treatment protocol for ORN when additional extractions are needed
We have a patient who is status post jaw-resection 5 years ago secondary to ORN after extractions were performed without the benefit of HBOT.  He was referred to our facility in 2009 for ORN and responded well with HBOT.  He now needs 9 teeth to be extracted.  I am having trouble finding a recommendation if he should have only 10 post-op sessions or if he should complete the Marx protocol with 20 pre and 10 post?  Any suggestions?

We are currently diving a patient under the Marx protocol 20/10. This particular patient was with us about a year ago (or slightly more) for the same diagnosis and completed the entire 20/10 Marx protocol then as well. This is the plan of care both her physicians felt would be most beneficial. I am not sure how other clinics may handle this scenario. Just sharing our recent experience.
