A bullet wandering through the heart
Journal of Cardiovascular Computed Tomography , Volume 4 - Issue 2 p. 144- 146
We report a case of young male with a penetrating chest trauma due to a gunshot. The bullet was detected by conventional X-ray and localized within the lateral wall of the left ventricle by CT. During surgery the bullet was not found. Thereafter conventional X-ray showed migration of the bullet within the lung parenchyma.
