dc.description.abstractThe aim of this research was to evaluate maxillofacial weapon-related injuries from the epidemiological, clinical, and forensic points of view. Analysis of medical records of 183 patients treated for weapon-related injuries in Belgrade maxillofacial surgery clinics in the period 1988 through 2002 has been carried out. Most treated patients were male, 21 to 50 years of age, and injured during the war in the territory of the former Yugoslavia. Injuries involving the mandible were the most frequent (40%); firearm (85%) and perforating (70%) wounds occurred more frequently than explosive (25%) and penetrating (30%) wounds; in certain cases, medical records were incomplete and thus useless for forensic court expertise and evidence. A rapid increase in maxillofacial weapon-related injuries was recorded in the period from 1991 to 1995 as a result of war injuries; high-velocity projectiles caused most of the injuries. It is necessary to keep adequate medical records for successful forensic and court expertise and evidence.en
