We present patients (both sex) with open fractures of tibia of the second and third degrees. All patients were wounded during the four years of military actions around Sarajevo (1992-1996) and treated at the Clinic for orthopaedics and traumatology in Sarajevo under war circumstances. We identify complications of such wounds and point to work performed under extremely hard conditions for orthopaedic and traumatologic surgeons and other medical stuff.
