We present results of the assessment of the efficiency of hyperbaric oxygenation therapy in 104 patients with cerebrovascular diseases. Of these patients 32 had chronic cerebrovascular insufficiency and 72 showed transient disturbances of the cerebral circulation. A good effect was noted in 74 patients, a satisfactory one in 22, and a doubtful one in 8 patients. It is concluded from clinical, electrophysiological, psychophysiological, biochemical, and ophthalmoscopic examinations that hyperbaric oxygenation therapy is quite efficient when used as part of a combined therapy and as a means of prompt therapy of acute cerebrovascular crises. Observations over three to five years of patients repeatedly receiving the hyperbaric oxygenation therapy at 6 month intervals allows us to recommend it for the prevention of cerebral strokes.
