A linear metallic density object penetrates the right thigh at the level of the lesser trochanter, and is directed supero-medially. It runs through the substance of pectineus, and its tip sits in the proximal femoral triangle, between pectineus and iliopsoas. It appears to run just medial to the right femoral vein, though owing to metallic artefact, injury to the femoral vein cannot be excluded on imaging. Subcutaneous soft tissue stranding at the entry site, but no large thigh haematoma is identified.
Penetrating injury to right thigh. Nail passes in very close proximity to the right femoral vein and may contact the vein, though metallic artefact obscures fine detail in the region. No large thigh or groin haematoma.
