Broken Nose Overview
A broken nose is any crack or fracture in the bony portion of the nose.
This is usually a result of external trauma. Blows to the face during altercations, vehicle accidents, falls, and sports injury are the most common reasons for a fractured nose.
Nasal fractures are often cited as the most common type of facial fracture, accounting for approximately half of all facial fractures in several studies.
