Manipulation of fractured nose using mallet and champagne cork.

19:52 EDT 24th April 2014 | BioPortfolio

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.
