A minefield trauma pattern
Objective. Сreation of pattern of a minefield trauma of different severity in the rats.
Маterials and methods. A minefield damage of soft tissues of the hip was simulated in rats, using a construction gun (СG) and a specially designed rack, which provided the CG fixation while shooting. The steel shrapnel were put into the CG stem to imitate the damages from the affecting elements.
Results. Маcroscopic estimation of the damages have shown, that they have the signs, characteristic for affection of the soft tissues by a shock wave, the flame jet and affecting elements. Possibility to vary the tissues affection degree at the expense of the powder charge size, absence or presence of affecting elements was shown.
Conclusion. The pattern proposed simulates a minefield trauma and may be applied in any scientific-research laboratory, dealing with experimental medicine.
