Background: Although there are many techniques for septoplasty to cure nasal obstruction. Nasal endoscope is
very useful tool to visualise posterior part of septum and perform the surgery more precisely, with less complication
as compare to conventional method.
Method: Out of 90 (Ninety) patients having DNS associated with epistaxis,chronic rhino sinusitis, snoring were
studied 45 were treated with Endoscopic septoplastyand 45 with conventional septoplasty pros and cons of both
tools and techniques were noted.
Results: Post-surgical complications were least in Endoscopic surgery as compare to conventional septoplasty –
0% bleeding in Endoscopy and 2 (4.44%) in conventional, 7 (15.5%) DNS recurrence in conventional and 3 (6.66%)
in endoscopic, 3 (6.6%) Epistaxis and crusting in conventional and 1 (2.2%) in Endoscopy and 0% crusting in
Conclusion: It is concluded that Endoscopic septoplasty is quite safer due to better illumination which enables to
identify the pathology of septum precisely and realignment of the cartilages for better results
