An Algorithm for the Initial Management of Nasal Trauma.

Nasal fractures are the most common of all facial skeletal injuries. Untreated, these fractures frequently lead to functional and aesthetic problems. Careful history and physical assessment are critical to determine the extent of injury and to determine proper management. Critical aspects of assessment are discussed, as is the role of imaging in management. The unique aspects of pediatric nasal fractures and their management are reviewed. Fractures are classified based on the degree of injury and the involvement of the septum. A simple treatment algorithm is provided to help guide the selection of optimal treatment techniques. A review of instrumentation and treatment techniques is provided. The goal of treatment is to restore the nose to its preinjury shape and function and to minimize the need for secondary septorhinoplasty.
