Background: The essential role of oxygen in wound healing is well documented, and recent developments in the delivery of topical oxygen therapy have made this a more viable treatment in practice. This article examines the role of topical oxygen – the NATROX® Oxygen Wound Therapy System in wound healing and looks at the impact of increased oxygenation on ulcer healing through a case series where the NATROX system was used in patients with ischemic foot ulcers. Materials and Methods: Topical oxygen therapy was evaluated in patients with ischemic foot ulcers in a tertiary referral specialist center. Results: During this case series of six patients, four patients had a complete healing before the study completion and two patients wounds were on a healing trajectory (average reduction in wound size of 60 %) during the follow-up, which eventually healed. Conclusion: NATROX® is an innovative topical oxygen delivery system that warranty further research to assess its potential impact on wound healing.
