After a brief description of the etiopathogenetic and clinicodiagnostic aspects of choanal atresias, details are given of surgical correction of this malformation and the best time to perform the operation. In particular it is emphasised that bilateral atresias should be operated endonasally and as soon as possible. The excellent results obtained in the 30 cases described confirm the usefulness of the surgical technique employed.
