We present a review of the case, management, and progress of an obstetric patient, who suffered a car accident with subsequent severe blunt thoracic trauma (BTT) resulting in flail chest (FC).
This is a Hispanic female of 44 years involved in a car accident at 14 weeks of gestation, who presented with FC, sternal fracture, and severe respiratory compromise. This woman received surgical management and care in an intensive obstetric care management unit, presenting with osteomyelitis as a complication, along with physical deconditioning and prolonged hospital stay, finally with an obstetric and functional favorable outcome.
