“…ESWL uses acoustic shock waves to break apart mineral deposits such as in nephrolithiasis and calcific tendinitis. Recently, a prospective study of eight patients with calcinosis cutis associated with chronic venous insufficiency (n = 4), systemic sclerosis (n = 3), and dermatomyositis (n = 1) were treated with up to three ESWL sessions (70). A woman with limited cutaneous scleroderma and large ulcerations in the lower limbs secondary to calcinosis responded with a decrease in lesion size and healing of ulcerations after three ESWL treatments (68).…”

“…Electric shock wave lithotripsy is successful in treating calcinosis cutis associated with dermatomyositis, venous insufficiency and scleroderma with complete relieve of pain, although the reduction of the size of calcification was minimal [4,5].…”

“…Colchicine [87], NSAIDs, and local steroids can be used for local inflammation surrounding the calcinosis. Non-pharmacologic options include carbon dioxide laser [88] and extracorporeal shock wave lithotripsy [89] which have been suggested in small case series to reduce the calcinosis area and have an analgesic effect [89]. Surgery is reserved for large localized lesions but vasculopathy associated with SSc increases risk for poor wound healing.…”
