At our Hyperbaric Medical Clinic in Estepona we have seen very good results treating patients with radiation cystitis and their recovery has been significantly improved thanks to hyperbaric oxygen therapy.
Many people do not know what it is and why it occurs, so we wanted to explain it in today’s post.
Radiation cystitis or Radionecrosis of the bladder is inflammation and damage of the bladder caused by radiotherapy in the pelvic region. It is a complication of radiotherapy to treat prostate cancer or other organs in the pelvic area.
According to scientific studies, Hyperbaric Medicine is able to reverse the lesions caused by radiation cystitis. This has been shown in procedures such as cystoscopy, used to diagnose, control and treat conditions affecting the bladder and urethra.
Hyperbaric oxygen, administered in hyperbaric chambers, is used as a medication to treat the lesions produced by radiotherapy in soft tissues and bone.
There are also other excellent benefits of Hyperbaric Medicine after radiotherapy, which include:
1 – It improves the patient’s general state of health and quality of life.
2 – Reduces inflammation and offers pain relief.
3 – It makes urinating easier.
4 – Improvement of alkaline and prostatic phosphatase levels.
5 – Increased appetite.
6 – Longer life expectancy.
7 – It decreases bleeding.
