Abstract

Diabetes-related foot ulcers are common and disabling, and they frequently result in leg amputation. The death rate is high, and ulcers that have previously healed often recur. Foot ulcers have a complex aetiology and a wide spectrum of clinical manifestations, necessitating early expert evaluation. Despite treatment, ulcers can readily evolve into chronic sores. HBOT (hyperbaric oxygen therapy) is a sort of treatment that helps DFU's (Diabetic foot ulcer) repair serious wounds faster and prevent recurrence of ulcers. Which is due to increased oxygen availability in the tissues by breathing 100% oxygen under higher atmospheric pressure. HBOT-mediated increase in tissue oxygen availability have been shown to promote angiogenesis and granulation tissue development through improved fibroblast function, as well as infection control in wounds through improved leukocyte function. This review supports the idea that HBO enhances healing in DFU patients and reduces severe amputation. Careful implementation of HBO treatment could improve the long-term quality of life of patients treated with it.

Keywords: DFU's (Diabetic foot ulcer), HBOT (hyperbaric oxygen therapy), Oxygen availability, Amputation, recurrence.
