Analysis of nasal septal fracture combined in nasal bone fracture using computerized tomography


There have been several reports that nasal bone fractures are inadequately managed. They are probably due to poor understanding of the pathophysiology of nasal bone fracture and absence of the accurate diagnostic method. And there has been little adequate comprehensive classification of nasal bone fracture and nasal septal fracture. We examed 132 patients sustaining nasal bone fracture using computerized tomography. Fracture line, deviation, depression, associated skeletal deformities and the nasal septum were clearly identified. We compared our results with Murray & Maran's classification of nasal bone fracture. We found that they revealed almost same results and computerized tomography was good method for diagnosis of nasal septal fracture. The computerized tomography will be helpful for accurate diagnosis and preperative planning of the correction of nasal bone and septal fracture.
