Abstract

This paper stresses the importance of early evaluation of fracture nose in order to avoid complications. The diagnosis is made mainly based on clinical judgement. Closed reduction technique under general anesthesia within 2-10 days post injury is the standard treatment if needed. Failure by closed technique can be managed by septorhinoplasty months later.
