Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy for Wound Dehiscence After Intraoral Bone Grafting in the Nonirradiated Patient: A Case Series

Purpose: In maxillofacial surgery, hyperbaric oxygen treatment is used almost exclusively as adjunctive therapy for osteoradionecrosis of the mandible in irradiated patients. It also is used to prevent the occur rence of osteoradionecrosis in the irradiated patient when dental surgery is indicated. Theoretically, hyper baric oxygen therapy should benefit the nonirradiated patient in maxillofacial surgery …

Efficacy of Adjunctive Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy in Osteoradionecrosis

AbstractOsteoradionecrosis (ORN) is a common consequence resulting from radiation in patients with cancer. Presently,hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT) is proposed to have a role in improving wound healing in ORN patients. Thereis no strong scientific evidence to confirm the benefits of HBOT for treatment of ORN as an adjunctive treatment.This study aimed to determine the benefits …

Hyperbaric oxygen therapy for late radiation tissue injury

BackgroundCancer is a significant global health problem. Radiotherapy is a treatment for many cancers and about 50% of people having radiotherapywill be long-term survivors. Some will experience late radiation tissue injury (LRTI) developing months or years later. Hyperbaric oxygentherapy (HBOT) has been suggested as a treatment for LRTI based upon the ability to improve the …

Strontium ranelate treatment in a postmenopausal woman with osteonecrosis of the jaw after long-term oral bisphosphonate administration: a case report

Abstract Bisphosphonates (BPs) suppress bone resorption and increase bone strength, thus reducing the risk of fracture. Oral BPs are widely used for the prevention and treatment of osteoporosis and osteopenia. Here, we describe the case of a postmenopausal woman who took oral alendronate for .3 years for osteoporosis. The patient presented at the clinic with …

Radiotherapy, osseointegration and hyperbaric oxygen therapy

Modern therapy of malignant tumors of the head and neck region is effective and more patients survive their cancer. The patients can, however, suffer from defects of the hard and soft tissues from cancer surgery. With the osseointegration concept, the possibility to rehabilitate these patients has increase tremendously.

Cervical Necrotizing Fasciitis of Odontogenic Origin and Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy

Abstract Necrotizing fasciitis (NF) is an infection of the soft tissues pathology with high mortality that spreads through the fascial planes and rarely seen in head and neck region. The cause of infection is often odontogenic problems. Broad-spectrum antibiotics, surgical debridement, and hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBO) are important for the treatment of disease. We report …
