nose fracture

nose fracture

A break in the short nasal bone forming the upper third of the nose. Such a fracture commonly results from external violence and may feature visible deformity or obstruction to breathing on one side from deviation of the NASAL SEPTUM. Broken noses are moulded back into shape by manipulation under anaesthesia. A plaster cast may be needed for 2 or 3 weeks.
