Gunshot injuries seen at Johannesburg Hospital during 1982.

Abstract

Gunshot injuries seen at Johannesburg Hospital during 1982 are reviewed. The incidence of these injuries has been increasing over the last few years, and they now cause a significant problem in terms of workload and number of beds occupied. The use of a rifle or handgun is becoming more common, not only for suicidal purposes but also as a weapon of assault.
