Transmediastinal gunshot injuries present the risk of immediately life threatening injuries. Stable patients have been evaluated by a combination of esophageal swallow and endoscopy, aortography and bronchoscopy. There is an increasing trend favoring CT scan. Unstable patients require immediate exploration, being prepared to enter both hemi-thoraces. Selected References: * Bergsland J, Karamanoukian HL, Soltoski PR, Salerno TA.
