Retina and Vitreous Specialists New Orleans, Metairie, LA.

With the increasing popularity of facial filler injections, growing numbers of complications have been reported. We present the case of a 60-year-old female with vision changes and keratitis following hyaluronic acid (HA) facial filler injections who completely recovered following hyperbaric oxygen treatment (HBOT). Using HBOT to successfully treat ocular ischemia has been reported, but to our knowledge, our case is the first report of successful HBOT use for ocular ischemia and keratitis following cosmetic facial HA injection.

University of Toronto Department of Anesthesia, 177410, Hyperbaric medicine, Toronto, Ontario, Canada ;

Neuroplasticity and recovery after stroke can be enhanced by a rehabilitation program pertinent to upper limb motor function exercise and mental imagery (EMI) as well as hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT). We assessed the feasibility and safety of the combined approach utilizing both HBOT and EMI, and derived preliminary estimates of its efficacy. In this randomized controlled trial, twenty-seven patients with upper extremity hemiparesis 3-48 months after stroke were randomized to receive either a complementary rehabilitation program HBOT-EMI (intervention group), or EMI alone (control group).

HBO2 for sudden sensorineural hearing loss.

Undersea Hyperb Med 2020 Second Quarter;47(2):271-295

Clinical Professor, Section of Emergency Medicine, Louisiana State University, University Medical Center, New Orleans, Louisiana U.S.

Sudden sensorineural hearing loss (SSNHL) presents as an abrupt onset of hearing loss; 88% of these presentations are idiopathic (ISSHL). Many mechanisms of injury and etiopathologies have been postulated, but they share a common result - hypoxia of the organ of Corti leading to hair cell-cilia fusion, synaptic, dendritic swelling and sustained depolarization. Of all of the various treatments tried, only corticosteroids and hyperbaric oxygen (HBO2) therapy have shown benefit in randomized controlled trials (RCTs). Read More

A Supersaturated Oxygen Emulsion for Wound Care and Skin Rejuvenation.

J Drugs Dermatol 2020 Mar;19(3):250-253

Although oxygen is essential for proper wound healing, wounds are often hypoxic with diminished oxygen delivery to the healing tissue. Since oxygenation of the outer layers of skin is almost exclusively provided by the atmosphere, increasing the presence of external oxygen enhances the healing process. Hyperbaric oxygen therapy is beneficial for treating nonhealing wounds, such as diabetic ulcers, and has been used to speed post-treatment recovery following aesthetic procedures; however, it is not suitable for home use.

Methods: Prospective, randomized, trial involving 136 cases with unilateral ISSNHL that were randomly divided into 2 groups: the pharmacological treatment (P) group and HBO + pharmacological treatment (HBO+P) group, which received additional HBO for 14 days besides the pharmacological treatments. Pure tone audiometry gain larger than 15 dBHL was defined as success, and the success rate of each group was calculated. Read More

Comparing near infrared spectroscopy and transcutaneous oxygen measurement in hard-to-heal wounds: a pilot study.

J Wound Care 2020 Jun;29(Sup6):S4-S9

SerenaGroup Research Foundation, Cambridge, MA, US.

Objective: Oxygen plays an integral role in all phases of the wound healing process and tissue oxygenation is a key determinant of wound healing. A comprehensive evaluation of patients with hard-to-heal wounds must include measurement of oxygenation in and around the area of skin breakdown. The current gold standard, transcutaneous oxygen measurement (TCOM), has numerous drawbacks and as a result has fallen into disuse. Read More

Wound healing of metastatic perineal Crohn's disease using hyperbaric oxygen therapy: A case series.

United European Gastroenterol J 2020 Jun 12:2050640620934915. Epub 2020 Jun 12.

Department of Anaesthesiology/Hyperbaric Medicine, Amsterdam University Medical Centre, Location AMC, Amsterdam, The Netherlands.

Background: Metastatic Crohn's disease (CD) is a rare manifestation of CD. It involves inflammatory skin lesions with histopathological findings (granulomas) similar to CD, without connection to the gastrointestinal tract. Hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBO) has been suggested as a possible treatment option. Read More

Effects and mechanism of stem cells from human exfoliated deciduous teeth combined with hyperbaric oxygen therapy in type 2 diabetic rats.

Clinics (Sao Paulo) 2020 3;75:e1656. Epub 2020 Jun 3.

Department of Endocrinology, Changhai Hospital, the First Affiliated Hospital of the Naval Medical University, Shanghai 200433, China.

Objectives: Mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) are potentially ideal for type 2 diabetes treatment, owing to their multidirectional differentiation ability and immunomodulatory properties. Here we investigated whether the stem cells from human exfoliated deciduous teeth (SHED) in combination with hyperbaric oxygen (HBO) could treat type 2 diabetic rats, and explored the underlying mechanism.

Methods: SD rats were used to generate a type 2 diabetes model, which received stem cell therapy, HBO therapy, or both together. Read More

Hyperbaric oxygen therapy for radiation-induced tissue injury following sarcoma treatment: A retrospective analysis of a Dutch cohort.

PLoS One 2020 8;15(6):e0234419. Epub 2020 Jun 8.

Division of Surgical Oncology, Department of Surgery, University Medical Center Groningen, University of Groningen, Groningen, The Netherlands.

Background And Objectives: Sarcomas are commonly managed by surgical resection combined with radiotherapy. Sarcoma treatment is frequently complicated by chronic wounds and late radiation tissue injury (LRTI). This study aims to gain insight in the use and results of hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT) for radiation-induced complications following sarcoma treatment. Read More

Frequency-specific efficacy of intratympanic steroid on idiopathic sudden sensorineural hearing loss.

Acta Otolaryngol 2020 Jun 4:1-5. Epub 2020 Jun 4.

Department of Otorhinolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery, School of Medicine, University of Occupational and Environmental Health, Kitakyushu, Japan.

Hearing recovery would be different in each sound frequency in patients with idiopathic sudden sensorineural hearing loss (ISSNHL). To analyze frequency-specific efficacy of intratympanic steroid on ISSNHL. Of a total of 381 patients with ISSNHL (hearing threshold ≥40 dB; ≤30 days until treatment), 174 patients (174 ears) received systemic steroid plus hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBO group), and 207 patients (208 ears) received systemic plus intratympanic steroid (IT group).
