Percutaneous hydrotomy combined with the use of EDTA
Mesochelation is the delivery of EDTA (Ethyl-Diamino-Tetra-Acetic acid) solutions by percutaneous hydrotomy according to a well-established protocol (mesodilution). In degenerative processes such as osteoarthritis, percutaneous hydrotomy and mesochelation act together on the aetio-physio-pathological process, through the following effects:
- Injectable localised osteoarticular hydration, targeting the degenerative lesion. In the future, validation of the use of trace elements, or even sea water, will be of real interest to practitioners.
- Mesochelation, thanks to its properties, can displace calcium from surrounding bones by ionization, transforming peripheral organic calcium into calcium ions (Ca2+).
Calcium is a real problem in the arthritic joint, where it causes particularly destructive mechanical stress on the joint.
This technique also allows locoregional detoxification by removal of heavy metals.
Osteoarthritis resulting from inappropriate calcium distribution at the bone level leads, on the one hand to osteoporosis in the bone, and on the other hand, to peripheral marginal osteophytes with radiological osteocondensation (see diagrams of lumbar and knee osteoarthritis; cervical bone spurs).
- Restoring micro-circulation halts the degenerative process caused by local deficits, resulting from the underlying disease state. E.g.: In osteoarthritis of the internal compartment of the knee, patients are often observed to have extensive varicose veins with a history of thrombosis and issues with obesity. Thus, hydrotomy and mesochelation represent new techniques which may improve a certain number of degenerative compressive processes (osteoarthritis) by acting locally on a number of essential parameters: microcirculation, hydration, nutrition and detoxification.
Consequently, these new techniques, hydrotomy and mesochelation, may improve a certain number of degenerative compressive processes (osteoarthritis) by acting locally on a number of essential parameters: microcirculation, hydration, nutrition and detoxification.
