Abstract
This book presents carefully selected case reports that document some of the most important lessons learned at Ziv Medical Center, the northernmost Israeli hospital responsible for the medical care and support of wounded and patients from the Syrian civil war. The aim is to provide practitioners with new knowledge on effective ways of dealing with the emergencies encountered in the context of such conflicts. The case reports cover in particular the specialties of Trauma and Critical Care, Orthopedics, and Surgery, but also relate to Internal Medicine, Ophthalmology, Obstetrics and Gynecology, and Psychiatric Care. Some of the cases of trauma are of a nature not previously encountered by Western medicine, and include instances in which multidisciplinary care played a vital role. Featuring many informative illustrations, the book will be of value for all who work in emergency and military medicine and related disciplines, from novices to the more experienced.

Abstract
This book is designed as an easy to read reference and practical guide to the management of combat extremity injuries, which account for a high percentage of the injuries sustained in recent and current conflicts. The surgical techniques appropriate to the full range of extremity injuries and some other frequent injuries, such as trauma to the spine and pelvis, are clearly described with the aid of helpful illustrations. In each chapter a bottom line up front approach is adopted, providing key messages first; a further important feature is the emphasis placed on case-based information and lessons learned from practice. Care has been taken to ensure that the advice provided is straightforward and in line with military clinical practice guidelines.

Abstract
This authoritative reference examines the causes of--and offers workable solutions to--the widespread problem of musculoskeletal injuries among armed forces personnel. Specific chapters on combat, non-combat, training, and fitness injuries shed necessary light on the nature and scope of the epidemic, including impact on active service members and the resulting quality of life issues in veterans. An overview of these injuries by anatomic region highlights treatment, disability, and prevention issues in military settings. The book also translates the standard public health model for preventing injuries into military context, giving professionals guidelines for developing strategies tailored to the unique strengths and risks of this population. Featured in the coverage: The burden of musculoskeletal injuries in the military; Traumatic combat injuries; Deployment and non-battle injuries; Epidemiology of musculoskeletal injuries by anatomic region; Application of the public health model for injury prevention; Barriers to injury prevention in the military. Its depth of detail makes Musculoskeletal Injuries in the Military critical reading for orthopedic surgeons, physical therapists, athletic trainers, military leaders, military and VA healthcare staff including physicians and policymakers, public health and injury prevention professionals, occupational health and safety professionals, musculoskeletal injury and disease researchers, and veterans' health advocacy groups.

Abstract
This text provides a comprehensive and state-of-the art approach to reconstruction of the war injured patient tailored to the types of injuries and patients mostly encountered from the Arab region over the past few years at the American University of Beirut Medical Center, one of the largest tertiary care and referral centers in the area and its affiliated hospitals. The book discusses in detail evidence of literature, new research data and new perspectives about the management and reconstruction of all types of injuries: ophthalmic, head and neck, upper and lower limb bone and soft tissue trauma, trunk, visceral and urogenital injuries as well as vascular and central and peripheral nerve injuries. It also highlights the social burden of these injuries as well as the importance of rehabilitation and psychological support for the war injured. The most recent findings of the change in the microbiology of these wounds and their treatment modifications are also discussed. Reconstructing the War Injured Patient will serve as a valuable resource for surgeons, clinicians and researchers dealing with and interested in the multiple facets of current war casualty care all the way from the battlefields to the long-term chronic rehabilitation. It includes concise yet comprehensive overviews of the current status of the war casualty patient reconstruction domain. It will help guide patient management based on evidence from literature, clinical and surgical experience and ongoing research. It will also help stimulate investigative efforts in this dynamic and active field of war medicine.
