About

Tracheal intubation and general anesthesia has been considered a safe and conventional routine methodology for thoracic surgery, include multiple rib fratcure. However,adverse effects such as sore throat, pain, hoarseness, and respiratory complications are common after that. In this study, we decide to perform surgical stabiliazation of rib fractures by paravertebral block surgical stabiliazation of rib fractures under awake or appropriate sedation without endotracheal intubation keeping spontaneous respiration to investigate its safety and feasibility.

Full description

Rib fracture is common in the world,especially in chest trauma. Conservative treatment is used to it for many years but the effect is not well because of continuous pain caused by the dislocation of broken rib. Surgical stabiliazation of rib fractures can relieve the pain rapidly and help patient recover to work early. This kind of surgery is constantly conducted with tracheal intubation and general anesthesia. However,adverse effects such as sore throat, pain, hoarseness, and respiratory complications are common after that. So we think perform surgical stabiliazation of rib fractures under awake or appropriate sedation without endotracheal intubation keeping spontaneous respiration to investigate its safety and feasibility.
