Surgery Timing In Outcome Burn Patients

2016-10-21 04:08:21 | BioPortfolio


Prognosis of burn patients has improved over the last decades. Early excision of full thickness burns is thought to be one of the key factors which have led to prognostic improvement. Best timing for burn excision remain uncertain however. In this multicenter observational study, we aim at exploring the impact of timing of surgery on outcome in severely ill patients using a propensity analysis.


The first aim of the study is to explore the impact of timing of the first surgery on outcome of severely ill burn patients. Because a randomization would not be feasible in this setting, we will use a propensity analysis in matching patients receiving early surgery and those receiving late surgery. Secondary aims are to evaluate the impact of the timing of surgery on morbidity (organs failure, infections, sepsis) but also to assess the diagnostic and prognostic value of plasma and urine biomarkers in severely ill burn patients

Excision of the uterus.

Specialized hospital facilities which provide intensive care for burn patients.

The reconstruction of a continuous two-stranded DNA molecule without mismatch from a molecule which contained damaged regions. The major repair mechanisms are excision repair, in which defective regions in one strand are excised and resynthesized using the complementary base pairing information in the intact strand; photoreactivation repair, in which the lethal and mutagenic effects of ultraviolet light are eliminated; and post-replication repair, in which the primary lesions are not repaired, but the gaps in one daughter duplex are filled in by incorporation of portions of the other (undamaged) daughter duplex. Excision repair and post-replication repair are sometimes referred to as "dark repair" because they do not require light.
