Abstract

A series of 123 patients who attended a district general hospital in Belfast over a 14-year period from 1975, sustained 126 plastic bullet injuries, resulting in one death and several serious injuries. This report shows the significant association of serious injury and/or death from plastic bullets in which the impact is above diaphragmatic level.
