Treatment

A simple, minimally or nondisplaced nasal fracture does not require specific treatment other than analgesia, nasal decongestants, and protection from further injury. If significant epistaxis occurs, nasal packing can be placed as previously discussed, but is usually unnecessary. All patients with suspected nasal bone fractures should be given follow-up for reevaluation with either a plastic surgeon, otolaryngologist, or an oral and maxillofacial surgeon, once the swelling has subsided, usually in 2 to 5 days. Grossly displaced nasal fractures should receive consultation in the ED for correction.
