Abstract : Triage criteria and therapeutic tactics are relatively well established for polytraumas, even in typical mass-casualty situations. Far more uncertain is the management of patients demonstrating radiocombined injuries. For that reason, we have carried on a research program on irradiated animals with either burns or surgical trauma (partial enterectomy or nephrectomy). The research's aims were (a) to follow the evolution of the clinical and biological syndromes of these pathological entities; (b) to determine anaesthesia, resuscitation, and surgery problems presented by the irradiated animal in toto; and (c) to specify repair mechanisms after combined injury. Our results represent an original contribution to the study of radio-combined injuries. The results presented have represent a synopsis of restrictedly distributed, recently published reports.
