Major Burns Coagulation and the Role of Factor XIII: A Descriptive Study

Brief Summary

      Prospective observational study in which FXIII levels and coagulation tests and cicatrization
      are measured during the 30 days after the thermal trauma.

Detailed Description

      This is a prospective observational pilot study in which the levels of FXIII and coagulation,
      anticoagulation, fibrinolysis, endothelial tissue damage and cicatrization are at the arrival
      of the patient to hospital, 24 hours before the first surgical intervention, 24h After the
      first surgical intervention, at 7 days after the first intervention and at 30 days after the
      thermal trauma, in this moment the healing will also be evaluated. All burn patients who meet
