European Journal of Molecular & Clinical Medicine,
2018, Volume 5, Issue 1, Pages 273-276
Background:Nasal septal deviations are very commonly found in regular nasal
examinations. The present study was conducted to assess cases of nasal septal deviations.
Materials & Methods: 54 patients of deviated nasal septum of both genders underwent
septoplasty. Outcome was recorded.
Results: Out of 54 patients, males were 26 and females were 28. The septal deviation was
causal in 28, midseptum in 16 and posterior septum in 10 cases. The difference was
significant (P< 0.05). The mean NOSE value pre- operatively was 56.2 and postoperatively
was 23.8. The difference was significant (P< 0.05).
Conclusion: There was significant improvement in NOSE score following septoplasty.
