Recent military operations have resulted in a small but significant number of military personnel suffering severe perineal injuries. In association with lower limb amputation and pelvic fracture, this complex is described as the 'signature injury' of the current conflict in Afghanistan. There are significant consequences of surviving severe perineal injury but the experience of managing these casualties is limited. This article gives an overview of the processes developed to meet these challenges and introduces a series of articles which examine the subject in finer detail.
