Osteosynthesis of rib fractures, unstable chest wall, pseudoarthroses, and acquired defects of the chest wall
Several patients suffer from rib fractures after traumas, and in severe cases it can be life-threatening. Until recently, attempts to perform surgical fixation in patients with instability have been unsuccessful. Chronic non-union causes persistent pain, disability and loss of quality of life. Implementation of surgical stabilization of rib fractures with tailored plates seems to improve pain relief, especially in cases of non-union but also in patients with instability of the chest wall after severe traumas, where advanced pain treatment (epidural catheter) is insufficient or weaning off fails.
