Abstract : It has been 15 years since the problem of combined injuries has been reviewed. Since then a great deal has been learned about the pathophysiology of combined injuries. This proceedings will review the mechanisms in combined injuries, sepsis, immunological and inflammatory responses, surgery and wound healing, and therapy. This paper will briefly review experimental data on combined injury, and try to provide an overview of the primary pathologic processes causing death in trauma, radiation, and combined injuries. Other papers in this proceedings will definitively describe specific aspects in pathogenesis.
