This happens in all kinds of projectile wounds. Weapon fragments have been shown experimentally to cut clothing and skin and to transport these into the wound [45]. In contrast to lowenergy wounds where the contamination is very limited and close to the wound track, in high-energy wounds the fragments tend to shred clothing into finer pieces, these accompanied with the high-energy projectile drive these particles throughout the large temporary cavity so that contamination is dispersed widely away from the wound track [8].
