The nose is divided into two parts by a wall called the septum, which consists of cartilage and bone tissues. Nasal septal deviation may occur due to various reasons (structural, impact, accident, etc.). This makes it difficult to breathe through the nose and causes nasal congestion. Septal deviation is corrected by septoplasty.
Surgery to remove cartilage and bone protrusions that cause septal deviation is called septoplasty. During septoplasty, excess cartilage and bone fragments are removed and the deviation of the septum is corrected.
