Mb. Burger is a disease of small and middle size arteries and veins of extremities. It is most common in male smokers. The leading symptom is pain in arms and legs, cyanosis and feeling of cold in fingers and toes. In more severe cases, necrosis and gangrene are a complication.

HBOT increases partial pressure of oxygen in ischemic/hypoxic tissues, lessens tissue damage and necrosis and the size of pathological changes, stimulates wound healing and lessens pain. In case of gangrenous changes, enhances formation of demarcation line between dead and vital tissue, thus helps defining a decision about the level of an amputation.
