Septal deviation is associated with nasal obstruction, snoring, and deviated nose.
Correction of septal deviation has a wide sepctrum from simple excision of deviated portion to total septal reconstruction or replacement.
High revision rate tells there are pitfalls to avoid.
I (Dr. Jin Hong-Ryul) analyzed 100 cases of revision septoplasty patients and published it in the journal.
It shows the most common mistakes they make during the septoplasty is timid separation of bone and cartilage.
It also shows caudal septal deviation is difficult to correct and septal batten graft is the solution.
I hope that nose surgeons can get a little help from my article.
