Summary

Recently, surgical stabilization of rib fractures, which involves an operation to place thin titanium plates across the fractures, has been shown to improve outcomes in patients with several fractures on the same ribs of the chest wall. Many surgeons who perform this operation regularly also believe that it will benefit patients with other severe forms of rib fractures, specifically 3 or more severely displaced fractures without multiple fractures of the same rib.
