Alert for Charles Ollivon

“Overall, a malar fracture consolidates during the first three weeks. Is a return to the field possible? Yes I think so, even if it really needs to be discussed with the player. Is there any risk in the game? If he takes a significant impact, there is a greater risk of displacement of the zygomatic bone, of the malar. Could it be serious? It’s like everything, his first fracture without surgery could have been serious, and a priori it was not. Since the question is whether he can play again, it’s all a matter of circumstances. I think he can play again. There is an increase in a risk factor, but with suitable equipment, it can do it”told Eric Solyom, specialist in maxillofacial surgery Paris et Toulouse, during an interview given to RMC Sport.
