1 Case Studies The Efficacy of Cymatherapy® Bioresonance
on Core Lesions of the Superficial Digital Flexor Tendon in Thoroughbred Racehorses Case Studies Copyright  2006 Elizabeth Bauer. All Rights Reserved.

2 The Frac

3 Initial Clinical Evaluation: The Frac
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

4 Initial Clinical Evaluation: The Frac
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 Initial Clinical Evaluation: The Frac
Diffuse multiple Lesions Superficial Digital Flexor Tendon 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 First Followup Clinical Evaluation: The Frac
SDFT core lesions greatly decreased in size Tendon cell density Fibrin deposition Collagen fibril formation Hypoechogenic healing of the SDFT Short Axis Ultrasonography 7-1-04 Most improved zones 1A through 2B

9 First Followup Clinical Evaluation: The Frac
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

10 First Followup Clinical Evaluation: The Frac
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

11 Second Followup Clinical Evaluation: The Frac
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 Short Axis Ultrasonography

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

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

14 Second Followup Clinical Evaluation: The Frac
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

15 Third Followup Clinical Evaluation: The Frac
Ultrasound showed a uniform and normal echogenicity Complete reduction of the SDFT core lesions To a well defined tendon cell regeneration area Short Axis Ultrasonography 8-9-04

16 Third Followup Clinical Evaluation: The Frac
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 Long Axis Ultrasonography 8-9-04

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 Evaluation: The Frac Eighteen months after his last Cymatherapy®
session The Frac’s 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 Not only did he win this race, he also had the fastest run of the meet!

20 Rarely Found

23 Initial Clinical Evaluation: Rarely Found
A 25 to 30% SDFT core lesion Short Axis Ultrasonography 4-9-04

The lesion was in the Zone 2A and 2B area Short Axis Ultrasonography 4-9-04

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

26 First Followup Clinical Evaluation: Rarely Found
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

27 First Followup Clinical Evaluation: Rarely Found
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

28 First Followup Clinical Evaluation: Rarely Found
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

29 Second Followup Clinical Evaluation: Rarely Found

49 Cymatherapy® Schedules
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

50 Conclusions

51 Conclusions 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 Conclusions 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

53 Conclusions 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
