This study will recruit wounded warriors with severe extremity trauma, which places them a thigh risk for heterotopic ossification HO bone formation at abnormal sites, which causes pain, limits motion andor limits the use of a prosthetic device. There are three goals 1 to understand the mechanisms involved in HO 2 to define accurate and practical methods to predict where HO will develop and 3 to define potential therapies for prevention or mitigation of HO.
