Closed Nasal Reduction (Resetting Broken Nose)
Was this photo helpful?
This gentleman is an extreme kayaker who went off of Oregon's 50-foot Celestial Falls. Due to an incorrect angle of entry, the patient's face slammed into the boat and created this traumatic nasal fracture and deviation. We took him to the operating room 5 days later and performed a closed nasal reduction and septoplasty. His nose became much straighter and he could breath well out of it as well.
