This clinical observational study investigates the incidence of wound healing abnormalities in patients undergoing major abdominal surgery. Second aim of the study is, if wound healing deficits may be accompanied by abnormalities in blood coagulation parameters.

Impaired Wound Healing Factor XIII Deficiency

Study Type: Observational
Study Design: Observational Model: Cohort
Time Perspective: Prospective
Official Title: Incidence of Wound-healing-abnormalities in Major Abdominal Surgery - Association With Factors of Coagulation

Further study details as provided by Armin Sablotzki, MD, Klinikum St. Georg gGmbH:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Incidence of wound healing abnormalities [ Time Frame: from baseline to postoperative day 28 ]
    Occurence of wound healing abnormalities within the first 28 days after surgery

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Abnormalities in coagulation parameters [ Time Frame: postoperative day 28 ]
    occurence of low platelets (<60.000) or factor XIII < 50% between the first and seventh postoperative day

Biospecimen Retention:   Samples Without DNA
1) serum samples for measurement of coagulation factors

Enrollment: 260
