Manipulation of fractured nose using mallet and champagne cork.
Summary of "Manipulation of fractured nose using mallet and champagne cork."
We describe an alternative method of manipulating fractured nasal bones using a surgical mallet and a champagne cork. This method enables accurate fracture reduction with minimal skin trauma, by affording the surgeon a high level of control. This method may be applied successfully to late-presenting fractures.
