Abstract:

This report is a summary of a symposium that was planned and held on December 5-6, 2005, in Houston, TX. The focus of this symposium was on surgery in extreme environments. During this two day event, invited experts from academia, government, and industry gathered to discuss what has already been accomplished in the area of surgery during spaceflight. This included activities underway within DoD, TATRO, NASA, the Russian Space Program, and other activities in which a surgical presence, although limited, was used in extreme environments. This symposium looked at the many challenges that are faced in providing advanced surgical care.
