One hundred patients underwent elective cranioplasty for high velocity missile injury of the head during a 30-month-period study and investigation in Amiralmomenin Hospital affiliated to Iran University of Medical Sciences. Deep penetrating wounds were the most frequent injuries seen during this study.

It was suggested that intermittent brain herniation was the probable cause of progressive brain damage.
