Tissue grafts and flaps are used to reconstruct wound from Trauma, disease, tumors, burn, infections and prior surgeries. Despite careful planning and execution failure can occur for a variety of reasons resulting tissue loss, additional surgeries and negative physiological effects.
HBOT has demonstrated the ability to salvage compromised grafts and flaps.
- Increases oxygen to grafted tissue prolonging graft survival while blood supply is established
- Stimulates the growth of new blood vessels to ensure long term survival of tissue
