|Abstract:||© 2020 Elsevier Ltd and Faculty of Forensic and Legal Medicine Myocardial tissue embolism due to gunshot wound is a very rare event, as only a few cases of myocardial tissue embolization, occurring after cardiac surgery or myocardial infarction, have been reported. According to this study's referenced report from forensic autopsy, one case of myocardial tissue emboli to the lung has been found, in an Asian male, 22 years old, who died from a gunshot to the chest by a handgun. From the examination, myocardial tissue embolism was considered important forensic evidence, showing that the gunshot occurred while the victim was still alive, and that he also survived for some period of time after being shot.|
