Andrew Harston, Craig Roberts,

<h4>Background</h4>Traumatic sternal fractures occur in approximately 3% to 8% of all blunt trauma patients. Most of these fractures are treated conservatively, but a small number require operative intervention. Only a few studies have reported operative fixation of sternal fractures, and no investigation to our knowledge has systematically reviewed the literature ... Read more >>

Pain as an indication for rib fixation: a bi-institutional pilot study.

Marc de Moya, Thanos Bramos, Suresh Agarwal, Karim Fikry, Sumbal Janjua, David R King, Hasan B Alam, George C Velmahos, Peter Burke, William Tobler,

<h4>Background</h4>In trauma patients, open reduction and internal fixation of rib fractures remain controversial. We hypothesized that patients who have open reduction and internal fixation of rib fractures would experience less pain compared with controls and thus require fewer opiates. Further, we hypothesized that improved pain control would result in fewer ... Read more >>
