Self-inflicted face gunshot injuries: two case reports

Rokas Gelažius1, David Kasradze2, Albinas Gervickas1,2

Summary

Self-inflicted gunshot injuries to the head and neck area are challenging cases. Immediate and complex approach is required due to complexity of head and neck anatomy. The extent of injury largely depends on velocity of a rifle and penetrated tissues. Management of these type of patients consist of vital resuscitation, primary wound management, soft and hard tissue reconstruction and rehabilitation. Here we present two cases of self-inflicted gunshot injuries with low and high velocity rifles.

Key words: self-inflicted wounds, SIW, face gunshot injury, maxillofacial reconstruction.
