Emergency Treatment of Multiple Fractures of Maxillofacial Bone: Case Report
Abstract: Multiple fractures of maxillofacial bone due to trauma require immediate treatment because it may cause fatal airway bleeding and obstruction by foreign objects or dental and bone fragments. The purpose of this case report is to describe emergency treatment in multiple fractures of maxillofacial bone cases due to trauma. Case report: Three patients had physical trauma in maxillofacial area with multiple fractures affecting nasal bone, maxillary bone, zygomatic bone, mandible bone, and alveolar bone associated with soft tissue injury. Emergency treatment includes treatment of bleeding, debridement, as well as fixation and transient immobilization of fracture fragments using interdental wiring with Erich arch bar. Conclusion: Emergency treatment in these three cases may prevent airway bleeding and obstruction because the fracture fragments were maintained to prevent movement or shifting and to prevent worsening of maxillofacial fractures condition.
