MACHADO, Alexandre de Tarso et al. Transthoracic retrograde venous bullet embolism: case report and review of the literature. J. vasc. bras. [online]. 2008, vol.7, n.4, pp.393-396. ISSN 1677-5449.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S1677-54492008000400017.

Bullet embolism is a rare event when providing care to traumatized patients. These cases usually present with few symptoms or are asymptomatic, and treatment is controversial, in spite of the evolution observed. The endovascular approach has stood out as a treatment modality for this type of embolism with low morbidity and mortality rates. This article reports the case of a 30-year-old male patient victim of gunshot thorax injury with multiple entrance signs who was successfully submitted to bullet removal by endovascular technique after failed attempt by thoracotomy.

Palavras-chave : Treatment; embolism; bullet.
