In order to learn the expediency of necrectomy in 3rd and 4th degree burns, and the effect of it on the evolution of a burn, and also to establish the most effective time for surgical intervention, experiments were conducted on five series of rabbits of both sexes a total of 42 animals. The animals of the first series were the control.
