For a crew of seven people, researchers estimate that there will be an average of one surgical emergency every 2.4 years during a Mars mission.

The main causes include injury, appendicitis, gallbladder inflammation or cancer. Astronauts are screened extensively when they are selected, but surgical emergencies can occur in healthy people and may be exacerbated in the extreme environment of space.
