INTRODUCTION: The aim of this literature review was to determine the benefits of hyperbaric oxygen therapy after bone reconstruction procedures in humans and identify information that may be useful for the development of optimal protocols for hyperbaric oxygen therapy to stimulate bone healing.
EVIDENCE ACQUISITION: We searched the electronic database PubMed/Medline for studies published between January 1999 and December 2018, using the key words: “bone” or “bone graft” and “mandible reconstruction” or “jaw reconstruction” and “hyperbaric oxygen” or “HBO.” First, the titles and abstracts of the studies found were evaluated and those that corresponded to the aims of this review were pre-selected for analysis of the full text. Subsequently, the full texts were analyzed, and those that met the eligibility criteria were pre-selected for the review. The full texts of studies whose abstracts did not provide enough data for decision were also evaluated. Two examiners independently assessed eligibility, risk of bias and extracted data.
EVIDENCE SYNTHESIS: A total of 2237 studies were found according to pre-established criteria for data collection, of which only 5 studies were included in this systematic review. Although we observed positive results in the included studies, there are still few standardized clinical studies in the literature, assessing hyperbaric oxygen therapy after extensive bone reconstructive procedures.
CONCLUSIONS: It is difficult to compare results found in different studies due to the variety of methodological and clinical conditions assessed.
