[Article in Russian]


Last years in the country gace rise to the problem of treatment of fire-arm's wounds in civil population. The results of treatment of victims with firearm thoracoabdominal wounds have evidenced unprepareness of surgeons for rendering specialized aid in conditions of "military-urban" surgery. The study performed by the authors has shown that there are substantial and principal differences between many postulates of war-field surgery and "military-urban" surgery. It consists in early hospitalization of victims with combined thoraco-abdominal injuries, prevalence of bullet wounds over fire-mine explosive injuries which have an effect on the extent of surgical intervention, results of treatment and development of complications. The proposed treatment modalities in victims with combined penetrated thoracoabdominal injuries in great measure may contribute to optimization of surgical aid in conditions of "military-urban" surgery.
