Abstract

Devastating tornados struck the state of Kansas on Friday, April 26, 1991. Twenty lives were lost and many people were injured. Property damage was extensive. Overall, the outcome of those admitted to the various hospitals was good, with few orthopedic-related complications. The low complication rate can be attributed to thorough open wound management and suspicion and recognition of other potential orthopedic complications such as compartment syndrome.
