Endoscopic limited septoplasty in combination with sinonasal surgery

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The systematic use of fiberoptic techniques in the sinonasal region has made it possible to assess the nasal septum with more precision. The presence of limited septal deviation or isolated septal spurs can cause airway obstruction in the sinuses or impede the execution of endoscopic sinonasal procedures for a disorder not related to the morphology of the nasal septum. This study assesses the indications, surgical technique, and results in 170 patients who underwent endoscopic limited septoplasty performed concomitantly with endoscopic sinonasal surgery.
