The Russian Federation has continued to demonstrate commendable support in the persistent war against terrorism. Their contributions in the area of medicine and treatments of combat injuries are of particular interest and significance. In “CHALLENGES IN TREATING COMBAT INJURIES”, authors Viktor Homutov, Ildar Minnullin, Lev Glaznikov and Ravil Nigmedzyanov combine their firsthand experiences and observations as doctors in war hotspots with their knowledge on combat injuries and rehabilitation.

This book contains valuable information on the diagnosis, treatment and medical rehabilitation of patients struggling with combat injuries and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). This comprehensive volume is authored by military doctors whose work experiences in Afghanistan hospitals (especially in the Central Military Hospital in Afghanistan) during the war gave them a unique viewpoint on the nature of combat injuries.

The authors put emphasis on the fact that the medical community and practicing physicians must be properly acquainted with the pathogenesis problems and cure of bullet-inflicted wounds if they are to come up with an effective recommendation for the patient. In their book they provide answers to some critical questions on surgical and reparative cure in the light of their unique experiences.

Timely and insightful, “CHALLENGES IN TREATING COMBAT INJURIES” is highly useful to doctors and medical professionals who deal with emergencies and are working in areas exposed to terroristic threats, local wars and military conflicts.
