GONZALEZ DE LA PAZ, José E; MATUREL LORENZO, Joaquín  and  ULLOA ARIAS, Beatriz. Coadjuvant treatment with hyperbaric oxygenation of L5-S1lumbar disc herniation. Rev Cub Med Mil [online]. 2007, vol.36, n.4. ISSN 0138-6557.

A female patient with the diagnosis of disc herniation treated with hyperbaric oxygenation for 6 months was presented. 2.3 absolute atmospheres were applied with a time of isopressure of 50 min. She received 15 sessions of treatment, which were repeated at 3 and 6 months. The evolution of the patient was satisfactory, since the paravertebral pain and the neurological symptomatology were reduced.

Keywords : Isopressure; hyperbaric oxygenation; HBO.
