A Statewide Assessment of Rib Fixation Patterns Reveals Missed Opportunities.

08:00 EDT 9th July 2019 | BioPortfolio

Summary of "A Statewide Assessment of Rib Fixation Patterns Reveals Missed Opportunities."

Rib fractures are a common consequence of traumatic injury and can result in significant debilitation. Rib fixation offers fracture stabilization, resulting in improved outcomes and decreased pulmonary complications, especially in high-risk groups such as those with flail segments. However, commercial rib fixation has only recently become clinically prevalent, and we hypothesize that significant variability exists in its utilization based on injury pattern and trauma center.
