⚠️ A case of a gunshot wound to the face!


Facial gunshot wounds, often comprising significant soft and bone tissue defects, pose a significant challenge for reconstructive surgeons. Whether resulting from an assault, accident, or suicide attempt, a thorough assessment of the defects is essential for devising an appropriate tissue repair and replacement with a likely secondary revision. Immediately after injury, management is centred on advanced trauma life support with patient stabilization as the primary goal. Thorough examination along with appropriate imaging is critical for identifying any existing defects. The extent of soft tissue damage, immediately after injury, is typically not wholly apparent. High rates of significant tissue necrosis, ischemia, and infection further complicate reconstructive efforts.
