The shift away from delayed eschar separation and late grafting to early excision has shown to be beneficial in terms of immune and hypermetabolic responses as well as mortality; however, it is associated with higher operative blood loss than the conservative approach.
The cancer cell's dominant use of glycolysis even in the presence of oxygen, the Warburg effect, is characteristic of the hypermetabolic activity that fuels the explosive growth of cancer, steals glucose from healthy tissue, and produces metabolic byproducts that contribute to systemic illness.
