Treatment of tibial bone defects with the Ilizarov circular external fixator in high-velocity gunshot wounds. (1/521)

One of the applications for circular external fixators is the treatment of large-bone defects which may be difficult to manage with conventional methods. Successful results have been reported with the use of circular external fixators, particularly in the treatment of infected tibial pseudoarthroses and those with bone loss. In this study, a total of 43 cases with tibial bone defects (18 infected) as a result of high-velocity gun-shot injuries were treated with circular external fixators between January 1, 1988 and December 31, 1995. The mean follow-up period was 50 months (range: 28-98 months) after the removal of the Ilizarov device. Satisfactory union was obtained in 40 cases without any major complication or additional surgical intervention, in spite of the large and in some cases infected defects. We conclude that this is a safe method for the treatment of infected or noninfected tibial bone defects.  (+info)

Calcific myonecrosis. (2/521)

Calcific myonecrosis is a rare and late sequela of compartment syndrome, which becomes symptomatic years after the initial trauma. We diagnosed this condition in a 64-year old man, 42 years after he sustained a shot-gun wound to the right lower leg. Total excision of a peripherally calcified, cystic mass, continuous with the anterior tibial muscle belly resulted in complete resolution of symptoms. Consideration of the diagnosis is warranted in patients with a history of major injury who develop a soft tissue mass in the traumatized compartment. The treatment of choice is marginal excision.  (+info)

Child and adolescent injury and death from urban firearm assaults: association with age, race, and poverty. (3/521)

OBJECTIVE: To describe rates and trends in the incidence of non-fatal and fatal firearm assault among children (16 years old or younger) over an 11 year period in Chicago, Illinois and to identify the socioeconomic characteristics of community areas where assaults are common. METHODS: The Chicago Police Department (CPD) records from 1986 through 1996 were reviewed for children assaulted with a firearm. United States census data for 1990 for Chicago were used to calculate incidence rates; census data were also used for community area (defined by census tract) socioeconomic descriptions. RESULTS: The CPD recorded 11,163 pediatric firearm assaults during the study period: 10,571 non-fatal and 592 (5%) fatal. From 1986 through 1996 non-fatal assaults more than doubled, with the highest rates in 1994; fatal assaults tripled, with rates peaking in 1993-94. Significant increases in non-fatal firearm assaults occurred among black and Hispanic males and females. In 1994, compared with white males, the relative risk of non-fatal assault was 7.0 (95% confidence interval (CI) 5.3 to 9.1) for black males and 3.3 (95% CI 2.5 to 4.4) for Hispanic males; the relative risk was 1.5 (95% CI 1.1 to 2.1) for black females. A handgun was the firearm used in most assaults (88% of non-fatal and 84% of fatal). Within community areas, the correlation between non-fatal and fatal assault incidence was strong (r=0.80, p<0.001). The proportion of families with income below the 1989 poverty level ($12,674) and the per cent black race in the community area together accounted for 70% of the variance in assault rates. CONCLUSIONS: From 1986 to 1994 there were significant increases in both non-fatal and fatal firearm assaults, usually by handguns; thereafter, rates declined. Urban children who were victims of non-fatal firearm assault appear to come from the same population as those who suffer fatal assaults. Black and Hispanic youth living in poverty were at particular risk.  (+info)

Pediatric practice based evaluation of the Steps to Prevent Firearm Injury program. (4/521)

OBJECTIVE: To estimate the prevalence of gun ownership and methods of gun storage in homes of pediatric patients before and after an educational intervention. DESIGN: Before and after trial. SETTING: Hospital based, inner city, pediatric primary care practice. PARTICIPANTS: Consecutive sample of parents of patients with appointments August to November 1994. INTERVENTION: Before the intervention, participants completed an anonymous questionnaire regarding ownership and storage of guns in their home. The intervention followed the Steps to Prevent Firearm Injury program of the American Academy of Pediatrics. It began after the parent completed the questionnaire and was reinforced at subsequent visits until July 1995. Families completing a baseline questionnaire and returning to the office July to October 1995 were resurveyed. MAIN OUTCOME MEASURE: Reported change in gun ownership and methods of storage. RESULTS: A gun(s) in the home was reported by 8.7% of respondents. Matched baseline and follow up questionnaires were available for 23.6% of families. In these, gun ownership reportedly decreased after intervention from 9.4% to 7.0%, handgun ownership fell from 5.4% to 3.0%, and long gun ownership fell from 6.1% to 5.5%. Storing guns outside of a locked container did not change from the baseline prevalence of 2.7%, but keeping any gun loaded fell from 1.6% to 0.5%. All p values were >0.05. CONCLUSION: This study was unable to demonstrate a statistically significant decline in gun ownership or improvement in gun storage after a practice based intervention designed to encourage these behaviors.  (+info)

Universal primary colonic repair in the firearm era. (5/521)

All patients with colonic trauma treated at King Edward VIII Hospital, Durban, from August 1993 to May 1994 underwent primary repair of the colonic wound. They were evaluated prospectively to assess the mode of injury and outcome variables. Colonic injuries were sustained by 102 patients. These were inflicted by gunshots (62), stabs (22), shotguns (14), and blunt trauma (4). The transverse colon was injured most frequently (53). All shotgun injuries were multiple. Average time from admission to theatre was similar for shocked and non-shocked patients. Eighty-seven patients had simple closure (18 deaths) and 15 required resection and anastomosis (eight deaths). Ten patients died in the first 48 h, and 16 died subsequently owing to multiple-organ systems dysfunction. The mortality rates were stabs 9% (2), gunshots 27% (17), shotguns 50% (7), and 0% for blunt trauma. Septic morbidity was seen in 16 but was not related to breakdown of the colonic repair. Implementation of strategies to reduce preoperative time delays and use damage control principles for the management of massive trauma should be evaluated as methods of reducing mortality.  (+info)

Experimental study on firearm wound in maxillofacial region. (6/521)

OBJECTIVE: To make clear the range of firearm wound in the maxillofacial region, the optical repair time and the characteristics of accompanied indirect brain damage, and to offer the principle of emergency treatment and the early repair of war wound. METHODS: With the aid of the standard Sweden model, 200 dogs were used in the experiment. Varies tissues around the primary canal were harvested chronologically, in different zone and different tissue, for histopathological examination. RESULTS: The necrotic range of various tissues in the maxillofacial region was less than that in the extremities. In the maxillofacial region, there was a significant temporary cavity following the passing of bullet, which caused indirect brain damages. CONCLUSION: These findings are helpful to the treatment of war wound in the maxillofacial region. Early bone transplantation using microvascular anastomosis in the treatment of gunshot wound in the maxillofacial region is recommendable.  (+info)

Handguns as a pediatric problem. 1986. (7/521)

Handgun injury is a major cause of morbidity and mortality in American society, particularly for young people. Large numbers of children are affected by handgun violence through the loss of fathers, brothers, and other relatives. Young children are injured and sometimes killed in handgun accidents. Some children and many adolescents are murdered with handguns. Because of their great lethality and very limited ability to provide personal protection, the great burden of handgun injury can best be reduced by making handguns less available. Handgun control cannot reduce rates of crime or interpersonal assault, but it can be expected to reduce the frequency and severity of injury which grows out of these situations, to levels closer to the much lower ones found in other countries. Pediatricians can contribute to this effort, as they have to the efforts to reduce the morbidity and mortality from poisonings and motor vehicle passenger injury.  (+info)

Firearm-associated deaths and hospitalizations--California, 1995-1996. (8/521)

During 1995-1996, 27% of recorded injury-related deaths in California involved firearms (California Department of Health Services [CDHS], unpublished data, 1995-1996). In 1996, CDHS began passive surveillance of "severe" firearm-related injuries (i.e., resulting in death or hospitalization) with resources provided by the California Wellness Foundation. To characterize firearm-related injuries in California, CDHS analyzed death records and hospital discharge records for 1995 and 1996 (the most recent years for which population data are available to calculate rates). This report summarizes the results of the analysis, which indicate that most of the 21,985 firearm-related injuries and deaths resulted from assault.  (+info)

Because firearm-related injury to children is associated with death and severe morbidity and is a significant public health problem, child health care professionals can and should provide effective leadership in efforts to stem this epidemic. The AAP recognizes the importance of a variety of countermeasures (educational, environmental, engineering, enactment, enforcement, economic incentives, and evaluation) to begin to curb dramatically the number of firearm-related injuries to children. The AAP makes the following recommendations, which reaffirm and expand on the 1992 policy statement71:. 1. The AAP affirms that the most effective measure to prevent firearm-related injuries to children and adolescents is the absence of guns from homes and communities.. a) Firearm regulation, to include bans of handguns and assault weapons, is the most effective way to reduce firearm-related injuries.. b) Pediatricians and other child health care professionals are urged to inform parents about the dangers of ...
Civilian abdominal gunshot wounds in Lagos.: This prospective study of 78 patients who sustained abdominal gunshot wounds was performed to evaluate the pattern
Gun violence is on the rise in some European countries, however most of the literature on gunshot injuries pertains to military weaponry and is difficult to apply to civilians, due to dissimilarities in wound contamination and wounding potential of firearms and ammunition. Gunshot injuries in civilians have more focal injury patterns and should be considered distinct entities. A search of the National Library of Medicine and the National Institutes of Health MEDLINE database was performed using PubMed. Craniocerebral gunshot injuries are often lethal, especially after suicide attempts. The treatment of non space consuming haematomas and the indications for invasive pressure measurement are controversial. Civilian gunshot injuries to the torso mostly intend to kill; however for those patients who do not die at the scene and are hemodynamically stable, insertion of a chest tube is usually the only required procedure for the majority of penetrating chest injuries. In penetrating abdominal injuries there is

Firearm-related injuries are a major cause of premature deaths in the United States (1). Although state-based vital records systems monitor fatal injuries, few surveillance systems exist to monitor nonfatal firearm-related injuries (2). Wisconsin is one of seven states funded by CDC cooperative agreements to establish firearm-related injury surveillance systems. Wisconsins system, which links hospital discharge records and vital records, uses external cause of injury codes (E-codes) for case identification. This report describes the surveillance system and findings for 1994. All Wisconsin hospitals are required to report E-codes for hospitalized patients to the states hospital discharge database. E-codes, which are part of the International Classification of Diseases, Ninth Revision, Clinical Modification (ICD-9-CM) injury classification scheme, were used to classify the intent of the perpetrator and the type of firearm discharged. E-codes used to classify intent include E922.0-9 ...
Hieronymus Brunschwig argued that infection of gunshot wounds was a result of poisoning by gunpowder, which provided the rationale for cauterizing wounds. Ambroise Paré wrote in his 1545 book, The Method of Curing Wounds Caused by Arquebus and Firearms, that wounds should be sealed rather than cauterized.[43][44] John Hunter argued that infection was not caused by poisoning. Until the 1880s, the standard practice for treating a gunshot wound called for physicians to insert their unsterilized fingers into the wound to probe and locate the path of the bullet.[45] Surgically opening abdominal cavities to repair gunshot wounds,[46] germ theory, and Joseph Listers technique for antiseptic surgery using diluted carbolic acid, first demonstrated in 1865, had not yet been accepted as standard practice. For example, sixteen doctors attended to President James A. Garfield after he was shot in 1881, and most probed the wound with their fingers or dirty instruments.[47] Historians agree that massive ...
Gunshot wounds have been an important source of injury for centuries and continue to occur. The military medical communities have developed standard procedural sequences and principles that may assist and serve as references to the care of civilian gunshot wound patients. In addition to the basic understanding of the wounding patterns and potential extent of the damage caused by the ballistic characteristics of the missile, three principles need to be emphasized in the course of the treatment: timely debridement, delivery of antibiotics, and delayed closure of the wound. Despite recent innovations and improvements in medicine, the three principles still stand, and may assist even surgeons with minimal experience in treating gunshot wounds to achieve reliable results. The situation and environment of civilian medical facilities differ from those of the military in war time, and less invasive and more conservative methods may be attempted in accordance with available resources. ...

STUDY DESIGN:. Case report.. OBJECTIVE:. To present an unusual traumatic neurologic pathology caused by gunshot injury.. SETTING:. Spine unit of Department of Trauma and Orthopaedic Surgery, University Medical School, Charité - Campus Benjamin Franklin, Berlin, Germany.. METHOD AND RESULT:. A 35-year-old male sustained a gunshot injury from a machine gun. The projectile caused a fracture of the left pedicle of Th10. The spinal cord was indirectly damaged by cavitation that caused a Brown-Séquard syndrome (BSS). After a microscopically assisted posterior revision at T9/10 with removal of bullet and bone fragments from the spinal canal and debridement of the bullet cavity via extended fenestrectomy the patient gained his motor function back. The sensory deficit remained unchanged.. CONCLUSION:. BSS can be caused by bullet-related injury of the spinal canal with no direct damage of neural structures. The initial treatment is always based on the total injury pattern. Possible spinal cord injuries ...
In 2014, non-fatal firearm injuries accounted for 1,152 hospital discharges among California children and young adults ages 0-24 (8.8 per 100,000), down from more than 5,000 (43 per 100,000) in 1991. In 2014, boys and young men were discharged for firearm injuries at more than ten times the rate (15.8 per 100,000) of girls and young women (1.4 per 100,000), and the rate of discharge among African American/black youth (53.6 per 100,000) was more than six times higher than for any other group with data.

Researchers analyzed national data on firearm-related fatalities and nonfatal firearm injuries in patients aged 0 to 17 years between 2002 and 2014. Data on incident circumstances were obtained from the National Violent Death Reporting System (NVDRS), a state based surveillance system active in 17 states. Results showed that males accounted for 82% of firearm deaths and 84% of nonfatal injuries regardless of intent, with death rates among males aged 13 to 17 being 6 times higher than those among females. During this time period, 53% of deaths were homicides while 38% were suicides and 6% were unintentional deaths. From 2002 to 2007, homicide rates increased significantly (1.2 to 1.4 per 100,000, P,.05) while rates declined significantly from 2007 to 2014 (1.4 to 0.9, P,.05). Conversely, suicide rates from 2002-2007 decreased significantly (1.3 to 1.0, P,.05) and increased significantly from 2007-2014 (1.0 to 1.6, P,.05). White children had the highest overall risk of fatal firearm injuries, ...

There are only a few ways to incapacitate a person using a firearm. First, the gunshot wound must cause sufficient bleeding to cause them to lose blood and die. Rapid blood loss from a gunshot wound is the number one preventable cause of death on the battlefield. Due to a massive disruption of blood flow, shots to the heart will cause a person to bleed out and become incapacitated within 10 seconds. Other shots that sever brachial arteries in the arms or bilateral inguinal arteries in the groin will render a person incapacitated within minutes (this is the reason why aiming to shoot a person in the arms or legs to create a non-fatal flesh wound is a myth - major arteries in extremities still cause a person to bleed out quickly). Regardless, the effect from blood loss, even from injuries to the heart, is not immediate.. There is only one way to instantly incapacitate a person using a gun - disruption of the brain or spinal cord. Shots that hit the brain or sever the spinal cord will produce ...

These data were collected using the National Electronic Injury Surveillance System (NEISS), the primary data system of the United States Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC). CPSC began operating NEISS in 1972 to monitor product-related injuries treated in United States hospital emergency departments (EDs). In June 1992, the National Center for Injury Prevention and Control (NCIPC), within the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, established an interagency agreement with CPSC to begin collecting data on nonfatal firearm-related injuries to monitor the incidence and characteristics of persons with nonfatal firearm-related injuries treated in United States hospital EDs over time. This dataset represents all nonfatal firearm-related injuries (i.e., injuries associated with powder-charged guns) and all nonfatal BB and pellet gun-related injuries reported through NEISS from 1993 through 2000. The cases consist of initial ED visits for treatment of the injuries. Cases were reported even if ...

Accurately determining the costs of treating firearm injuries and who pays them has proved elusive, but a recently published study sheds some light on the issue. Stanford University School of Medicine researchers examined initial hospitalization charges for firearm injuries between 2006 and 2014 and reported that more than $734 million was spent annually, or more than $6.6 billion over the nine-year period. The researchers adjusted costs to 2014 dollars using Consumer Price Index rates. The researchers say those figures are a small fraction of the . . .

Thoracic Gunshot Wound: A Report of 3 Cases and Review of Management Thoracic gunshot injury may have variable presentation and the treatment plan differs from cas..
Abdominal vascular trauma is fairly common in modern civilian life and is a highly lethal injury. However, if the projectile is small enough, if its energy is diminished when passing through the tissue and if the arterial system is elastic enough, the entry wound into the artery may close without exsanguination and therefore may not be fatal. A projectile captured may even travel downstream until it is arrested by the smaller distal vasculature. The occurrence of this phenomenon is rare and was first described by Trimble in 1968. Here we present a case of a 29-year-old Albanian man who, due to a gunshot injury to the back, suffered fracture of his twelfth thoracic and first lumbar vertebra, injury to the posterior wall of his abdominal aorta and then bullet embolism to his left external iliac artery. It is interesting that the signs of distal ischemia developed several hours after the exploratory surgery, raising the possibility that the bullet migrated in the interim or that there was a failure to
Youve spent countless hours on the gun range, preparing to defend yourself or your family should the time come. Your grouping has greatly improved, and youre becoming much more accurate with every squeeze of the trigger. You think youre completely set, should you ever get in a firefight. Theres only one problem though, you havent prepared much on how to actually treat yourself or someone else if they get shot..
