Abstract:  Injuries sustained in an active war zone present some of the greatest therapeutic challenges to physicians, healthcare specialists, and patients. The increasing sophistication of weapons and the availability of armaments have improved the ability of combatants to inflict devastating multisystem wounds, and field conditions often compromise the treatment of those who survive their initial trauma. Countering these factors are advances in trauma care, which effectively treat injuries that once proved quickly fatal. As a result, many victims of war are now more likely than ever to require long-term care.
