Abstract

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES: There are many factors affecting the satisfactory results of nasal bone fracture, such as age, sex, severity of nasal bone fracture and the time from the onset of injury to the beginning of treatment etc. The aim of this study is to evaluate the predictable factors of satisfaction for nasal bone fracture treatment.
MATERIALS AND METHODS
The authors retrospectively reviewed the medical records of 85 patients with nasal bone fracture to examine and analyze according to sex and age distribution, cause of injury and the time from the onset of injury to the beginning of treatment. RESULT: In this study, age, sex and severity of nasal bone fracture were found to be unrelated to the satisfactory result. The time from the onset of injury to the beginning of treatment is statistically related to the satisfactory result of nasal bone fracture (p<0.05).
CONCLUSION
Early intervention of nasal bone fracture is necessary to obtain satisfactory results.
