Abstract

High-velocity gunshot and shrapnel-blast vascular injuries pose a great challenge and need to be approached in a systematic, multidisciplinary fashion. Early revascularization with temporary shunts, the use of autologous tissue, major venous reconstruction, a low threshold for fasciotomy, and reliable tissue coverage are the mainstays of management.
