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 …

The Effect of Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy on Erectile Functions: A Prospective Clinical Study

AbstractIntroduction: We aimed to evaluate the effects of hyperbar ic oxygen therapy (HBOT) on erectile function in patients  who had no cavernosal or urethral injury by using Interna tional Index of Erectile Function (IIEF) questionnaire. Materi als and Methods: The male patients who were treated by HBOT for several diseases between July 2017 and September …

Hyperbaric oxygen therapy for painful bladder syndrome/interstitial cystitis resistant to conventional treatments: long-term results of a case series in Japan

AbstractBackground: There is no confirmed strategy for treating painful bladder syndrome/interstitial cystitis (PBS/IC) withunclear etiology. Therefore, a pilot study was carried out to evaluate the efficacy and safety of hyperbaric oxygen(HBO) therapy in treatment-resistant PBS/IC patients.Methods: HBO treatment (2.0 ATA for 60 minutes/day × 5 days/week for 2 or 4 weeks) was performed on 11patients …

HYPERBARIC OXYGEN TREATMENT OF CHRONIC REFRACTORY RADIATION PROCTITIS: A RANDOMIZED AND CONTROLLED DOUBLE-BLIND CROSSOVER TRIAL WITH LONG-TERM FOLLOW-UP

Purpose: Cancer patients who undergo radiotherapy remain at life-long risk of radiation-induced injury to normaltissues. We conducted a randomized, controlled, double-blind crossover trial with long-term follow-up to evaluatethe effectiveness of hyperbaric oxygen for refractory radiation proctitis.Methods and Materials: Patients with refractory radiation proctitis were randomized to hyperbaric oxygen at2.0 atmospheres absolute (Group 1) or air …

HYPERBARIC OXYGEN THERAPY FOR LATE SEQUELAE IN WOME

Purpose: Persisting symptomatology after breast-conserving surgery and radiation is frequently reported. Inmost cases, symptoms in the breast resolve without further treatment. In some instances, however, pain,erythema, and edema can persist for years and can impact the patient’s quality of life. Hyperbaric oxygentherapy was shown to be effective as treatment for late radiation sequelae. The objective …

Hyperbaric oxygen therapy for radiation cystitis after pelvic radiotherapy: Systematic review of the recent literature

Abstract: The present study assessed the efficacy of hyperbaric oxygen therapy in reducing symptoms of radiation cystitis, a specific type of iatrogenic injury to the bladder, by systematic review of recent literature. The MEDLINE, Embase and Web of Science databases were searched using combinations of the terms “radiation,” “cystitis” and “hyperbaric oxygen” to identify articles …

Radiation-induced cystitis treated with hyperbaric oxygen therapy (RICH-ART): a randomised, controlled, phase 2–3 trial

Background Late radiation cystitis is an adverse effect of cancer treatment with radiotherapy in the pelvic region. Symptoms of late radiation cystitis can be assessed with the Expanded Prostate Index Composite Score (EPIC). Previous reports indicate that hyperbaric oxygen therapy reduces symptoms from late radiation cystitis, but the evidence is predominantly based on non-randomised and retrospective studies. …
