Int J Dent Hyg. In the March issue of JOP. This is alleged to increase the oxygen supply to the body tissue and stop necrosis. In the advanced stage of disease, the femoral psteonecrosis can collapse, oteonecrosis that the hip joint needs to be either surgically stabilised or replaced by a prosthesis. We want to make additional comments on the treatment of patients with BRONJ and, particularly, on the potential role of hyperbaric oxygen therapy in these patients.

Use of platelet-rich plasma in the management of oral biphosphonate-associated osteonecrosis of the jaw: However, an increase in the reported incidence of BRONJ is expected with a wider recognition of the disease and the close follow-up of the patients using bisphosphonates.

Although this type of therapy has been tested for about 20 years, data only on about to patients yyperbaric been published worldwide. By applying HBOTthe aim is to prevent tissue necrosis by increasing the oxygen supply.

Comments could be submitted on this version up to 23 May Breadcrumb Press Press releases The benefit of hyperbaric oxygen therapy….

Hyperbaric oxygen therapy and osteonecrosis.

According to the diagnostic criteria defined by the American Association of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons, BRONJ is diagnosed in patients with a history of current or previous treatment with a bisphosphonate, with an exposed bone in the maxillofacial region which has continued for more than eight weeks, and with no history of radiation therapy to the jaw [ 3 ].

Pamidronate Aredia and zoledronate Zometa induced avascular necrosis of the jaws: Osteonecrosis of the jaws due to bisphosphonate use. They are widely used in the treatment of osteoporosis, skeletal lesions of multiple myeloma and bone metastasis of solid tumors. History, etiology, prevention, and treatment. Oral osteonecrosis associated with the use of zoledronic acid: Due to the complete lack of appropriate clinical trials, HBOT for osteonecrosis of the femoral head in adults should only be applied in a suitable clinical trial setting in order to obtain long-term reliable findings, according to the Institute.


Utility of hyperbaric oxygen in treatment of bisphosphonate-related osteonecrosis of the jaws.

A review of bisphosphonate-associated osteonecrosis of the jaws and its management. A number of papers have been published which describe the successful use of hyperbaric oxygen therapy in the management of BRONJ [ 891011 ]. The case presented by Smith et al.

After the paper by Marx et al. The cause of the idiopathic form of disease is unknown, unlike the cause of secondary or traumatic osteonecrosis of the femoral head. Overall, we believe that a multidisciplinary approach is fundamental for achieving a favorable outcome in patients with BRONJ. The final report was sent to the contracting agency, the German Federal Joint Committee, on 8 August As with carbonic acid in an unopened carbonated water bottle, due to the increase in pressure more oxygen dissolves into the blood plasma.

There are two ongoing randomized controlled trials which are testing the effectiveness of adjunctive hyperbaric oxygen therapy in the management of BRONJ [ 12 ]. Objections from ethics committees against direct clinical comparisons are also not to be expected, as HBOT has already been used for a long time and no dramatic effects are to be expected. As the comments produced no queries that needed to be discussed, IQWiG dispensed with an oral scientific debate.

Hyperbaric oxygen in addition to antibiotic therapy is effective for bisphosphonate-induced osteonecrosis of the jaw in a patient with multiple myeloma. The Institute therefore recommends applying HBOT in these patients only within the setting of clinical trials.

Journal of the Pancreas, Smith et al. Bisphosphonates are potent inhibitors of osteoclastic bone resorption and one of the most frequently prescribed drugs. However, in patients who are planning to undergo oral surgery, the interruption of bisphosphonates for 3 months or longer is recommended [ 5 ]. Since bisphosphonates remain in the bone for very long periods and some patients cannot survive without bisphosphonates, cessation of bisphosphonate treatment is not carried out in every patient.


Systemic antibiotics, an oral antimicrobial rinse and close follow-up are recommended for patients with asymptomatic oral lesions [ 3 ].

The benefit of hyperbaric oxygen therapy for osteonecrosis of the femoral head is not proven

J Oral Maxillofac Surg. Hyperbric, the disease is relatively often associated with alcohol or nicotine abuse. The proposed rationale behind the beneficial effects of hyperbaric oxygen therapy in BRONJ is increased wound healing, reduction of edema and inflammation, stem cell mobilization and moderation of the suppression of bone turnover by bisphosphonates [ 12 ].

As to the greater recognition of the relationship between the use of bisphosphonates and oral osteonecrosis, new ostenecrosis with different malignancies have been diagnosed as suffering from BRONJ.

In recent years, many papers have been published which shed light on the pathogenesis and clinical course of the disease. Hyperbaric oxygen therapy has been used in the treatment and prevention of osteoradionecrosis of the jaw for more than 30 years [ 7 ]. A review of 60 cases and treatment proposals. Utility of hyperbaric oxygen in treatment of bisphosphonate-related osteonecrosis of the jaws. The cumulative incidence of the disease has been reported to be between 0.

Journal of the Pancreas.

Given the widespread use of bisphosphonates in clinical practice, even a very low incidence of oral osteonecrosis in bisphosphonate users should be considered a public emergency. By increasing the ambient pressure, the amount of oxygen in the blood can be substantially increased.

Hyperbaric oxygen therapy is a way of treatment which increases the oxygen content of the blood and, consequently, the amount of oxygen delivered to tissues. Additional osteomecrosis publications that had not already been identified by IQWiG were not reported, either. In osteonecrosis of the hip or femoral head, part of the bone of the femoral head dies off.
