Pulsed Electromagnetic Fields for Postoperative Pain: A Randomized Controlled Clinical Trial in Patients Undergoing Mandibular Third Molar Extraction

Pulsed Electromagnetic Fields for Postoperative Pain: A Randomized Controlled Clinical Trial in Patients Undergoing Mandibular Third Molar Extraction

Initiatives -
The aim of this randomized clinical trial was to assess the clinical efficacy of PEMF therapy delivered through a wearable device in terms of postoperative pain and quality of healing after mandibular third molar extraction (chosen as a good model of postoperative pain for the purpose of studying its analgesic efficacy). Note: All published information has been collected from the article referenced in the Marker Paper box below. Therefore, there may be variations with more advanced versions of the study.
