Abstract

Modern military general surgeons tend to train and then practice in 'conventional' surgical specialties in their home nation; however, the reality of deployed surgical practice, either in a combat zone or on a humanitarian mission, is that they are likely to have to manage patients with a broad range of ages, conditions and pathologies. Obstetric complications of war injury include injury to the uterus and fetus as well as the mother and both placental abruption and uterine rupture are complications that military surgeons may have little experience of recognising and managing. On humanitarian deployments, fetomaternal complications are a common reason for surgical intervention. We report a recent patient's story to highlight the obstetric training needs of military surgeons.
