Clinico-morphological characteristics of injuries inflicted by shots from weapons of non-lethal action

Clinico-morphological characteristics of injuries inflicted by shots from weapons of non-lethal action

Vestnik Khirurgii Imeni I. I. Grekova 163(1): 62-64

The problem of studying injuries inflicted by different kinds of self-defense weapons is of great interest both to medical workers of different specialties (experts in forensic medicine, surgeons, toxicologists etc.) and to criminologists. Cases from practice of clinical and forensic medicine show that shots from pistols PB-4 with cartridges of traumatic action depending on the distance and the injured area as well as on other dynamic parameters of the interaction of the shell and the obstacle can cause injuries of different degrees of severity.
