Abstract

Injuries caused by firearms often test the ingenuity of the surgical team. The variables encountered related to the hard and soft tissue destruction make each case unique. The only way to achieve predictable outcomes with these patients is to treat a large enough number that you are guided by your previous experience. This patient was another opportunity to add to our knowledge base for treating this difficult class of patient.
