Three patients with gunshot wounds to facial and vascular structures were described. They demonstrate the importance of angiography in the acute care phases of treatment. In one case, angiography lead to eventual surgical management of an arteriovenous fistula. The other two cases described arterial injury that required careful surgical follow-up to detect delayed complications.
