What Is The Impact If The Forehead Fractures And A Broken Nose 7 Days Ago But Has Not Yet Been Operated On?
Assallamuallaikum, I want to ask my brother to have an accident and have been scanned as a result, his forehead is fractured and his nose is broken.
Hello Aditya, thank you for using the HealthReplies.com service.
Facial bones such as forehead and nose bones are often found, especially during sports injuries, traffic accidents, or fighting. Treatment depends on the degree of fracture and depends on complications that can arise in the surrounding organs if cracks or fractures are left without treatment.
Usually on facial fractures that are not handled properly, the most frequent complication is abnormal bone grafting (deformity) that can cause cosmetic defects, sinus disorders around the forehead bones, tear sac injuries, nasal pain, saddle nose, respiratory disorders, persistent epistaxis, and airway obstruction.
The action is usually done 1-2 hours after the trauma with the aim to reduce swelling first. It can also be done no later than 14 days after the trauma, after that the action may be difficult to do, because a bone connective tissue has formed (callus).
I suggest consulting your brother by bringing the results of a CT scan of the head to a plastic surgeon so that a complete re-examination, such as question and answer, physical examination of the head, face, hidaung, and eyes, so that you and your doctor can discuss the best treatment for your brother.
As for the things you can do right now are:
Get adequate rest at home Consuming nutritious food Go immediately to the nearest health facility if found: bleeding from the nose, clear fluid coming out of the nose, irritating disorders, vomiting, severe headaches, and decreased awareness Thus the information I can give, hopefully can help you .
