Septum is the nasal wall made of bones and cartilages that separates the nasal passages and controls the airflow. This septum may at times bend due to congenital factors or any injury or damage. In children, the septum can normally bend during puberty. Deviated septum occurs when bone and cartilage is not straight leading to breathing difficulties. Thus, the surgical method of straightening the septum is known as Septoplasty.
HOW IS SEPTOPLASTY DIAGNOSED?
Diagnosis for this problem is done by an ENT who would check for your breathing issues and do an X-ray and scan for these deformities.
HOW IS SEPTOPLASTY TREATED?
Septoplasty is usually performed as an outpatient procedure unless major complications arise.
DID YOU KNOW?
As with any major surgery, septoplasty carries risks, such as bleeding, infection and an adverse reaction to the anesthetic. There can be a decreased sense of smell or collection of blood in the nasal septum. Additional surgery or treatment may be required to deal with these complications.
