This study will recruit wounded warriors with severe extremity trauma, which places them at high 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.
