We summarize indications, contraindications, and therapeutic guidelines for the use of adjunctive hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBO) in problem wounds and selected orthopaedic infections. Three typical cases that all were successfully treated with HBO are presented: a chronic osteomyelitis which was a sequela to an open tibia fracture, a second- and third-degree burn injury of the entire lower extremity, and a case of chronic osteomyelitis in an insulin-dependent diabetic.
