Fracture Nasal Bone

What is Fracture Nasal Bone?

A broken nose, also known as a nasal fracture, is a break or split in one of your nose’s bones, most commonly the bone above the bridge.
Contact sports, physical conflicts, falls, and motor vehicle accidents that result in facial trauma are all common causes of a broken nose. Swelling and bruises around the nose and the eyes are common symptoms of a broken nose. It’s possible that your nose is crooked, and you’re having difficulties breathing.
Procedures to straighten your nose may be used to treat a fractured nose. A fractured nose typically does not necessitate surgery.


Symptoms of a fractured nose include:
• When you touch your nose, you may experience pain or soreness.
• Your nose and surrounding regions are swollen.
• Bruising around the eyes or nose
• a nose that is crooked or malformed
• Breathing via your nose is challenging.


The following are some of the most common reasons for a fractured nose:
• Contact sports, such as football or hockey, can cause injury.
• Physical squabbles
• Automobile collisions
• Falls
Walking into a fixed object, such as a door or wall, or violent, wrestling-style play, can all result in a fractured nose.


These recommendations can help you avoid a nose fracture:
• When driving in a motor vehicle, always buckle up and keep youngsters in age-appropriate child safety seats.
• When playing hockey, football, or other contact sports, use the required safety equipment, such as a helmet with a face mask.
• When riding a bike or a motorbike, always wear a helmet.


The following are some of the complications or injuries that might occur as a result of a broken nose:

Deviated Septum:
A deviated septum, which happens when the thin wall connecting the two sides of your nose (nasal septum) is moved, limiting your nasal channel, can be caused by a nose fracture. Decongestants and antihistamines can help you cope with a deviated septum, but surgery is necessary to repair the problem.

Septal Hematoma:
In a broken nose, pools of clotted blood can develop, causing a condition known as a septal hematoma. One or both nostrils might get blocked by a septal hemorrhage. To avoid cartilage damage, a septal hematoma requires immediate surgical drainage.

Fracture of the cartilage:
You may also have a cartilage fracture if your fracture was caused by a strong blow, such as an automobile collision. If your damage is serious enough to require surgery, the surgeon should take care of both your bone and cartilage problems.
