This month’s question:
What factors should influence the decision to proceed to surgical fixation of rib fractures?
Does anyone have any experience/anecdotes of rib fixation improving the clinical position of a patient?
What regional analgesic strategies have people employed and have these been successful?
This month’s very recent paper comes out of SJUH’s Thoracic team on the above topic http://jtd.amegroups.com/article/view/28087/20912
