Nasal Septoplasty & Submucosal Resection of the Inferior Turbinates
Internal nasal deformity is a very common source of nasal and sinus symptoms. The most common abnormalities of the inside of the nose include a deviation of the nasal septum and enlargement of the turbinates. The most common symptoms with these deformities include chronic nasal congestion, nasal obstruction, chronic facial pain, and generalized allergy symptoms including runny nose and postnasal drainage. Under some circumstances, septum and/or turbinate issues may result in infection related to the paranasal sinuses, however, this is less common.
