Abstract

Hyperbaric oxygen (HBO) therapy is a supplemental treatment, in addition to the converntional approach, for patients with an underlying ischemic process. In Andrology, HBO is a therapeutic approach supplemental to surgical and medical options for some patients, mainly reported in the treatment of perineal necrotizing fasciitis (Fournier’s gangrene). There were also case reports of successful management using the HBO therapy for post-traumatic ischemic injury, infertility caused by varicocele, hydrocele, testicular torsion, and erectile dysfunction.
