Fracture of the Cribriform Plate

Cribiform Plate Fracture


Presentation

  • A comprehensive textbook of adult emergency medicine for trainee doctors - covers all the problems likely to present to a trainee in the emergency department.[books.google.com]
  • Complieated fractures of the vault and fractures of the base of the skull are at present the most important source of intraeranial infection, and are likely to increase in importance due to ever increasing frequeney of motor accidents.[books.google.com]
  • See clinical problems as they present in practice with 3,200 images - many new to this edition. Consult the complete contents of this encyclopedic reference online, with video clips of key index cases![books.google.com]
  • Eighty percent of cases will present in the first 48 hours after injury, and most (up to 95%) will present with CSF rhinorrhea in the first 3 months after trauma.[radiologykey.com]
  • Natal Teeth Predeciduous teeth present at birth. They may be well formed and normal or may represent hornified epithelial structures without roots.[bioportfolio.com]
Inflammation
  • Inflammation may play a role, but there likely are other factors. For example, it is possible that swelling of the tissue containing the olfactory receptors could stretch the receptor cells and damage their ability to function properly.[monell.org]
  • December 24, 2018: Journal of Glaucoma # 3 Matthias F Kriegel, Arnd Heiligenhaus, Carsten Heinz BACKGROUND/AIMS: To assess the impact of papillary leakage and active inflammation on optical coherence tomography (OCT)-based retinal nerve fibre layer thickness[readbyqxmd.com]
Sepsis
  • Significant updating of following topics - acute coronary syndrome management, trauma, sepsis management, imaging, arrhythmias. Expansion of administration section - especially patient safety. Changes to drug overdose sections in toxicology section.[books.google.com]
  • […] have not been possible intraoperatively with the orotracheal intubation technique.Nasal intubation was avoidid to prevent tube going into the cranium because of fracture of naso-ethmoid complex and further to prevent complications such as meningitis,sepsis[apicareonline.com]
Gangrene
  • Thoracic surgery has nearly eradieated a for merly fairly frequent source of abseess of the brain, namely infections of the lung, such as lung abscess, bronchiectasia and lung gangrene.[books.google.com]
Anosmia
  • As part of our anosmia project, we will develop educational material on anosmia and other smell disorders to distribute to physicians.[monell.org]
  • Is anosmia typical for sinus perforation? I have a burning sensation in the base of my left nostril and a feeling of excessive dryness.[nysinuscenter.com]
  • When undergoing the olfactory test, however, 82.5% showed anosmia, suggesting axon damage at the level of the lamina cribrosa.[nabis.org]
  • Frontal lobe tumors may compress the olfactory bulb and/or tracts and cause anosmia rarely.[en.wikiversity.org]
  • This injury results in anosmia, or the loss of smell. A reduction in the ability to taste is also a side effect because it is based so heavily on smell. This injury is not fatal."[answers.yahoo.com]
Hyposmia
  • Imaging did not show any lesions of brain olfactory structures in these patients, but 82.5% of them had anosmia and 12.5% had hyposmia.[nabis.org]
  • As the names suggests, post-traumatic olfactory loss describes anosmia or hyposmia which results from a head injury.[fifthsense.org.uk]
Rhinitis
  • Examples of nasal-sinus disease ( NSD ) include: Allergies (allergic rhinitis), which lead to inflammation of the nasal cavity Chronic sinus infections (chronic rhinosinusitis), which often are bacterial or fungal in nature Nasal polyps Although nasal-sinus[monell.org]
Blister
  • The skin turns red but does not blister or actually burn through. The burn site is painful. A sunburn is a good example of a superficial burn. • Partial-thickness (second-degree) burns involve the epidermis and some portion of the dermis.[books.google.com]
Nystagmus
  • Oculomotor), IV (Trochlear), VI(Abducens) [ edit ] Mnemonic LR6SO4 Lateral rectus muscle by CN VI, superior oblique by CN IV Position [ edit ] eyelid (penlight in front of patient), move in an H pattern eye position in primary gaze Eye Movement [ edit ] nystagmus[en.wikiversity.org]

Treatment

  • Key features include: Emphasis on a disease state management approach to patient assessment and treatment Promotion of a holistic, biopsychosocial model of patient assessment and care Review of current expert consensus on practice guidelines Exploration[books.google.com]
  • Also has boxes featuring controversial areas of treatment. Practical and clinically orientated. Major changes to resuscitation guidelines. Complete rewriting of ENT section.[books.google.com]
  • Therefore, a primary goal in the treatment of these fractures is the restoration of the occlusal relationship. Principles of treatment are similar to those in the treatment of mandible fractures.[implantandfacialsurgery.com]
  • They will often ask an ear nose and throat surgeon to check your nose seven to 10 days after the injury to see if the bones and cartilage need more treatment.[entuk.org]
  • (jawbone fracture) Nasal fracture Le Fort I fracture Le Fort II fracture Treatment of a Le Fort III fracture will vary depending on the severity of the fracture, whether the patient also suffered any sort of brain swelling or traumatic brain injury,[ebtrialattorneys.com]

Prognosis

  • Written by over 100 acknowledged leaders in the field, and containing hundreds of tables, graphs, and photographic images, the text deals with issues of neuroimaging and neurodiagnostic testing, prognosis and outcome, acute care, rehabilitative care,[books.google.com]
  • Whilst the prognosis for post-traumatic patients is admittedly poor, some people may experience some improvement.[fifthsense.org.uk]
  • Phelps CD (1982) Effect of myopia on prognosis in treated primary open-angle glaucoma. Am J Ophthalmol 93:622–628 CrossRef PubMed 4.[springermedizin.de]
  • Larger skull base defects ( 1.5 cm) or severely comminuted fractures, particularly if a meningoencephalocele is present, are associated with a worse prognosis for spontaneous resolution, and will require surgical repair.[radiologykey.com]

Prevention

  • However attention to details of the technique, careful blunt dissection and a good knowledge of anatomy can help prevent above mentioned complications.[apicareonline.com]
  • Antibiotics are given to prevent meningitis; the course lasts at least seven days, or if there is a CSF leak, until seven days after this has ceased.[gpnotebook.co.uk]
  • It is therefore extremely important to obtain precise realignment of the fractured bone to prevent long-term visual changes.[implantandfacialsurgery.com]
  • An injection to prevent tetanus is advisable if your vaccination is not up to date (every 10 years). Bony fractures of the nose account for nearly 50% of all facial fractures.[entuk.org]
