Does hyperbaric oxygen therapy help treat a tendinopathy (specifically, tendinosis) in humans?

What I have found so far:

From {1} (RCT on 56 rats done in 2012):

Hyperbaric oxygen therapy creates a positive histological and biomechanical effect on tendon healing after Achilles tendon repair.

From {2} (RCT on 13 rabbits done in 2004):

The results validate the effectiveness of hyperbaric oxygen therapy in the treatment of tendinopathy. Hyperbaric oxygen therapy may increase collagen synthesis and collagen cross-link formation during the early healing process.

I wonder if any study (preferably RCT) has been done on humans.
