摘要

Gunshot wounds involving major joints can be lethal as a result of the disruption to major neurovascular tracts. We report on a high-energy ballistic injury resulting in a comminuted femoral neck fracture in an elderly patient with a surgical delay exceeding 20 h. The patient underwent bipolar hemiarthroplasty and led a functional, satisfactory life after surgery. Lead intoxication was also identified, and the blood lead concentration was almost two times the positive diagnostic value (25 μg/dL). The rebound in lead concentration suggested delayed lead toxicity. The patient did not have symptoms of plumbism at the last follow-up 4 years after the injury.
