Sažetak
A Rehabilitation Information System was created in July 1993 in order to register war victims in need of physical rehabilitation all over Croatia. The system is currently operating and presented data covers the period from July 1991 to July 1995. Approximately 15, 000 questionnaires had been completed and returned from medical institutions on in total 8589 disabled war victims in need of rehabilitation. People with severe disabilities comprised about 20% of all in need of rehabilitation. Those reported injured were 3.5 times more than those in need of physical rehabilitation. Most common types of injuries were fractures with a permanent disabling condition (3109 persons), peripheral nerve injuries (1213 persons) and amputations (956 persons). Traumatic brain injuries were registered for 594 and spinal cord injuries for 262 persons. Causes of injuries were explosive devices (such as mines, mortar shell shrapnel, etc.) in 37% of cases, bullets in 22%, accidents in 7%, other (such as fire, blast injuries, etc.) and unknown causes in 34%.
