Triage criteria and therapeutic tactics are relatively well established for polytraumas, even in typical mass-casualty situations. Far more uncertain is the management of patients demonstrating radiocombined injuries. For that reason, we have carried on a research program on irradiated animals with either burns or surgical trauma partial enterectomy or nephrectomy. The researchs aims were a to follow the evolution of the clinical and biological syndromes of these pathological entities b to determine anaesthesia, resuscitation, and surgery problems presented by the irradiated animal in toto and c to specify repair mechanisms after combined injury. Our results represent an original contribution to the study of radio-combined injuries. The results presented have represent a synopsis of restrictedly distributed, recently published reports.
