PMID:  23459434     Owner:  NLM     Status:  In-Data-Review    
Management of blunt injury to the boney thorax centers on the hospital; yet, these injuries continue to impact patients long after hospitalization. The purpose of this literature review was to identify long-term outcomes associated with this injury. A literature search found 616 studies and, after screening, yielded 6 articles for review. Patient and injury characteristics and postinjury assessment findings were explored. The impact of this injury can be prolonged and life altering, prompting the need for further investigation. A greater understanding of injury-specific posthospitalization outcomes could elucidate the impact of these injuries on patients, families, and society.
