Thoracic trauma is a major medical problem with high mortality. It is a life-threatening situation and frequently involves other anatomical areas that require simultaneous management. The typical management is supposed to be multidisciplinary and preferably started at the accident location and maintained during patient transport, through the arrival to the emergency department, through transport to surgical theatre, in the operation room and then in the ICU. Early management is the key to decrease morbidity and mortality. The aim of this study was to throw some light on the types of chest trauma with special reference to its recent management.
