J Am Coll Surg 1998 ;187:130–138.[doi.org] Secondly, acquired fractures can show bone sclerosis in the rib adjacent to the defect and ineffective callus formation.[bjsm.bmj.com] BACKGROUND: Recently, rib fracture fixation for flail chest has been used increasingly at both academic and nonacademic trauma centers.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

Our mortality rate for flail chest was 17%, closer to the lower level of this range.[academic.oup.com]
