Abstract

Endoscopic septoplasty is a rapidly evolving substitute to the customary “headlight” septoplasty. The primary advantage of the technique is the ability to reduce morbidity and postoperative swelling in isolated septal deviations by limiting the dissection to the area of the deviation. Other advantages include improved visualization, particularly in posterior septal deformities; improved surgical transition between septoplasty and sinus surgery and its use as an effective teaching tool. We present our experience with endoscopic septoplasty in a series of 19 patients.
