Posttraumatic or postoperative (multi) organ failure is the result of a multitude of reactions similar to (generalized) inflammatory situations. The fuel for this reaction cascade is either derived from continuous activation of humoral cascades (e.g. complement), continuous overshooting phagocytosis or toxic products of bacterial cells (e.g. endotoxin).
