Knowledge, awareness and practice on management of lefort III fractures among dental students- a survey

Author: PREETHA PARTHASARATHY, DHANRAJ GANAPATHY
Abstract: Le Fort III fractures, also called cranial-facial separation, the fracture line in this injury passes from the nasofrontal area across the medial, posterior, and lateral orbital walls, the zygomatic arch, and through the upper portion of pterygoid plates. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the knowledge, awareness and practice of Le Fort III fractures and its management protocol among dental undergraduates.A cross sectional study was conducted among 150 dental students. The questionnaire consisted of 10 questions and were equally distributed among the students. The data collected was entered in an Excel sheet and subjected to statistical analysis using SPSS version 23. From the results it was found that 32.67% of the interns have responded yes on awareness of the universally used classification to be Lefort’s Classification. 29.33% of the interns have awareness of CSF rhinorrhea to be manifestation of Lefort III fractures. Awareness on basic principles in management of Lefort III fracture showed that 27.33% of the interns are aware of it, for all of which the P value was found to be statistically significant (p<0.05). Within the limits of the study, it is observed that knowledge and awareness of management of Lefort III fractures were high in Interns followed by final years. This can be due to the clinical expertise that the interns have acquired through clinical experience and clinical practice.
