Hyperbaric oxygen therapy in Plastic Surgery practice: case series and literature overview

HBOT at pressures more than atmospheric. Several approved applicationsand indications exist for HBOT in the literature. Non-healingwounds, such as diabetic and vascular insufficiency ulcers, haveHBOT is also indicated for acute soft tissue infections like clostridial myone crosis, necrotising soft tissue infections, as also for traumatic wounds, crush injury, compartment syndrome, and compromised skin grafts and …

The Effects of Hyperbaric Oxygen Treatment on Oxidant and Antioxidants Levels during Liver Regeneration in Rats

The effects of hyperbaric oxygen (HBO) therapy on oxidant/antioxidant metabolism are controversial and its effects on hepatic regeneration are not known. In this study, we investigated a possible beneficial effect of HBO therapy on oxidant and antioxidants levels during liver regeneration. To conduct this study, seventy percent hepatectomy was performed on forty-eight Spraggue Dawley rats …

Histopathological evaluation of the effect of hyperbaric oxygen therapy on capsule occurrence around silicone breast prosthesis: an experimental study

ABSTRACTBackground: In general, capsular contracture is the underlying cause of complications such as pain, stiff ening, breast asymmetry, and animation deformity that are seen in the late postoperative period due to the use of silicone breast prostheses. Considering the positive effects of HBO therapy on wound healing,the objective of this study was to investigate the …

Hyperbaric Oxygen for Ischemia due to Injection of Cosmetic Fillers: Case Report and Issues

Summary: Natural and synthetic fillers have revolutionized aesthetic facial rejuve nation and soft-tissue augmentation. We present a case highlighting the dangers of filler self-injection. A 37-year-old woman self-injected a dermal filler around both temples. She immediately experienced left–side hearing loss, blanching over the left face, and pain. Prompt treatment with hyaluronidase, topical nitro paste, and warm compresses ensued. An …

Hyperbaric oxygen therapy accelerates osteoblast differentiation and promotes bone formation

Objectives: Hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBO) has been used as an adjunctive therapy in the treatment of radiotherapy or bisphosphonate-induced osteonecrosis of the jaw however the effect of HBO on osteoblast formation and mineralisation has not been extensively studied.The current study therefore examined the effects of HBO, elevated pressure or elevated oxygen alone on osteoblast differentiation …

Hyperbaric oxygen therapy ameliorates osteonecrosis in patients by modulating inflammation and oxidative stress

Early stages of avascular necrosis of the femoral head (AVNFH) can be conservatively treated with hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT). This study investigated how HBOT modulates inflammatory markers and reactiveoxygen species (ROS) in patients with AVNFH. Twenty-three male patients were treated with two cycles of HBOT, 30 sessions each with a 30 days break between cycles. …

Hyperbaric oxygen therapy improves the effect of keloid surgery and radiotherapy by reducing the recurrence rate*

Abstract: Objective: Keloids are exuberant cutaneous scars that form due to abnormal growth of fibrous tissue fol lowing an injury. The primary aim of this study was to assess the efficacy and mechanism of hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT) to reduce the keloid recurrence rate after surgical excision and radiotherapy. Methods: (1) A total of 240 …
