  • [Title] VAC® for external fixation of flail chest.
  • A large aterior chest wall defect following tumor resection was reconstructed with a Gore-Tex® membrane and a combined musculocutaneous rectus femoris and tensor fasciae latae free flap.
  • Appliance of Vacuum Assisted Closure® (VAC®) resulted in immediate chest wall stability and a decrease in the patient's need for respiratory support.
  • It is likely that external VAC® can improve thoracic stability and pulmonary function in a patient with flail chest and decrease the need for mechanical ventilation.

  • [Title] Flail chest stabilization with Nuss operation in presence of multiple myeloma.
  • However, much debate and concern have been raised regarding its applicability in adults with pectus excavatum flail chest and other thoratic wall deformities, as compared with younger patients, in terms of complications after surgery.
  • To stabilize the segment of paradoxical chest wall movement we performed the Nuss operation on a patient with multiple myeloma who sustained blunt thoracic trauma.

  • [Title] Successful operative rib fixation of traumatic flail chest in a patient with osteogenesis imperfecta.
  • Increasing attention has been directed towards operative rib fixation of traumatic flail chest; reported benefits include more rapid weaning from the ventilator, decreased intensive care unit stays, decreased complications and improved functional results.
  • This case demonstrates that, in the management of traumatic flail chest in a patient with osteogenesis imperfecta, surgical fixation can be successful and should be considered early.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Prognostic factors in flail-chest patients.
  • OBJECTIVE: The records of 250 patients presenting with flail-chest injury in a level I trauma centre were reviewed and analysed in order to determine prognostic factors.
  • METHODS: There were 250 consecutive trauma patients with flail chest, 183 men (73.2%) and 67 women (26.8%) ranging in age from 18 to 91 years, admitted to our hospital.
  • Patients were divided into three groups: group I consisted of 105 patients (70/35) with an isolated flail chest (Injury Severity Score (ISS): 16); group II included 58 cases (48/10) with extrathoracic fractures (ISS: 25-30); and group III comprised 87 patients (65/22) with injuries to the brain or to thoracic or abdominal organs requiring thoracotomy and/or laparotomy (ISS: >40).
  • (1) ISS is the strongest predictor of outcome associated with increased mortality; and (2) mechanical support was not considered a necessity for the treatment of flail chest.

  • [Title] 'Findings' associated with 'Chest Flailed': Top Publications.
  • [Transliterated title]
  • Background: There are articles published each month which present 'Finding' for 'chest flailed'.
  • Finding such articles is important for researchers, clinicians, and patients.
  • However these articles are spread across thousands of journals, and there are many types of 'Finding'.
  • This makes searching and locating the relevant publications a challenge.
  • We have used BioMedLib's semantic search technology to address the issue, and gathered all the pertinent publications in this review article.
  • Methods: We categorized the publications we found into two groups.
  • We used the strength of textual-association to separate the groups.
  • In group one there are publications with the strongest evidence of association. We focused finding the most relevant publications pertinent to our goal, rather than combining them into a conclusion section. Such textual synthesis will be the focus of our next project.
  • Results: Group one includes 33 publications, and group two 132 publications.
  • Here are the top 10.
