    Abstract

    In summary, the incidence of BCI following blunt thoracic trauma patients has been reported between 20% and 76%, and no gold standard exists to diagnose BCI. Diagnostic tests should be limited to identify those patients who are at risk of developing cardiac complications as a result of BCI. Therapeutic interventions should be directed to treat the complications of BCI. Finally, the prognosis and outcome of BCI patients is encouraging.
