Abstract

Gunshot wounds are a major clinical problem in surgical practice mainly because the pathway of the bullet and the extent of the injuries cannot be immediately assessed during an initial examination. The number of complications and fatalities with patients hospitalized for gunshot wounds increases significantly when major blood vessels are damaged. In this paper we will present the case of a young man whose left common iliac vein, artery and rectum were damaged after a shot in the right buttock.
