The first study tested preoperative hyperbaric oxygen against conventional penicillin cover in a randomized study of 74 patients requiring dental extraction following radical mandibular irradiation.38 Only 5.4% of the patients in the hyperbaric oxygen group, compared with 30% of the patients in the penicillin-treated group, experienced failure of wound healing 6 months after surgery (P<0.05).
