Abstract:
The traditional teaching states that upper rib fractures are associated with severe trauma and a high risk of neurovascular insult.; We present the case of an 18-year-old male who sustained an isolated, uncomplicated fracture of the first rib by falling on his elbow during a soccer match.; This case illustrates that an uncomplicated upper rib fracture can occur with minor trauma. The term "rebound" fracture is proposed for this type of rib injury.
