    Isolated chest trauma is not historically considered to be a major risk factor for venous thromboembolism (VTE). After blunt chest trauma, VTE may be underappreciated because pain, immobility, and inadequate prophylaxis as a result of hemorrhage risk may all increase the risk of VTE. This...

    Massive extrapleural hematoma secondary to blunt chest trauma is exceedingly rare especially in nonanticoagulated patients. Significant amounts of blood can be sequestered between parietal pleura and the endothoracic facia leading to ventillatory and circulatory disturbances and even death. We...
