Evaluation and management of paediatric nasal fractures
Ugeskr Læger 2019;181:V08180551
This is a review discussing evaluation and management of paediatric nasal fractures, which have been reported as one of the three most common facial bone fractures. Nasal fractures in children are usually treated with closed reduction after 3-5 days, while other injuries like septal haematoma must be treated at the initial presentation. It is important to pay careful attention to the nasal anatomy during the surgical management of paediatric nasal injuries, as disturbing the nasal growth zones can have an impact on future nasal development.
