Abstract

Gunshot injuries sustained from rifle bullets in general are associated with more severe tissue destruction than similar injuries due to handgun bullets. This includes damage not directly attributable to the missile itself, in other words, that due to cavitation. We describe herein a colonic injury following a 0.223 caliber rifle bullet injury presumably due solely to blast effect.
