Failed Skin Grafts And Flaps
A skin graft refers to skin transplanted onto a wound. A skin flap is a transplant that includes skin plus deeper tissues like muscle, blood vessels, and bone. To be successful, both skin grafts and flaps need a healthy, oxygenated transplant site. That’s where treatment with Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT) is beneficial to patients ahead of these surgeries.
HBOT is used to prepare the wound site before the transplant and to promote healing after the skin graft or flap transplant by increasing the flow of blood and oxygen to the affected area.
HBOT for Failed Skin Grafts and Flaps
HBOT helps prepare patients for skin grafts or skin flap surgery in the following ways:
- Prepares wound for transplant
- Increases healing
- Reduces recovery time
