Abstract

Decades have passed since septoplasty was first introduced for the management of the nasal airway. Various modifications of the technique have been made to deal with the pathology of the nasal septum. The authors have used the nasal endoscope successfully for the ultraconservative management of the deviated nasal septum and turbinoplasty [inferolateral partial resection of the turbinate/s]. The present study is an update series of the previously published preliminary series, and comprises of 480 cases of deviated nasal septum who underwent endoscope aided septo-turbinoplasty [EAS] to improve the nasal airway. The subjective assessment of the efficacy of this procedure was done by visual analogue scoring system and the objective assessment was done by endoscopy. This study demonstrates significant improvement in relieving nasal obstruction and the contact areas. The authors advocate a combined approach- an endoscopic approach for inaccessible posterior deviation and a conservative traditional technique for accessible anterior segment [caudal septum].
