Hyperbaric Oxygen Alleviates Experimental (Spinal Cord) Injury by Downregulating HMGB1/NF-κB Expression

This study presented an insight into the effect of hyperbaric oxygen (HBO) on spinal cord injury (SCI), aiming to uncover the dynamics of high-mobility group protein B1 (HMGB1) and nuclear factor κB (NF-κB) after HBO intervention in rats with acute SCI. Objective. Prognosis of SCI is directly linked with the control of secondary injury, in…

The Treatment of Perioperative Spinal Cord Injury With Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy

This study describes a potential novel application of hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT) in the successful treatment of a postoperative spinal cord injury. A 68-year-old man presented with an acute spinal cord injury (ASIA impairment scale D), on the background of degenerative lower thoracic and lumbar canal stenosis. He underwent emergent decompression and instrumented fusion (T9–L5),…
