Background and Aim: Nasal fracture is the most common facial fracture in which, incorrect diagnosis and improper treatment leads to structural and functional deficiencies. In this study we evaluated the association between nasal fracture treatment outcome and its causes in patients presenting at Farabi hospital (ENT emergency), Mashhad, Iran. Materials and Methods: In a cross-sectional study on 100 patients with nasal fracture, the necessary information was gathered through questionnaire, clinical examination and radiography imaging. After 5-7 days following the damage, the fractures were treated with closed reduction on local anesthesia using nasal cast for 7-10 days. Appropriate X-Ray imagings were taken from all patients. SPSS software (version 18) and statistical tests including chi-square and Fisher exact tests were used for statistical analysis. Results: The age peak incidence was 10-20 (63%) with male being dominant (5/1). Accident was the main etiology in the fractures. The common presentation was external deformity, tenderness, swelling and pain. In most cases (93%) the type of treatment was closed reduction. Nasal obstruction, nasal deviation and septal deformity resulted in dissatisfaction from the treatment in most of the cases (P = 0.01). Conclusion: Sport and fights-related injuries end into better treatment results. Nasal obstruction and nasal bone deformity are the most prevalent problems resulting in dissatisfaction from the treatment.
