EAST guidelines suggest tube thoracostomy (TT) be considered for all traumatic hemothoraces. However, previous research has suggested that some traumatic hemothoraces may be observed safely. We sought to 1) determine the safety of selective observation for traumatic hemothorax, and 2) identify predictors of failed observation.
