Management of Nasoorbitoethmoidal Fracture: An Institutional Experience.

Abstract

The nasoorbitoethmoidal fractures remain the most complex of all facial fractures to diagnose and treat mainly because of the intricate anatomy and difficulty in fracture fixation. The number of such fractures are increasing with the more incidence of high-speed, high-force accidents. The nasoorbitoethmoidal fractures rarely occur as an isolated event. Associated injuries often include central nervous system injuries, cribriform plate fracture, cerebrospinal fluid rhinorrhea, and fractures of the frontal bone, orbital floor, and middle third of the face as well as injury to the lacrimal system. The appropriate management of these injuries require an understanding of the anatomic features of the region, the degree of severity of damage. The purpose of this article is to provide a general overview of the topic, with a more specific focus on the pearls of managing these fractures. Twenty-four patients who suffered The nasoorbitoethmoidal fractures with/without associated multiple midfacial injuries were included in the study. Postoperatively, results show stable symmetrical fixation of the canthus in three dimensions with good apposition of the eyelids against the ocular globe along with acceptable nasofrontal angle and nasal prominence. Prompt and proper management of these injuries can achieve both adequate functional and aesthetic outcomes.
