Abstract

Two first class cricket bowlers presented with costoiliac pain secondary to rib impingement. In both patients, conservative management of the injury had failed to improve symptoms. Surgical resection of the affected rib was undertaken. At follow up, both patients had made a good recovery and had returned to competitive cricket.
