Answer

Similarly, McHenry et al reported that the average time from admission to operation was 90 hours in nonsurvivors of necrotizing soft-tissue infections; in survivors, this average time was 25 hours. [29] Early debridement of the infection was obviously associated with a significant decrease in mortality.
