LA50 is a reliable measure for evaluating quality of care in burn centers. Age and severity of burns are the most important factors affecting LA50. In this study, we evaluated the impact of burn surgeons on LA50 in a tertiary burn center. During a one-year period, we collected data including age, gender, cause of burn, Total Burned Body Surface Area (TBSA), presence or absence of inhalation injury and comorbidity, surgeon in charge of the treatment and outcome (discharge or death), in all patients who were admitted to the hospital. Totally, 2,581 data from patients were analyzed. The mean age of patients was 33.01 ± 21.60. The inhalation injury and comorbidity had significant impact on LA50. Also, different surgeons had significantly different LA50. Factors such as older age, more sever burn, inhalation injury and comorbidity entail low LA50, and whereas treated by different surgeons are features considered as significant factors for having a different outcome and LA50 in burn centers.
