Trauma

The word “trauma” is used to describe experiences or situations that are emotionally painful and distressing, and that overwhelm people’s ability to cope, leaving them powerless.

The requirements of lower limb trauma reconstruction are discussed with comment on the availability of plastic surgery services. The significance of early efficient soft tissue management is stressed and a plea is made for better cooperation between plastic and orthopaedic surgery in both training and practice.
