Example text

Dudkiewicz bacteriologic counts were approximately 102. 8 × 105, respectively, showing that the critical level of bacteria is reached in projectile tracks of low-velocity gunshot wounds within 24 h of injury [46]. This explains why at least 24 h of intravenous antibiotic treatment is required in fractures caused by high-velocity weapons in conjunction with the appropriate wound and fracture care. Similarly, in fractures caused by shotguns, thorough wound debridement and 24–48-h administration of intravenous antibiotics are necessary.

Course Lect. 1 Introduction With globally increasing war, conflicts and terrorism acts, blast or bullet limb injuries are seen more often and present a surgical challenge. The amount of tissue damage and the injury severity of gunshot injuries are due to the energy transmitted by the bullets or projectiles, depending mainly on their velocity. ” Blast injuries are also energy related and mainly dependent upon the distance from the blast, the energy released from the bombing device, the media (air or water) and the environment in which the blast takes place (close or open).

2 Bullet and Projectile Ballistics Projectile or bullet injuries may be classified as “lowenergy” or “high-energy,” which describe the amount of damage to the tissues. The factor that most affects N. il I. com the injury severity is the amount and the efficiency of energy transfer [1–5], which is mostly related to kinetic energy that is presented by the equation “Energy transferred = ½ M [(V entering)2 − (V exiting)2] (M – mass; V – velocity)” in a bullet that does not “waste” energy on deforming.
