Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy in Treating a Poorly Healing Wound Following Cardiac Surgery in a Patient with Congenital Connective Tissue Defect – Case Report

Abstract

We hereby present the case of a female patient with recurrent aortic aneurysms. In order to treat aneurysms of the ascending aorta, aortic arch and aneurysms of the aortic arch branches, the debranching procedure was used. Following the surgery, a deep sternal wound infection occurred characterised by impaired healing. The infection was treated with targeted antibiotic therapy and hyperbaric oxygen therapy.
