial digital flexor tendon (SDFT). The lesion was in the Zone 2 A and 2 B area. The SDFT core lesion was very concise.

23 A 25 to 30% SDFT core lesion Short Axis Ultrasonography Initial Clinical Evaluation: Rarely Found

24 The lesion was in the Zone 2A and 2B area Short Axis Ultrasonography Initial Clinical Evaluation: Rarely Found

25 Ultrasound showed a 50% improvement in lesion size Tendon cell density Fibrin deposition Collagen fibril formation A clear indication of the hypoechogenic healing First Followup Clinical Evaluation: Rarely Found Short Axis Ultrasonography

26 Followup care Hydrotherapy and icing daily Inflammation prophylaxis with one injection of hyaluronic acid into the core lesion and tendon sheath Cymatherapy ® Physical Exercise Program Stall rest with hand walking for 5 minutes for the first 30 days First Followup Clinical Evaluation: Rarely Found

27 Clinically Decrease in lameness from a Grade 3 to Grade 2 of 5 Decreased sensitivity to flexion and palpation No more heat felt on palpation First Followup Clinical Evaluation: Rarely Found

28 Followup care Hydrotherapy with cold hose treatment daily Cymatherapy ® Physical Exercise Program Hand walking was increased to 10 minutes per day for the next 30 days First Followup Clinical Evaluation: Rarely Found

29 Ultrasound showed a transition to a more uniform Echogenicity Complete reduction of the SDFT core lesion Second Followup Clinical Evaluation: Rarely Found Short Axis Ultrasonography

30 A well defined tendon cell area Fibrin and collagen filled Indicative of an accelerated healing process Short Axis Ultrasonography Second Followup Clinical Evaluation: Rarely Found

31 Clinically No lameness at the walk No pain elicited during flexion or palpation No visible swelling No heat felt on palpation

32 Followup care Cymatherapy ® three times per week Physical Exercise Program Hand walking minutes per day A light jog was also introduced successfully –This stage of the rehabilitation program was followed for 21 days Second Followup Clinical Evaluation: Rarely Found

33 Ultrasound showed a uniform, normal Echogenicity Complete reduction of the SDFT lesion A well defined tendon cell area No evidence of prior lesion Short Axis Ultrasonography Third Followup Clinical Evaluation: Rarely Found

34 Long Axis Ultrasonography Ultrasound showed Proper tendon cell-to-cell alignment Proper collagen fiber alignment No evidence of any prior SDFT lesion

35 Third Followup Clinical Evaluation: Rarely Found Clinically No lameness at the jog or gallop No pain elicited during flexion or palpation No visible swelling No heat felt on palpation even after the increase in physical activity in the jog or gallop

36 Followup care Cymatherapy ® once per week Physical Exercise Program Training was increased to one to 1.5 miles of jogging every day Third Followup Clinical Evaluation: Rarely Found

49 The Frac Every day for the first week Every other day for the second week Three times per week for one month Once per week until sent off to training Rarely Found Five times per week for the first 2 weeks Three times per week for 60 days Once per week thereafter Cymatherapy ® Schedules

50 Conclusions

51 In these exemplary case studies we have found A rapid rate of tendon healing Ultrasonographic evidence of normal and homogeneous tendon cell integrity after severe tendon injury Uniform and normal echogenicity with no evidence of prior injury or scar tissue

52 Healing time per ultrasonographic evidence with rapid return to function The Frac 54 days Rarely Found 43 days Cymatherapy ® has surpassed any standard veterinary treatment of the SDFT injured Horse by 5 to 22.5 months according to the literature Conclusions

53 The high quality of the homogeneous, healed, tendon tissue, per ultrasonographic evidence indicates Low to nil continued morbidity or threat of reinjury Cost savings in veterinary diagnostics, care, treatment and maintenance over time The preservation in value of the athletic horse That allows the horse owner a gainful return on their substantial financial investment Conclusions
