Nasal bones fractures

By Dr. Vishaal Bhat on Monday, 26 November, 2007 with 0 comments

A position of the nose skeleton at the face predisposes it to frequent injuries. An isolated damage may occur, however, adjacent bones are often damaged as well or the whole bone complexes are broken off.

Nasal bones get detached from the frontal processes of the maxilla s, or a frontal process is broken on one side and nasal bones are heaved at medial direction. If such an injury appears on both sides, nasal bones form a roof-like overlap. At the same time, nasal cartilaginous structures may be damaged, too.
