Abstract : This article reports on the results of 114 cases of surgical repair of peripheral nerve damage. Of these, 54 cases involving 65 nerves were given hyperbaric oxygen treatments following surgery. This article uses the other 60 cases as a control group, to explore the results of hyperbaric oxygen treatments for peripheral nerve damage. The excellent recovery rate for the hyperbaric oxygen treatment group was 89.2 percent and for the control group it was 73.2 percent (P< 0.05). In observing the recovery of different treatment methods, the average excellent recovery rate for the hyperbaric oxygen was higher than that of the control group, and the nerve transplant group excellent recovery rate was raised even higher to 24.9 percent (P < 0.05). In the results of the observation during the different types of recovery, in cases of emergency recovery., the two group treatment results were about the same. As time was extended, the excellent recovery rate of the hyperbaric oxygen treatment group tended to gradually increase over that of the control group.
