Abstract

Background. Mediastinitis is a dreaded complication of cardiac surgical procedures. The purpose of our study was to research the role of hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBO) in the treatment of experimental mediastinitis and to investigate whether it potentiates the antibiotic effects of linezolid, teicoplanin, and vancomycin.
