概要 We performed surgical fixation for flail chest injury in three elderly patients between 2014 and 2016. As surgical procedures using locked plates take a long time and are unsuitable for the thin rib bones in elderly patients, we used titanium rib stabilizers. The fixation procedure for rib stabilizers is very simple and useful for thin bones and comminuted fractures. In all three cases, the patient was extubated within 3 days postoperatively and hospitalized without pneumonia. Two patients were
discharged without complications, while one patient died of pulmonary embolism 3 months postoperatively.
