A penetrating brain injury is a head injury in which a foreign object breaks past the protection of the skull and breaches the outer layer of the meninges, and can possibly go all the way through the brain (perforating brain injury). Penetrating brain injuries can be caused by high velocity objects, such as bullets, or low velocity objects, such as knives or bone fragments due to a skull fracture. The injuries can cause extensive damage and bleeding in the brain, and infections are likely as well. High velocity penetrating brain injuries also have the risk of cavitation from a shock wave that is difficult to repair. Surgery is typically the treatment for penetrating brain injuries, but the majority of cases still result in either permanent brain damage or death.
