01/01/2006 - "Included with this article is historical and explanatory information about iontophoresis and phonophoresis, as well as formulations and case reports related to the treatment of sports-related injuries. "
01/01/2006 - "Iontophoresis and phonophoresis offer substantial benefits for the transdermal delivery of these medications and can be valuable additions to existing treatment modalities for minor sports-related injuries. "
01/01/2004 - "The developed method of prophylactics and treatment of pyo-inflammatory complications in the wound after operation of appendectomy with the help of mid-frequency ultrasound with dioxidin as phonophoresis allows to make suppurations in the postoperative patients 5.15 times rarer and the number of pyo-inflammatory complications 6.68 times rarer. "
06/01/1995 - "This research review indicates that to maximize the clinical effectiveness of phonophoresis: (1) the topical drug (both the drug and the carrying agent) should transmit US; (2) the skin should be pretreated with US, heating, moistening, or shaving; (3) the patient needs to be positioned to maximize circulation during treatment; (4) a dressing that seals the area and prevents the escape of moisture should be applied after treatment; (5) an intensity of 1.5 W/cm2 should be used to capture both the thermal and nonthermal effects of the US; and (6) low-intensity US (0.5 W/cm2) should be used when treating open wounds or acute injuries.
