I

Introduction. In generalizing the experience of providing medical care to the wounded in armed conflicts, a special place belongs to the analysis of the magnitude and structure of casualties, which depend on the conditions, forms and methods of hostilities.

The purpose. Conduct a clinical and epidemiological analysis of the proportion of gunshot and mine injuries in the structure of combat surgical trauma during the Anti-terrorist operation / Joint Forces operation.

Materials and methods. The total number of wounded as a result of the armed conflict in eastern Ukraine in the period from 2014 to 2019 was more than 41 thousand people, from them killed among the civilian population – 3350 people and 4100 – servicemen.

Results. It was proved that the wounded with non-severe combat surgical trauma are 36.5%, severe – 48.9%, extremely severe – 14.6%. Shrapnel wounds were received by 35.3%, bullet wounds – 48.3%, mine injuries – 16.6%. Isolated combat surgical trauma was found in 16.8%, multiple – in 34.3%, combined – in 48.9% of the wounded. Impenetrable combat surgical trauma was diagnosed in 63.7% of the wounded, penetrating into the pleural cavity – in 17.2%, in the abdominal cavity – in 16.0%, in the pelvic cavity – in 3.1%.

Conclusions. In the structure of sanitary losses of the surgical profile during the ATO / OOS, the wounded with injuries of the extremities are 56.7%, with injuries of the chest – 10.1%, abdomen – 5.1%, pelvis – 3.0%.
