Rehabilitation of injured U.S. servicemember with traumatic brain injury, stroke, spinal cord injury, and bilateral amputations: A case report

Ajit B. Pai, MD, et al.

The complex injuries that can result from combat, specifically from the Operation Iraqi Freedom/Operation Enduring Freedom conflicts, are challenging. As injured troops leave the war zone early for medical care, they are treated by an interwoven system of care that includes both the Department of Defense and the Veterans Health Administration. Because physicians across these settings are increasingly faced with patients with multiple rehabilitation diagnoses caused by severe blast injuries, the importance of active communication across the system must be highlighted.
