Nose Injury 

Nose injuries are common and usually cause bleeding (epistaxis). There may also be blockage due to the collection of blood (haematoma) underneath the lining mucosa. The bones of the nose may be broken (fractured) and displaced resulting in a crooked nose. Squashing the front softer part of the nose may cause twisting of the internal central partition (septum) and blockage.

Diagnostics

Nasal Rigid / Flexible Endoscopy for a detailed assessment of the inside of the nose.

Plain X-rays may confirm an underlying fracture of the nasal bones.

Photography to record the nasal appearance before and after surgery or for medico-legal purposes.
