This video presents the diagnosis and treatment of slipped rib syndrome, a syndrome that is often missed. The Hansen's repair is a novel and very simple way to address this problem.
Slipped rib syndrome presents with significant pain over the anterior
lower rib cage. It is worse on movement and the hook test reproduces
the extreme pain. Dynamic ultrasounds can also help with the diagnosis,
although most patients’ pathways are littered with a long line of normal
tests, and many patients are left feeling that there is no organic
cause, often having had a futile cholecystectomy.
