Hyperbaric oxygen improves growth factors following tissue transplantation
December 10, 2013
Growth factors of blood vessels to transplanted areas are important and key factors for successful procedures. Hyperbaric oxygen therapy has been long-used for wound healing due to its ability to increase blood vessels to the area. This study looked at applying hyperbaric oxygen therapy following tissue implantation. The observed growth factors, including vascular endothelial growth factor, were shown to increase and support the notion that hyperbaric therapy can be used to enhance implantation procedures.
