Abstract

Whilst a missile embolizing to the right side of the heart is a common occurrence, embolization to the pulmonary arteries is rare. We report a case of a bullet entering through the right internal jugular vein to the right ventricle, and then migrating to the left pulmonary artery, and its management. To our knowledge, this is the first reported such case from the Indian subcontinent.
