Abstract

ABSTRACT: This study enrolled patients with stage 3 osteoradionecrosis. There were three treatment modalities: antibiotics, hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT), and surgery. Complete healing was the primary outcome. Multiple logistic regression analysis demonstrated that surgery with HBOT improved wound healing better than HBOT alone.
