Tripod suspension and stabilisation: an innovative splintage technique for closed reduction of comminuted and compound fractures of the nasal bones

Conclusions Tripod suspension and stabilisation is an effective and rational technique for splintage following closed reduction of comminuted/compound fractures of nasal bones. It is convenient for patients as they can breathe through their noses and do not restrict any activity while the splints are on. It is very stable and versatile and reduces hospitalisation as no packs are required and has shown excellent long-term functional and aesthetic results thereby reducing the need for open procedures. Level of Evidence: Level IV, therapeutic study. (Source: European Journal of Plastic Surgery)
