The effects of hyperbaric oxygen treatment on the healing of tracheal anastomosis following irradiation in rats.

Abstract

BACKGROUND After tracheal resection and end-to-end anastomosis, granulation tissue formation and stenosis along the anastomotic line are major problems. This experimental study in rats evaluated the effects of hyperbaric oxygen therapy on the healing of tracheal anastomosis after irradiation. METHODS Forty-four rats were divided into four groups: Group I… (More)
