原始语种摘要: Dystrophic calcifications have been detected in the prostatic fossa, especially after de-obstructing procedures or radiotherapy for prostate cancer. These calcifications can be recalcitrant in patients with poor tissue healing. Hyperbaric Oxygen (HBO) therapy has multiple applications in urology but has not been reported as a treatment of recalcitrant dystrophic calcifications of the prostatic fossa or prostatic urethra. This article reviews the literature about HBO therapy and describes its successful use in 2 men with extensive, recalcitrant dystrophic calcifications of the prostatic fossa. The improvement in our patients may indicate a role for HBO therapy in these challenging cases
