The bone that is most damaged by trauma to the face as a result of an accident is the nasal bone. The fracture is more often the result of blows from the side. Although the fracture of the nose sometimes manifests itself with a slight crack without causing displacement of the bone, fractures with multiple fragments and collapses of the bone can also develop with severe trauma. In patients with a broken nasal bone, if there is no displacement, it may be enough to just put a tampon in the nose and provide support. But in patients with displacement and deformity, it is necessary to correct the fracture of the nose with surgical intervention.
When the nose is broken, not only bone tissue is affected. However, the structure of cartilage tissue also changes. It is known that the most common fracture in blows to the face occurs in the nose. There may be many symptoms for a broken nasal bone.
If you have these symptoms, be sure to consult a doctor:
A fracture of the nasal bone can occur for many reasons. It can occur during sports activities that are performed unconsciously. In addition, it is necessary to be careful when playing sports. As a result of a blow to the nose during violent fights, the nose may break. Among the most common causes are also accidents. It is possible that the nose will be broken in car accidents or motorcycle accidents. Alcohol or drug use should be avoided. In many cases of fractures that have occurred, patients do not even remember how their nose was broken due to the substances they took. In addition, the nose of many patients who do not notice the glass surfaces and fall is being installed. Apart from these reasons that cause a broken nose, the treatment process should be started before it is too late. It is possible to have surgery due to nasal bone fracture surgery.
The most ideal time for treatment of the nasal bones is the first few hours. Since edema has not yet developed during this period, the procedure is easier. For nose fracture surgery, if the edema is too much, the intervention is postponed for 3-5 days because the shape of the nose cannot be evaluated well. But since the bones will begin to boil in patients who have had more than 2 weeks, nose fracture surgery is performed with Rhinoplasty techniques after 3-6 months.
