Abstract

Background: There are significant differences between the nature of upper and lower extremity burns. This study aimed to investigate some of these differences and their possible influences on wounds healing process caused by burns on upper and lower extremities. Methods: This study included the data from 283 patients admitted to Taleghani hospital from August 2014 to August 2015. The patients were classified to two groups, namely patients with upper extremity burn and those with lower extremity burn. The length of hospitalization and mortality rate was also studied and compared to each other. Results: The length of hospitalization for the female group was significantly higher than the male group (P < 0.001). The mortality rate among female patients was much higher than that of the male patients (30.3% vs. 18.5%, P = 0.004). Conclusions: Considering the gender effect and mortality rate, as a prognostic factor, may be useful in clinical practice.
