Rib Fixation for Clinically Severe Rib Fractures From Trauma

This study will compare the outcomes of patients between two standard of care pathways for rib trauma: those who have their ribs plated versus those who are managed by modern critical care and pain control. A study nurse (project) coordinator will identify subjects based on inclusion and exclusion criteria, then ...

Phase N/A

PEF-Block & Ribs Fractures

Rib fractures are frequent injuries found approximately in 10% severe trauma patient. Rib fractures were correlated in many studies with a higher morbidity and mortality. This impaired outcome is mainly due to pulmonary complications consequences including especially pulmonary contusions. Frequently, patients present difficulty deep breathing and coughing. These adverse effects ...

Phase N/A

Orthosis of Acute Traumatic Rib Fractures Via RibFx Belt for Pain Alleviation and Improved Pulmonary Function

The purpose of this study is to ascertain whether the use of next generation rib orthosis belts (such as the RibFx) can improve patient outcomes following traumatic rib fractures within our population, whether it be by improving pain control, decreased respiratory complications, or increased patient satisfaction. The investigators hypothesize that ...

Phase N/A

Driving Pressure in Trauma

Traumatic chest injuries are responsible for significant morbidity and the cause of trauma-related death in 20%-25% of cases. Thoracic trauma can include multiple injuries, mainly osseous (ribs, sternal fractures, flail chest), pulmonary contusions or lacerations, pneumothoraces and pleural effusions, and sometimes involve wounds to the heart and vessels (aortic dissection, ...

Phase N/A

The Management of Traumatic Hemothoraces

Chest injuries are common in patients with polytrauma and are responsible for approximate 25% of all trauma-related mortalities. Traumatic injuries to the thorax often result in the accumulation of blood within the pleural space (i.e. a hemothorax (HTX)). The management of HTX remains a clinical dilemma when the volume of ...
