  • Radiation tissue damage (including osteoradionecrosis)
  • Preparation for tooth extraction or surgery in areas previously treated with radiation therapy

  • Air or gas embolism (from diving, indwelling catheters or laparoscopy)
  • Decompression sickness
  • Clostridial myonecrosis (gas gangrene)
  • Necrotizing soft tissue infections (subcutaneous tissue, muscle, fascia)
