Comparative assessment of conventional and endoscopy assisted nasal septal correction surgery performed in NMCH, Patna


Dr. Indrajeet Kumar

The nasal septum is the bone and cartilage in the nose that separates the nasal cavity into the two nostrils. Normally, the septum lies centrally, and thus the nasal passages are symmetrical. A deviated septum is an abnormal condition in which the top of the cartilaginous ridge leans to the left or the right, causing obstruction of the affected nasal passage. A deviated septum can go undetected for years and thus be without any need for correction. The condition can result in poor drainage of the sinuses and subsequent sinusitis, difficulty in breathing, headache, epistaxis, sleeping disorders such as snoring or sleep apnea. [14] Symptomatic deviated nasal symptom demands surgical correction. Hence based on above findings the present study was planned for Comparative Assessment of Conventional and Endoscopy Assisted Nasal Septal Correction Surgery Performed in NMCH, Patna. The present study was planned in Department of ENT, Nalanda Medical College and Hospital, Patna, Bihar, India. In the present study total 50 patients were enrolled undergoing the conventional or Endoscope assisted septal correction procedure. Patients were divided based on the undergoing procedures in two different groups. The 25 cases in Group I underwent the septal correction using nasal endoscope and remaining 25 cases of Group II underwent conventional septal correction. Patients with symptomatic nasal obstruction due to septal deviation in the age group of 18 to 60 years were selected after obtaining consent for conventional or Endoscope assisted septal correction procedure. The data generated from the present study concludes that Endoscopy assisted nasal septal correction surgery is overweighed on conventional surgery as this technique is capable of approaching the targeted site more preciously and corrective surgery would be performed in less time with more accuracy even though the establishment expenditure is costlier than conventional nasal septal corrective surgery. Earlier relief from postoperative symptoms is significantly more in endoscopy assisted nasal septal correction surgery.
