Electrostimulation devices are widely used for various ailments. I wonder if there is any ongoing research for electrostimulation to heal an inguinal hernia?

Electrostimulation of healing abdominal incisional hernias by low frequency, bipolar, symmetrical rectangular pulses. An experimental study.

Franke A1, Reding R, Tessmann D.
Author information
Abstract
A total of 107 male Wistar rats had abdominal hernias repaired (3 weeks after they had been artificially induced) by a two layer closure of the abdominal wall--the Mayo technique. The wounds of 56 rats were subjected to constant stimulation by an electric flow field. An implanted stimulation unit provided a low frequency (0.87 Hz), bipolar, symmetrical rectangular pulsed current (+/- 25 microA). A control group were given units that did not transmit current. In 39 of the 51 animals in the control group the muscle margins of the abdominal scars separated by between 1 and 5 mm. The scars of the electrostimulated animals were distinguished histologically by early formation of fibroblasts and deposition of collagen and the rapid maturation and longitudinal alignment of the collagen fibres. 46 of 56 of these scars were not separated. This technique may have a clinical application as adjuvant treatment for relapses of incisional hernias.

This is good stuff rancher thanks. There seems to be a lot of research into this field. Even healing a wound wirelessly.

Here is one paper published only 3 - years ago.

With 600,000 inguinal hernia surgeries performed annually someone may have already perfected an electrostimulation technique to heal the wound. All someone has to do is dig deeply online until this technique can be either found or replicated.

Aristotle greetings, I have a TEMS, I thinks it's called I got years ago and used on an injury to my leg. I don't know if that the same sort of thing. It contracts the muscles and the duration of the pulse can be timed. Maybe not the same thing.

Richard

Well, reading that again maybe it is similar.

Hi Richard,

What is your conclusion about the TEMS? Did it heal the leg injury?

Thanks,

A
