Internal Carotid Artery Embolism by Shotgun Pellet

  • Jitendar M. Sethi (a1) and Bohdan Rozdilsky (a1)

Summary:

Various examples of foreign body embolization of cerebral arteries, usually followed by serious consequences, have been reported (Lindberg et al, 1961; Chason et al, 1963; Steele et al, 1972; Wetli et al, 1972). However, a shotgun pellet entering the left atrium of the heart through a gunshot wound of the chest with subsequent embolic occlusion of one of the carotid arteries appears to be unique. It is the subject of this short communication.
