Introduction: This study was designed to determine if a) hyperbaric oxygen increases the tissue oxygenation of free flaps and b) verification of this effect is possible by using a recently validated and innovative method for two-dimensional pO2 measurement (Luminescence lifetime imaging = LLI).[for full text, please go to the a.m. URL]
