Primary blast injury: Primary blast injury is due to the supersonic over-pressurization blast wave unique to high-order (HE) explosives. HE devices involve a detonation or the nearly instantaneous Missing: intestinal blast. Primary blast injury affecting the GI tract is rare and usually accompanies primary blast injury to other organs. Shock waves cause compression then rapid re-expansion of the gas-filled gut, putting the gut wall under tension and causing acute, often multifocal perforation and mural haemorrhage (Fig 1). Results: A total of survivors were examined; (%) of them sustained primary blast injuries, including with isolated eardrum perforation and 51 with other forms of blast injuries (18 with isolated pulmonary blast injury, 31 with combined otic and pulmonary injuries, and 2 with intestinal blast injury). Blast lung injury was. Although rare, blast injury to the intestine can result from penetrating thoraco-abdominal extra-peritoneal gunshot (and shotgun) wounds despite the absence of injury to the diaphragm or to the peritoneum. Injuries of the spleen, small intestine and the mesentery by this mechanism have been previously reported in the world literature.

Such injury, due only to exposure to blast wave (primary blast) and not to other consequences of proximity to an explosion (for example penetrating – secondary blast – or burn injuries – quaternary blast) is known as primary blast lung injury (PBLI).   Irwin RJ, Lerner MR, Bealer JF, et al.
