blog

Reduction of Facial Fractures of Nose is a procedure performed to correct or treat nasal fractures caused by physical assaults, falls, sports injuries and road traffic accidents. In acute nasal fractures, a simple application of ice and analgesia is recommended. However, in more severe facial trauma, assessment and stabilization of the airway are required. It is performed using appropriate ATLS (Advanced Trauma Life Support) & PALS (Pediatric Advanced Life Support) protocols.
