A Self-Inflicted Gunshot Wound With an Unusual Hand Injury.

Self-inflicted gunshot wounds are a common cause of firearm-related deaths. The appearance and location of the entry wound, other concomitant findings at autopsy, and correlation with the scene and circumstances are critical in determining the manner of death. A case of a 72-year-old man with a self-inflicted gunshot wound with an unusual injury pattern is described. There was a contact range gunshot entry in the right temple, and an exit wound was seen in the left parietal region. There was a re-entry with...


Treatment of Gunshot Wounds to the Spine during the Late 19 Century.

Delayed lethal pulmonary air embolism after a gunshot head injury.

We present a case of a young male patient with a fatal pulmonary air embolism following a penetrating gunshot head injury. He suffered from severe head trauma including a laceration of the superior sagittal sinus. Operative neurosurgical intervention did not establish a watertight closure of the wounds. Eight days after the trauma, the patient suddenly collapsed and died after an attempt to mobilise him to the vertical. Forensic autopsy indicated pulmonary air embolism as the cause of death. Retrospectively...


Atypical Suicide by Submachine Gun.

In case of suicide, the presence of multiple entrance wounds is always suspicious. We report the case of a man who committed suicide by shooting himself three times in the chest and the skull with a submachine gun. The weapon seems to have been initially pointed in the precordium area with a lethal lesion of the proximal aorta. Two other projectiles were fired by the weapon and hit the neck and the skull of the deceased. The presence of three entrance wounds despite a first fatal wound could finally be expl...

Comparison of Different Swabs for Sampling Inorganic Gunshot Residue from Gunshot Wounds: Applicability and Reliability for the Determination of Firing Distance.

This study concentrates on samples of bare pork skin, with and without bristles, and dried bovine ribs shot with a semi-automatic pistol to find the best methodology and sampling surface in the search for inorganic gunshot residues (IGSR). Four quadrants of known surface areas were sampled at different distances from the bullet's hole with different swabs: tapes in graphite, Leukosilk® white tape, 3M® transparent tape, and a cotton swab to assess the technique able to collect the highest amounts of IGSR w...

Comparison of meat quality characteristics and fatty acid composition of finished goat kids from indigenous and dairy breeds.

The aim of the study was to compare the certain carcass and meat quality traits and also fatty acid composition of goat kids from indigenous breeds (Gokceada and Hair Goat) and dairy breeds (Saanen and Maltese). A total 40 male kids from Saanen, Gokceada, Maltese and Hair Goat breeds were collected from commercial farms after weaning. Kids were finished for 56 days with grower concentrate and alfalfa hay in the sheepfold until slaughter. Higher mean values were found for Saanen kids in terms of slaughter w...

Time Heals All Wounds … But Wounds Heal Faster with Lactobacillus.

Chronic nonhealing wounds represent a significant clinical problem and cost the healthcare system $19 billion annually. Recently, Vågesjö et al. (2018) demonstrated a promising therapeutic approach for nonhealing wounds with topical application of CXCL12-producing Lactobacilli that enhanced healing through alterations in the wound microenvironment.

Transmammary transfer of toxicity to nursing kids from Isocoma pluriflora (rayless goldenrod) dosed to lactating goats.

Rayless goldenrod (RG; Isocoma pluriflora) poisons livestock in the southwestern U.S., west Texas, and northern Mexico. The putative toxin(s) have historically been thought to be benzofuran ketones. Goats have been used successfully as a model of RG poisoning. The transmammary transfer of toxicity to offspring from lactating goats has not been studied, thus the objective of this study was to determine if nursing kids would become poisoned via mother's milk when the dams were dosed with RG. Twelve lactating ...

Management of a posterior gunshot injury with a floating pedicle and cerebrospinal fluid leak.

Gunshot injury to the spine can be devastating, and it has increased in the civilian population during the last decade.

Negative pressure wound therapy for open traumatic wounds.

Traumatic wounds (wounds caused by injury) range from abrasions and minor skin incisions or tears, to wounds with extensive tissue damage or loss as well as damage to bone and internal organs. Two key types of traumatic wounds considered in this review are those that damage soft tissue only and those that involve a broken bone, that is, open fractures. In some cases these wounds are left open and negative pressure wound therapy (NPWT) is used as a treatment. This medical device involves the application of a...

Utilization of a Viable Human Amnion Membrane Allograft in Elderly Patients With Chronic Lower Extremity Wounds of Various Etiologies.

ntroduction. Chronic nonhealing wounds are a growing health care problem in the United States, afflicting more than 6.5 million patients annually. In particular, diseases that compromise skin integrity and impair normal wound healing processes, such as diabetes and peripheral vascular diseases, are becoming more common in the aging population and leading to ever-increasing incidence of these chronic nonhealing wounds.

Genotypes and subtypes of Cryptosporidium spp. in diarrheic lambs and goat kids in northern Greece.

Inconsistent data exist on the distribution of zoonotic Cryptosporidium species and subtypes in sheep and goats in European countries, and few such data are available from Greece. In this study, 280 fecal specimens were collected from 132 diarrheic lambs and 148 diarrheic goat kids aged 4 to 15 days on 15 farms in northern Greece, and examined for Cryptosporidium spp. using microscopy of Ziehl-Neelsen-stained fecal smears. Cryptosporidium spp. in 80 microscopy-positive fecal specimens (39 from lambs and 4...

Photonic technology for the treatments of the venous and arterial ulcers: Case report.

In this report, we recent a case study on a 50-year-old male patient with different chronic wounds, such as venous ulcer and arterial ulcer in both legs. These wounds have persisted for more than 10 years, despite the different treatments applied, between safenectomy, different dressings, hyperbaric camera, as well as the used of several medicines of oral and topical application. The case is addressed with the aim to evaluate if treatment that uses combined techniques such as low level laser therapy (LLLT),...

Use of postmortem computed tomography to retrieve small metal fragments derived from a weapon in the bodies of victims in two homicide cases.

Postmortem computed tomography (PMCT) is becoming a commonly used modality in routine forensic investigation. Mechanical injuries including lacerations, incisions, stab wounds and gunshot wounds frequently contain foreign bodies that may have significant value as clues in criminal investigations. CT is a sensitive modality for detection of metal foreign bodies that may be associated with injuries to the victim in cases of homicide or traffic accidents. Here we report two cases in which PMCT was able to act ...

Supplementing goat kids with coconut medium chain fatty acids in early life influences growth and rumen papillae development until 4 months after supplementation but effects on in vitro methane emissions and the rumen microbiota are transient.

The aim of this study was to investigate the methane (CH4) reducing potential of a combination of pre- and/or postnatal treatment with coconut oil medium chain fatty acids (CO MCFA) in goat kids. The hypothesis is that influencing rumen function during early life has more chances for success than in the adult life, related to the resilience of the mature rumen microbiota. Forty-eight pregnant does were split into 2 experimental groups: treated does (D+) received 40 g/d of CO MCFA in a test compound feed, wh...

Effect of a New Purified Collagen Matrix With Polyhexamethylene Biguanide on Recalcitrant Wounds of Various Etiologies: A Case Series.

The management of chronic, nonhealing wounds in patients with multiple comorbidities continues to be a challenge for health care practitioners. Chronic wounds typically do not progress through the normal phases of wound healing and generally remain stagnant during the inflammatory phase, resulting in an increase in proteolytic enzymes with degradation of the extracellular matrix. Bacterial biofilm has been documented to be one of the main factors delaying wound healing, resulting in the prolongation of the ...

Immunomodulation as Rescue for Chronic Atonic Skin Wounds.

Chronic skin wounds, caused by arterial or venous insufficiency or by physical pressure, constitute an increasing medical problem as populations age. Whereas typical wounds are characterized by local inflammation that participates in the healing process, atonic wounds lack inflammatory markers, such as neutrophil infiltration, and generally do not heal. Recently, prominent roles in the immunopathology of chronic wounds were attributed to dysregulations in specific cytokines, chemokines, matrix metalloprotei...

Age-related immune response to experimental infection with Eimeria ninakohlyakimovae in goat kids.

Both the immune response developed in ruminants against Eimeria spp. and the ability to bear patent infections seems to be dependent on the age of the host. In the present study we have evaluated the influence of the age in the development of protective immune responses against Eimeria ninakohlyakimovae. For this purpose, 3, 4 and 5-week-old goat kids were infected with sporulated oocysts and subjected to a homologous challenge 3 weeks later. Goat kids primary infected at 6, 7 and 8 weeks of age served ...

Effective and comfortable debridement is an important part of managing complex wounds. This user test evaluated a monofilament-fibre pad (with handle) (Debrisoft Lolly, Lohmann & Rauscher GmbH & Co. KG) in the debridement of various hard-to-reach wounds.

Percutaneous Transjugular Extraction of Venous Bullet Embolism to the Right Ventricle.

Migration of a bullet to a distant part of the body after a gunshot is rarely observed in the clinical setting furthermore migration to the heart is even rare. There are usually no clear symptoms or signs from migration of a bullet. The case of a 28 years old man with an intracardiac bullet migration, 2 months after a gunshot wound to the right abdomen is presented. We suggest that the bullet migrated along vena cava to the right ventricle. Interventional radiology with a percutaneous transjugular extractio...

Heel Wounds Predict Mortality but Not Amputation After Infrapopliteal Revascularization.

Ischemic heel ulcerations are generally thought to carry a poor prognosis for limb salvage. We hypothesized that patients undergoing infrapopliteal revascularization for heel wounds, either bypass or endovascular intervention, would have lower wound healing rates and amputation-free survival than patients with forefoot wounds.

Forensic medical aspects of femicide in Jordan.

This study aims to highlight three types of femicide in Jordan - so-called 'honour killings', fatal intimate partner violence (IPV), and domestic violence committed by male family members other than the husband (DV) - and to compare them with the killing of women in non-gender related situations such as during a robbery. The autopsy reports of 100 adult female homicide victims dealt with at Jordan University Hospital in Amman during a 10-year period from 2006 to 2015 were reviewed. Based on information cont...

Clinical Application of 3-Dimensional Continuous Suturing Technique for Triangular Wounds.

Although there are numerous skin closure methods, there is no special method for suturing triangular skin wounds. The authors have summarized and modified their experience with a 3-dimensional (3D) continuous suturing technique for triangular wounds.

Local warming therapy for treating chronic wounds: A systematic review.

Several studies suggest that local warming therapy (LWT) may help to treat chronic wounds, such as pressure ulcers, venous ulcers, arterial ulcers, and diabetic foot ulcers. However, evidence supporting the efficacy of this treatment is still incomplete. This study aimed to assess the effects of LWT in treating chronic wounds.
