Abstract

Thirty-two patients with cardiac wounds from high velocity firearms (bullets or shrapnel) were operated. Seven of these patients who had no cardiac activity on arrival underwent emergency thoracotomy with a mortality of 85%. The other twenty-five patients underwent planned sternotomy with a mortality of 12%. The authors analyse these case with emphasis on the diagnostic and therapeutic management.
