Hyperbaric Oxygen Treatments for
Soft Tissue Radionecrosis – Left Breast
The patient, a 39-year old female, was diagnosed with high-risk breast carcinoma and elected to undergo bilateral mastectomies with reconstruction. Because of previous breast reduction surgery at age 16 and scar revision, she required a transverse rectus abdominis myocutaneous (TRAM) flap. Post surgery, she was noted to have blisters and necrosis of the skin. She was referred to HyOx Medical Treatment Center to heal her breast wounds. The patient participated in 52 hyperbaric oxygen treatments from 4/28/2010 to 7/30/2010.
Result: Healing and pain resolution.
