This study, a retrospective review of the orthopaedic outpatient work from a multinational hospital in Bosnia, further confirms the dangers of sport on an operational tour.

In particular, football was shown to be the most common cause of injury and the wisdom of allowing this sport during operational tours must be questioned.
