Embolization by a dislodged projectile is a rare complication that may occur in cases of gunshot cardiac injuries. We report a case of a firearm projectile cardiac injury that evolved, with dislocation of the projectile during cardiac surgery, into embolization of the right external carotid artery.
Low QRS amplitude in V1, with relative three-to-fourfold or greater increase in V2, is considered an indirect sign of right atrium enlargement (Peñaloza-Tranchesi sign). We describe a patient with Peñaloza-Tranchesi sign caused by an ascending aortic aneurysm, with normalization of the QRS complex amplitude in V1 after aortic replacement.
