  Purpose

The purpose of the study is to see if a medication (Recombinant Coagulation Factor VIIa or NovoSeven), normally used to stop bleeding in persons with a bleeding disorder, will lower the amount of blood lost during burn surgery.

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Total Number of Blood Components Transfused During and up to 24 Hours Post Operatively [ Time Frame: 24 hours ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Enrollment: 20
Study Start Date: January 2006
Study Completion Date: July 2011
Primary Completion Date: June 2011 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: rFVIIa
intravenous administration of rFVIIa
Drug: Recombinant Factor VIIa
intravenous infusion of Factor VIIa
Placebo Comparator: Control
intravenous administration of placebo

Detailed Description:

To identify the clinical use for Factor VIIa in the operating room to reduce blood loss and blood transfusion , determine the Recombinant Factor VIIa (rFVIIa) pharmacokinetics in burned patients, determine if fFVIIa should be used to reduce peri-operative blood loss in patients undergoing excision greater than or equal to 20 percent of the total body surface area, determine the efficacy of the drug in burned patients undergoing excision of burn wounds.
