[Extract] Flail chest occurs in 5–13% of patients with chest wall injury and is associated with higher rates of pulmonary contusion compared with other types of chest wall trauma.1 Patients with multiple rib fractures are susceptible to intrathoracic, intra‐abdominal, upper extremity and head injuries. Up to 81%2 of patients with multiple rib fractures can develop haemothorax, which is usually evident on initial presentation.
