Abstract

Application value of rib surface positioning ruler combined with volumetric CT measurement in selection of the incision for minimally invasive internal fixation of rib fracture was investigated. A total of 80 patients who received internal fixation of rib fractures in Tianjin Hospital Affiliated to Tianjin University (Tianjin, China) from May 2018 to April 2019 were selected. Patients were treated with the rib surface positioning ruler combined with volumetric CT measurement method (n=42) or traditional positioning method (n=38). The following parameters were compared between the two groups: Preset incision accuracy, operation incision length, operation time, intraoperative bleeding volume, postoperative wound drainage volume and postoperative pain score. Compared with the traditional positioning method, rib surface positioning ruler combined with volumetric CT measurement method can improve preset incision accuracy, reduce operation time, incision length, intraoperative bleeding volume, postoperative wound drainage volume, and postoperative pain score, with statistically significant differences (P<0.05). In conclusion, the application of rib surface positioning ruler combined with volumetric CT measurement technique has obvious effect on the selection of incision for internal fixation of rib fracture, and is an effective method worth promoting.
