Abstract

Unbelievable decrease of blood-platelet in the severely burned patients during the treatment of skingrafting caused two patients to unexpected death. From the records of changes of platelet number, a certain 'platelet curve' was made. By observing the curve, our treatments of skingrafting were carried out during the stable period and from then on we had no death cases.
