Fatal bleeding after lesion of a peripheral vein vessel: case report and literature review

D. Capano, I. Mercurio, R. Costa, M. Benvenuti, M. Gabbrielli

Abstract: We report a case of fatal vein bleeding in a 48 years old man, with a story of drug addiction, who tried to cut off a vascular neoformation from his right arm, using a pair of scissors. The particular typology of the lesions described during the autopsy, the dynamic of the death and the lack of scientific literature concerning this kind of lesions make this case report significant for analysis of death by exsanguination.
Keywords: peripheral venous injuries, hemorrhage, exsanguination.
