Divya Gaur Shukla | Meenakshi Kumar [2] | Ira Balakrishnan M


Abstract: Thoracic gunshot injury can have variable presentation. The risk of injury to heart, major blood vessels and the lungs should be evaluated in every patient thoroughly and surgery should be considered as early as possible whenever indicated. We present a case of accidental gunshot injury to chest which got successfully removed surgically. A preoperative echocardiogram and chest computed tomography are definitively required to determine the bullet location (myocardium versus pericardium).
