Background and Objectives
Traditionally nasal bone fracture repair has been performed separately with more refined septorhinoplasty being reserved until all edema and other acute effects of nasal injury have regressed or stabilized. However a question arise whether more involved septorhinoplasty procedures could be done at the same time as nasal bone fracture reduction. But little literature were found in the outcomes. We studied the clinical outcomes of patients that rhinoplasty was performed concomitantly with nasal bone fracture reduction.
Materials and Method
S: We studied 20 patients that septorhinoplasty were performed concomitantly with nasal bone fracture reduction. Doctor's and patient's satisfaction was investigated after minimal 6 months later using visual analogue scale. Operative methods and complications were studied. All results were statistically confirmed.
Generally post-operative result was satisfied. But, in a patient with severe fracture, 2nd rhinoplasty was performed for proper correction. Other complications were not found.
We concluded that septorhinoplasty procedures was done at the same time as nasal bone fracture reduction showed good result in selective cases.
