Effect of targeted pulsed electromagnetic field therapy on canine post-operative hemilaminectomy: a double-blind, randomized, placebo-controlled clinical trial.
Assisi Animal Health is pleased to share with the veterinary community, the publication of results by the Journal of the American Animal Hospital Association (JAAHA) from an independently conducted study. The trial was completed at The Animal Medical Center, New York, under the direction of Leilani Alvarez, DVM, DACVSMR. The trial, which evaluated the Assisi Loop® as the therapeutic agent, demonstrated statistically significant improved wound healing scores 6 weeks post-operatively. Of particular note is the nearly 50% reduced opioid use in the actively treated subjects.
The abstract of the study was awarded 1st place by the American College of Veterinary Sports Medicine and Rehabilitation (ACVSMR) in the category of canine research, and was presented at ACVS on October 26th 2018. Abstract details are now available on the Assisi Animal Health website (www.assisianimalhealth.com) on the research page. Publication of the study is in the March-April issue of JAAHA: https://jaaha.org/doi/abs/10.5326/JAAHA-MS-6798
