Fracture of multiple ribs in more than one location can lead to flail chest or other associated thoracic injuries significantly compromising respiratory function.[4] Over 30% of patients with severe chest trauma will have some long-term disability and often do not return to full-time employment.[5] In addition, this results in social and economic costs, both to the US health care system and to individuals in the form of lost productivity and decreased quality of life (QOL).[6] Bhatnagar et al .[7] presented a model that looks specifically at long-term outcomes and QOL after SSRF in patients treated in North American trauma centers, and this Markov decision model was designed to compare the cost-effectiveness of nonoperative management versus SSRF of a flail chest.
