    Also, according to Zeniya's account, both PJB and Nakanishi coach are still with Momota; Nakanishi appparently spent the night in Momota's hospital ward.

    the maxillary sinus is in the head.

    no matter, according to @kurako , seems no fractures.

    subtle brain injury may be concern.

    Like I said, remember my qualifier 'sort of'. And my remark was meant for Momota's case, not the whole incident where there was one fatality. Shouldn't you address your comment to the other two who expressed similar remarks, why only me?

    Anyway, I don't wish to repeat myself, read my relevant posts carefully, not selectively. This is a petty quarrel, there are more serious things to worry about, enough of it.

    Let's not forget the other three survivors who are in the same boat as Momota, they deserve the same treatment, medical and everything (little was reported about the Hawk-Eye operator). Seeing the wreckage to the van where the driver in front was crushed, it's really a huge relief that all four passengers at the back survived with presumably minor injuries as of now, any long-term side effects in the future is another matter, unknown and unpredictable.

    We can only wait and see while hoping for the best.

    Yeah, 1 person is allowed to accompany the patient overnight, same gender.
    We can bring our own Easy chair, pillows & sleep beside the patient's bed.
    Purpose is to help the patient when they need sthing or need to go bathroom.

    It just means whatever you have won in the past means nothingg if you cant play badminton anymore...Not at 25... There s so much eeriness in that question.

    I would say badminton needs Momota. He is someone that everyone wants to beat ...that protagonist..

    I like the idea that badminton needs Momota.

    This idea i not so like although I can understand the viewpoint. Of course I hope that Momota can continue to play. But if ever he cannot continue to play, I will still be happy that some like Momota existed and I will never get tired of watching all his past matches. All the matches he won will always mean something to me. I will always be on a lookout for any new players to see if any one can play as well as Momota played or achieve what he has achieved in such a short time.

    Maxillary sinus is the face, not the head, situated right beside the nose on both side. Sinuses are air spaces situated in the bones of face, so that layer of the sinuses are lined by epithelial loaded with mucus, whose oversecretion leads to filling up of those sinuses, and overflowing through the nose, which is what happens when one catches cold.

    So fracture of maxillary sinus cannot even lead to any haemorrhages in brain, so brain injury is out of the picture.

    For brain damage you need atleast a blunt trauma to skull or sphenoid sinus fracture

    If no brain issue, then my worry are tiny clot in the head, body not spotted or breathing issue. In a game like badminton, to be able to breathe properly is very important.

    The face is part of the head.

    The maxillary sinus is part of the head. Refer to chapter 11 of the following link.

    @visor

    Did Momota suffer a non-traumatic fracture to his maxillary sinus area?

    Is @visor Momota's doctor?

    Unless he is, I don't think anyone here will have an answer to this question.

    The Malaysia side has announced to the Malaysian media that there is a fine line fracture to Momota's maxillary sinus area, whilst NBA has announced that in test results received from the Malaysian side, no fractures are mentioned.

    Momota will undergo another MRI after he arrives in Japan. We may have to wait until then to clear up the issue.

    The NBA has uploaded the following official documents (Japanese) onto its website.

    1. Cancellations, and reasons thereof, to participation in the Indonesia Masters. This concerns Momota, Kamura, and Watanabe Yuta.

    Exactly. How can a fit and well person sustain a fracture (even fine line) without trauma?

    All that stuff about the maxillary sinus and cilia and colds is just irrelevant to the issue at hand. Momota doesn't have a cold.

    With the knocks and lacerations he sustained to his face, I would be surprised if there wasn't any trauma, ...even in the absence of a fracture. NBA's Zeniya compared the condition/injuries of Momota's face to those of a boxer after a match.

    It really makes me shudder to think what would have happened had the victims of the accident not worn a seatbelt.

    Kento can bounce back

    PUTRAJAYA: World No. 1 Kento Momota (pic) has been through a traumatic event, and this may be the fuel to come back better than ever.

    That’s the opinion of independent sports psychologist Muhammad Deen, who believes the Japanese men’s singles ace is an individual whose strength becomes apparent through adversity.

    Muhammad thinks Momota may develop a Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) following the incident but he will be able to overcome it thanks to the undivided support services he’s receiving from the team.
    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    “Some individuals can be badly affected when such a traumatic event happens to them. This can lead to PTSD,” said the Englishman, who had served the National Sports Institute (NSI) from 2015 to 2018.

    “Some may develop fear of travelling in cars, having flashbacks or having trouble with sleeping. It all depends on the individual.

    “As for Momota, it was a good thing that Park Joo-bong (Japan head coach) and other team officials were there for him at the hospital. Their presence makes a whole world of difference.

    “His other two compatriots were injured too. They will overcome this together,” he added.

    Despite all that has happened, Muhammad pointed out that traumatic events do present an opportunity for post-traumatic growth.

    “He will be grateful and cherish his life even more after surviving the accident unscathed,” he said.

    “He could be even more fired up to win the Olympics now.

    “Some of the world’s top athletes like tennis stars Serena Williams and Andy Murray have faced adversities and gone on to achieve so much.

    “It’s not the first time Momota faced a major setback in his career.”

    If they didn't wear seatbelt, I strongly believe that the number of death has not stopped at 1. Especially Momota, sitting right behind the driver.
