Abstract

The purpose of this report is to explore possible therapeutic use of hyperbaric oxygen (HBO(2)) technology on renal and urogenital diseases. HBO(2) reduces inflammation, immunity and inflammatory cytokines, stimulates wound repair and angioneogenesis, maintains tissue oxygenation, increases antioxidant enzymes and heals tissue hypoxia and radionecrosis. A literature review of peer-reviewed articles that address HBO(2), genitourological diseases, renal disease, and dialysis was performed. The paper reviews complications of renal diseases, dialysis, clinical applications of HBO(2), and effect of HBO(2) on renal and urogenital diseases. HBO(2) was used successfully to treat calcific uraemic arteriolopathy, and in many cases of acute renal failure. This technique is particularly useful in the treatment of intractable haemorrhagic cystitis secondary to pelvic radiation therapy and Fournier's gangrene. Clearly HBO(2) might play a role in the management of urogenital diseases, urinary bladder dysfunction and diseases, testicular pathology, renal diseases, and post-traumatic ischaemic injury and/or impaired wound healing and infections. The possible role of HBO(2) for autoimmune diseases, uraemic osteodystrophy or neuropathy due to chr...Continue Reading

Autoimmune Diseases

Autoimmune diseases occur as a result of an attack by the immune system on the body’s own tissues resulting in damage and dysfunction. There are different types of autoimmune diseases, in which there is a complex and unknown interaction between genetics and the environment. Discover the latest research on autoimmune diseases here.
