Objective: Distraction osteogenesis (DO) is widely used treatment for the bone deformities. In addition extracorporeal shock wave therapy (ESWT) is a new perspective on noninvasive modalities of management of the bone regeneration. We examined the effects of 2 different single doses of ESWT on the consolidation period of DO of the rabbit mandible using stereological, radiological and immunohistochemical methods in the present study.
