A lot of patients who come for consulting an ENT Specialist are those who are suffering from recurrent cough and cold. Some of these patients also complain of pain in the ear. These patients are suffering from a bend in the Nasal bone and the condition is called `Deviated Nasal Septum'. This deviation of the nasal bone blocks the airways due to which the sinuses do not get proper air resulting in clogging of the sinuses.
Recurrent cough and cold is one of the most common health hazards in the younger generation specially the females. This is a big problem for those who are working as the productivity is severely affected if you have breathing problems and suffer from common cold. When there is a big deviation of the nasal septum then it requires surgery to correct it and this surgery is known as septoplasty. Once this deviation is corrected then it does not recur again after the patient attains the age of 18 years.
The main reason for getting the surgery for correction of deviated nose bone is obstructed airway. However reasons could be others as well:
Blockage of airway
Difficulty in breating through nose
Feeling of breathlessness in night while sleeping
Post nasal drip into throat
Recurrent cough and cold
Septoplasty is performed to straighten the shape of the septum (cartilage) and bones. The septum (cartilage) is between the two nostrils. The purpose is to correct the deformities and defects of the cartilage (septum). The septoplasty surgery normally takes 30 to 45 minutes and patient is required to stay for just 1 day in the hospital and the next day patient is discharged.
