HBO for treatment of coronary atherosclerosis
Only animal studies have been produced so far but indications are that HBO may be useful where a CT scan shows surgical possibilities are limited.
HBO may be an alternative to stenting or bypass surgery in certain cases. It appears that a 20 to 30 treatment regime is required.
There are already several human studies with promising results - an exciting area!
HBO may improve outcomes of other treatments and the Trust believes further research is required in this area.
