A Case of the Surviving From Gunshot Injury Without Operation

Introduction: Cases of gunshot injuries among trauma patients admitted in the emergency room are fatal cases in Turkey as much as all over the world. It is perhaps the most complex group among trauma patients. Because the route of the bullet fragment, how much damage it causes on its way and which organ or organs will be harmed cannot be understood immediately so long-term follow-up may be required.

Case report: A 48-year-old civilian male patient brought to our hospital after gunshot injury. It was found that he was injured with pellets in many parts of his body. He was not operated on to prevent possible bleeding and to remove the pellets. Instead, vital signs were followed.

Results and Conclusion: Most of the patients who are injured by guns die. The most important reason for this is acute and large amount of bleeding. In this article, we will present a patient who has been exposed to multiple pellet shots but survived.

Key words: Emergency Service,Gunshot injury, multiple injury, trauma
