Foot and ankle trauma: From the crush to the missed and neglected injuries
© Springer-Verlag Berlin Heidelberg 2016. In the face of major long-bone fracture, head injury, or life-threatening blunt trauma to the chest or abdomen, injuries to the foot and ankle, particularly if they are closed and not associated with gross deformity, are often missed or simply neglected. In major disasters or mass casualties where providers are overwhelmed and diagnostic and therapeutic facilities are stretched to the limit, neglected noncritical trauma is the norm.
