A brief background of combat injuries

By Peter Pollack and Carolyn Rogers

Given the current tensions in the Middle East, treatment of combat injuries has become an increasingly important aspect of orthopaedic surgery—a fact reflected in the programming for the 2007 AAOS Annual Meeting, which featured two symposia and a media briefing addressing the topic.

Both military and civilian personnel participated in the sessions. Among the speakers were Capt. Dana C. Covey, MD; Roy K. Aaron, MD; Lt.Col. Romney Anderson, MD; Jason H. Calhoun, MD; Thomas A. Einhorn, MD; Lt. Cmdr. H. Michael Frisch, MD; Col. James R. Ficke, MD; Col. Roman Hayda, MD, MC; L. Scott Levin, MD, FACS; Cmdr. Michael T. Mazurek, MD; Col. Elisha T. Powell IV, MD; Maj. David Rozelle, Edward Schwarz, PhD; and Joseph C. Wenke, PhD.
