The article presents a research study on the development of heterotopic ossification following combat-related trauma. Various clinical factors and biological markers are identified that are prognostic of the formation of combat-related heterotropic ossification which include systemic wound inflammation, traumatic brain injury and amputation surgery. It also adds that computed tomography is needed in the evaluation, treatment and operative excision of combat-related heterotopic ossification.
