By ncbi rofl | March 21, 2011 7:00 pm

“We describe an alternative method of manipulating fractured nasal bones using a surgical mallet and a champagne cork. This method enables accurate fracture reduction with minimal skin trauma, by affording the surgeon a high level of control. This method may be applied successfully to late-presenting fractures.”
