Course Summary

Physical trauma to the face can range from a simple bruise to large and painful lacerations, fractures, and trauma to the eyes, teeth, and nerves. Facial injuries have the potential to disfigure and cause significant loss of function, such as the sense of sight or smell, or even the ability to speak. Proper diagnosis and rapid treatment can minimize and prevent these effects. Basic facial anatomy and the etiology, clinical manifestations, assessment and acute management of facial trauma involving soft tissue injuries and fractures are reviewed.
