Hyperbaric oxygen can induce angiogenesis and recover erectile function

Erectile dysfunction (ED) is caused by microvascular or macrovascular insufficiency in the majority of patients. Recent studies have shown that hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT) can induce angiogenesis in different body organs. The effect of HBOT on the non-surgery-related ED has not been investigated yet. The aim of the current study was to evaluate the effects …

Role of Mitochondria in the Oxidative Stress Induced by Electromagnetic Fields: Focus on Reproductive Systems

Modern technologies relying on wireless communication systems have brought increasing levels of electromagnetic field (EMF)exposure. This increased research interest in the effects of these radiations on human health. There is compelling evidence thatEMFs affect cell physiology by altering redox-related processes. Considering the importance of redox milieu in the biologicalcompetence of oocyte and sperm, we reviewed …

Remission of Endometriosis by Hyperbaric Oxygen Treatment in Rats

AbstractWe designed this prospective, randomized controlled animal study to determine the effects of hyperbaric oxygen (HBO) on experimentally induced endometriosis in a rat model. Surgical induction of endometriosis was performed in 40, nonpregnant, female, Wistar-Albino rats at the Experimental Medicine Research Center of Istanbul University (DETAE). Four weeks later, the first and second laparotomies for …

The effects of hyperbaric oxygen treatment on vigility of spermatozoids: preliminary report

The aim of this study was to evaluate the effect of hyperbaric oxygen treatment (HBO) to the vigilance of spermatozoids. The sperm samples were obtained from the patients (n=10) with diagnosed oligospermia. The motility of spermatozoids in tested samples was not lower than 30% but it did not exceed the critical proportion of 50%. Three groups …

& Abstract Endometrial sonographic and color doppler features can be used to predict the occurrence of pregnancy in natural or stiumlated cycles. Implatation will usually onlytake place if the endometrium has reach a certain stage of vascularisation and development. Th e aim of this study was to evaluate endometrial devalopment – endometrial thickness and refl ectivity , subendometrial, endometrial and uterine perfusion, after hyperbaric oxygenation, using transvaginal color doppler. During a three years period  women with unexplained infertil ity were entered into a randomised study. Th e patients were treated in multiplaced HAUX chamber at pressure of , ATA during  minutes,  days consecutively begining with day th of menstrual cycle.Th e evaluation of eff ects of hyperbaric oxygen therapy was carried out by transvaginal color doppler sonography which was continuously used starting from th day of menstrual cycle untyl the ovulation in the cycles when the therapy was applied , one month before and one month after the therapy. Folliculometry in the cycles when hyperbaric oxygen therapy at , ATA was applied, indicated an excellant response of endometrium. Th ickness of endometrium at the time of ovulation was , ± ,mm. Desirable quality of endometrium was signifi cantly better in the cycle when HBO therapy had been applied (p< ,). Th e doppler fl owmetry of the uterine arterys indicated that the uterine blood vassel resistance was slightly higher than expected. Mapping of subendometrial blood vessels in the cycles covered by hyperbaric oxygen therapy showed the intensive capillary network of en dometrium with low resisstance Ri< ,. Th e oxygen used under higher pressure – oxygen as a drug , may have an extraordinary signifi cance for better outcome of pregnancy implantation by improving endometrial receptivity. If endometrial receptivity is conditioned by adequate vascularisation and oxygenation, then hyperbaric oxygen therapy is the treatment of choice.

Improvement in Serum Anti-Müllerian Hormone Levels in Infertile Patients after Hyperbaric Oxygen (preliminary results)

Abstract OBJECTIVE: To assess whether hyperbaric oxygen sessions elevate serum levels of anti-Müllerian hormone (AMH) in patients diagnosed with infertility with serum levels of less than or equal to 1 ng/dl AMH. METHODS: A study was performed on 4 patients diagnosed with infertility. Serum AMH level was measured at the beginning and end of hyperbaric oxygen sessions, and endometrial thickness was measured on endometrial cycle day 14 before and during the hyperbaric oxygen sessions. RESULTS: In two of …
