CORDOBA SORIANO, Juan G et al. Conservative Management of Projectile Impact on the Heart: Two Consecutive CasesConservative Management of Projectile Impact on the Heart: Two Consecutive Cases. Rev. argent. cardiol. [online]. 2012, vol.80, n.3, pp.250-252. ISSN 1850-3748.

Cardiac shotgun injuries affecting the heart, pericardium and great vessels are occasionally encountered in clinical practice. Specifically in Spain, pellet wounds from hunting accidents have increased. The treatment of these injuries is not standardized due to the small number of cases attended in each particular center. We present two consecutive cases of cardiac pellet-gun related injuries treated in our institution with a conservative approach, with favorable outcomes.

Keywords : Heart; Wounds and Injuries.
