In the article is presented the comparative estimate of the oxygen therapy methods in treatment of the deforming gonarthrosis. The new method of treatment is described, including 4-5 courses of hyperbaric oxygenation therapy at 1-1.5 atms during 50 min and intraarticular introduction of oxygen. 3 groups of patients have been singled out. The proposed method have been applied with 32 patients. It turned out to be more effective and the course of treatment shorter as compared with the known methods: with application of hyperbaric oxygenation without local introduction of oxygen and localized introduction of oxygen in the joint without application of hyperbaric oxygenation.
