Print

The patient, a 62-year-old white female with diabetes, was presented to HyOx with a failed flap in the right knee post total knee replacement.  The patient participated in 13 hyperbaric treatments from 3/29/06 through 4/21/06 (23 days).  End Result:  Although the prescribed treatment protocol was not met, the patient continued to show healing of her right knee. She was still showing some areas of eschar and biofilm over the suture sites. Otherwise, the wound has healed and she achieved a good active range of motion to the right knee.
