The medical community is actively engaged in research to provide the highest level of evidence to support clinical practice. The care of wounded warriors creates unique challenges, and conducting research that provides evidence for clinical practice is important to outcomes in this patient population. When the current wars began, much debate centered on the best way to care for wounded warriors. To address these concerns, we use a MythBusters format, based on the popular television show, to describe how recent research has dispelled some earlier misconceptions and clarify how clinical practice has been changed. In addition, we assess the progress that has been made on addressing the original prioritized research objectives of the first Extremity War Injuries symposium.
