Abstract
Introduction: The nose is the most protruding central part of the face, and nasal bone fractures are the most common of facial bone fractures, leading up to 39%. Despite its high frequency, not many studies handled the etiology of nasal bone fractures, leading to the necessity of a recent demographic study. Materials and Methods: A total of 1111 patients diagnosed with nasal bone fracture from 2013 to 2018 at our institute were evaluated. A retrospective review of the various demographic and etiologic characteristics was done. Results: Numerous factors associated with nasal bone fractures were analyzed. Male patients were 3.3 times greater than the number of female patients, and twenties were the most common age range. Violence was the overall most common cause of injury, while slip down was the most common cause for females. Upon monthly distribution, the highest incidence of nasal bone fractures occurred in September, followed by March and December. The authors further divided the patients by time zone of the fractures, and male patients were most commonly injured from midnight to 3 AM, while female patients were 6 PM to 9 PM. Conclusion: Our findings represent a recent urban data of various etiologic factors of nasal bone fracture. The concept of school violence has been widely used since 1990s, and our data reflects that violence of the youth is a serious issue of the society. The mechanism of injury differed among sexes and age groups, and such discrepancies will aid physicians to better understand facial bone fracture patients and educate them in the future.
