infected arthroplasties
I get occasional consults for HBO for pts with infected (and retained) hip or knee prostheses, For one reason or another, they are not candidates for surgery to remove the hardware. Every time I review the data on this subset of pts, there is not much out there, the follow up is too short, and the results not very good. Anybody know of any quality trials either published or ongoing? 
My general response so far has been to decline the option of HBO.

Often they are comp flaps post operatively. Check a TCOM.
