Failing or Failed Skin Grafts and Flaps
A skin graft refers to skin transplanted onto a wound. A skin flap is a transplant that includes skin plus deeper tissues like muscle, blood vessels. To be successful, both skin grafts and flaps need healthy, oxygenated tissue. If the initial graft or flap starts to fail, HBOT should be administered immediately and treated until the graft or flap is stable. (Usually 4-6 treatments)
In the event of a failed graft or flap and a second one is to be attempted; Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy is used to prepare the wound site before the transplant with 20 HBOT sessions and to promote healing after the skin graft or flap transplant with 10 more HBOT sessions to increase the flow of blood and oxygen to the affected area.
Our experienced clinical team is available to help you identify appropriate candidates for Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy and to answer any additional questions about HBOT or our facilities. You deserve the best – our mission is to achieve patient success through personalized, innovative, and compassionate care that enhances your healing potential. We do so at the lowest possible out-of-pocket cost for your patients, with only one copay and/or less coinsurance than at a hospital-based HBOT program.
