Abstract Background We investigated the impact of blunt pulmonary contusion (BPC) in patients with rib fractures. Methods Adult patients with rib fractures caused by blunt mechanisms were enrolled over 3 years at a Level 1 trauma center. BPC was defined according to percentage of lung affected as: moderate (1–19% contusion) or severe (≥20% contusion). Results In total, 1448 of the 7238 admitted patients had rib fractures. Of these, 321 (22.2%) had BPC: 236 moderate and 85 severe. Patients with B...
