The prognosis of gas gangrene is changing as the means of treatment become more accurate and are implemented earlier. The authors, in their work referring to 10 cases of gas gangrene, point out to the extreme fastness of debridement and immediate exeresis, of wide-spectrum antibiotic protection and of caloric balance, associated to a treatment using trace elements. The importance of hyperbaric oxygen therapy seems to be increasingly proven with time. Lastly, in their general experience of treatment, the authors suggest the use of a specific frequency soft laser therapy, which might speed up the process of tissue repair.
