Abstract

Early diagnosis and intervention are paramount for improving the likelihood of a favorable outcome for traumatic vascular injuries. As technology has rapidly diversified, the diagnostic and therapeutic approaches available for vascular injuries have evolved. Mortality and morbidity from vascular injury have declined over the last decade. The use of vascular shunts and tourniquets has become standard of care in military medicine.
