Abstract

Epidemiology of severe chest trauma in an urban referral hospital. Analysis of 5 years. The authors re-examined 198 cases of severe chest trauma presented in their hospital in 1983-1987. They analyse the clinical conditions, the diagnostic and therapeutic procedures, the results and complications and evaluate each patient according to the ISS code to compare them with the literature data, for the dead patients they classify the lesions according to the autoptic examinations. They confirm in this the validity of the ISS that can be well correlated with: mortality, length of survival and length of hospitalisation, they indicate important prognostic factors such as: age, association with extra thoracic lesions and number of intrathoracic lesions. Plotting the mortality in function of the time, they stress the need for an expert team in the first hours after trauma to manage such patients.
