Amswer Quiz #4
The answer is #5 Mandibular fracture. This patient was struck on his left lower jaw and suffered a comminuted fracture. The open fracture caused the left half of his mandible to be pushed upward. Surgical wiring of the jaw puts it back in alignment but he'll be drinking from a straw for a good period of time.
