Pectus excavatum in blunt
chest trauma: a case report
Blunt cardiac rupture is an
exceedingly rare injury.
We report a case of blunt cardiac
trauma in a 43-year-old Caucasian German mother with pectus excavatum who
presented after a car accident in which she had been sitting in the front seat
holding her two-year-old boy in her arms. The mother was awake and alert during
the initial two hours after the accident but then proceeded to hemodynamically
collapse. The child did not sustain any severe injuries. Intraoperatively, a
combined one-cm laceration of the left atrium and right ventricle was found.
Patients with pectus excavatum
have an increased risk for cardiac rupture after blunt chest trauma because of
compression between the sternum and spine. Therefore, patients with pectus
excavatum and blunt chest trauma should be admitted to a Level I Trauma Center
with a high degree of suspicion.
