Susceptibility of Renal Cell Carcinoma (RCC 7860) to In Situ Extracorporeal Shock Wave Neoplasmotripsy
In vivo susceptibility of renal cell carcinoma (RCC 7860) to shock waves was examined in a series of experiments in an athymic rat model. Tumors were treated with 800 and 1,600 shock waves at 15 kV generated by the Dornier XL1 experimental lithotripter. Treated tumors demonstrated severe hemorrhage, infarct, necrosis, cellular infiltration, and a delay in tumor growth.
