Due to the substantial and continual increase in the number of motorized vehicles globally, clinicians are faced with an enormous population at risk for suffering internal mammary artery injuries after blunt chest trauma. Nevertheless, very little attention has been paid to this issue by relevant health practitioners. In addition, there is a scarcity of extant research data, as well as societal guidelines, regarding internal mammary artery injury. In cases with undetected internal mammary artery injury, however, the outcome may be catastrophic or fatal. Thus, investigating and reviewing the anatomy, etiology, diagnostic approaches, and treatment strategies for patients with internal mammary artery injury are urgently needed.
