Abstract

Introduction

Nasal obstruction due to deviated nasal septum is a common problem encountered by otolaryngologists. A variety of surgical procedures have been tried in the treatment of the same.

Objective

This study was conducted to evaluate the outcomes and complications of endoscopic and conventional septoplasty.

Materials and methods

This is a prospective, randomized study done in Government Medical College, Latur in which 52 patients with symptomatic deviated nasal septum were included in the study. Eighteen of them underwent conventional septoplasty and the rest had endoscopic septoplasty.

Results

The difference in the functional outcome of both the surgeries was insignificant. Endoscopic septoplasty had better outcome with respect to complications and proved as an easier method to correct posterior deviations and isolated spurs.

Conclusion

Endoscopic septoplasty allows accurate, conservative repair of obstructive nasal septum deviations, with fewer complications and better functional results compared to conventional septoplasty.
