An Unusual Cause of Abdominal Pain: Three Lead Pellets within the Appendix Vermiformis
TLDR
Pathologically, three lead pellets were embedded in the appendix, which showed signs of intramucosal inflammation, and an appendectomy was required to remove the ingested lead pellets. Expand
Lead in Ammunition: A Persistent Threat to Health and Conservation
TLDR
Recent evidence for exposure to lead-based ammunition and health implications across many species is summarized and transdisciplinary science-based approaches are needed to translate the science informing on this issue and establish education and outreach efforts that focus on concerns brought forth by key stakeholders. Expand
Appendicitis Caused by Metallic Foreign Body in the Appendix
TLDR
A case with a metallic foreign body-induced appendicitis is described, and suggestion is made in regards to the diagnosis and management of the problem. Expand
Lead Pellet Ingestion and Liver-Lead Concentrations in Upland Game Birds from Southern Ontario, Canada
TLDR
Data indicate that the ingestion of lead pellets in upland game birds and the potential consumption of lead-contaminated meat by humans are concerns related to the continued use of lead shotshell for hunting. Expand
Sources and implications of lead ammunition and fishing tackle on natural resources
EXTENDED ABSTRACT.—A technical review of lead sources that originate from hunting, shooting sports, and fishing activities (Rattner et al. 2008) was undertaken to provide background information forExpand
The identification of lead ammunition as a source of lead exposure in First Nations: the use of lead isotope ratios.
TLDR

Toxicology of ingested lead shot in ringed turtle doves
TLDR
Brain, liver, and kidney lead concentrations were significantly higher in doves that ingested lead shot, and measurement of ALAD activity and blood lead offers potential for monitoring lead concentrations in wild mourning dove populations. Expand
