Background War injuries differ from other injuries owing to the large tissue defects they cause and their high risk of contamination. As fragments scattered by high-energy firearms and explosives cause serious composite tissue damage, repair of such injuries is difficult and requires a long treatment period. We discuss the treatment methods used for injured Syrian War refugees admitted to our clinic and present the most effective repair methods for war-related tissue defects for each region of the body.
