very interesting topic about wound healing by using TOT. I see many patients w/ surgery wound, calcification etc. on daily bases. I haven't seen TOT yet in my practice, but I think the article helps me expand my knowledge about wound care. Thx

I would be interested in knowing if this has been done without the parental nutrition. Is the TPN causing or a significant part of the improved healing or were the gentlemen already on TPN without healing. Without that information it is hard to know if the oxygen or the TPN was the significant contributor.
