Correcting damaged bone and cartilage support.

Injuries to the nose, frequently lead to damage to the bone and cartilage support, and change the appearance of the nose, resulting in deviations, asymmetries and sometimes airway problems.

Deviations of the bones and cartilages of the nose, can be reset with relatively good success rate within the first week to 10 days after the injury.

The main worry is that injury to the nose can generate bleeding on both sides of the nasal septum, and the blood clots that accumulate around the cartilage deprive it from blood supply and the cartilage then dies. This situation referred to as septal hematoma, can be treated as an emergency, and when the haematoma is evacuated promptly after injury, the cartilage in the septum is protected.

Loss of the cartilage support from the septum under the bridge of the nose, creates the saddle nose deformity or boxer nose deformity.

Deviations of the bones and cartilages of the nose, can be reset with relatively good success rate within the first week to 10 days after the injury.

It is important to understand that following a more significant injury to the nose, it takes six months or longer before more extensive corrective surgery can be undertaken safely. This is primarily to allow the tissues to settle, become softer and less vascular.

When evaluating the nose after an injury, considerations of shape and airway are both very important, and sometimes a septo rhinoplasty is necessary, in order to achieve improvements in all areas.

In order to restore a straighter contour of the nose, it is often necessary to re-fracture the bones and re-align the cartilages.

A detailed plan changes is necessary, and computer simulation can bring invaluable assistance. With more complex corrections, the open tip approach provides the benefits of improved exposure and ability to stabilise the structures inside the nose which represents the supporting framework of cartilage and bone.
