Abstract

Hyperbaric oxygen is an adjunctive treatment for promoting wound healing and reducing infection. We present an unusual case of wound tissue necrosis occurring after external dacryocystorhinostomy (ExtDCR) that was subsequently treated with hyperbaric oxygen (HBO) and advancement flaps with good outcome. HBO improves vascularization of ischemic tissues after ExtDCR for greater success after reconstructive surgery.
