A DNS with symptoms

C Sluder's neuralgia
D Septal spar

Ans. A DNS with symptoms

Septoplasty is a conservative approach to surgery. Here most of the septal framework is retained.

A mucoperichondral/periosteal flap is raised generally on one side. Only the most deviated parts are removed. Rest of the septal framework is corrected and repositioned. This operation has replaced submucosal resection.

Indications of Septoplasty

Symptomatic deviated septum.

As a part of septorhinoplasty for cosmetic reasons.

As an approach to hypophysectomy.

Recurrent epistaxis due to septal spur

Most common indication for septoplasty - DNS with symptom -

Note

Septal spur per se is not an indication for septoplasty, only when it leads to recurrent epistaxis then it should be operated.

"Neither septal deviation nor septal deformities are by themselves an indication for a septoplasty - Scotts Brown lth/ed Vol 2 p 1580
