The lower ribs are mobile and less susceptible to compression injury. Fractures due to direct trauma and injuries to the diaphragm, liver, or spleen may be associated. Flail chest occurs with double fractures of three or more adjacent ribs, or a rib fracture associated with a sternal fracture or costochondral separation. This life-threatening complication is usually obvious clinically. Sternum fracture Fracture of the sternum is rarely identified on frontal films, but well seen on lateral radiographs.
The next most common site is the ascending aorta. Multiple tears are said to occur in 15–20% of patients. The mechanism of injury is probably a shearing force at the isthmus, as the aortic arch is fixed by the great vessels, while the more mobile descending aorta is snapped forward during deceleration. The laceration is usually transverse, proceeding from the intima outward. Survival depends upon the tear being restricted to the intima or the intima and media. The intact adventitia will contain the blood within a 46 Chapter 3 Disease Entities false aneurysm, which can rupture hours to years later.
On the lateral radiograph, the aorta crossing from left to right may appear as a ‘coin’ lesion seen end-on. ) Calcification of tracheobronchial tree.
