When surgical treatment of deviated nasal septum (septoplasty) is required


The need for surgical treatment of a deviated nasal septum (septoplasty) arises not only in cases of snoring and prolonged runny nose (rhinitis), but also due to diseases of the heart and blood vessels caused by oxygen deprivation due to breathing disorders, among other factors.

Septoplasty is typically performed using specialized tools and technologies that enable the surgeon to accurately assess the extent of pathology and individual anatomical characteristics. Microscopic and endoscopic surgical techniques allow surgeons to operate with minimal damage to surrounding tissues.

Consultation and examination of a surgeon concerning facial problems

You should consult a surgeon about septoplasty as soon as possible if you experience the following symptoms:

  • Difficulty in breathing through the nose: If you find it hard to breathe through one or both nostrils, especially during physical activity or sleep, it could indicate a deviated septum.
  • Frequent sinus infections: A deviated septum can obstruct normal sinus drainage and lead to recurrent sinus infections.
  • Chronic runny nose (rhinitis): If you have a consistently stuffy nose that doesn’t improve with standard medications, it might be due to a deviated septum.
  • Nosebleeds: Frequent nosebleeds could be linked to a deviated septum.
  • Facial pain: Discomfort in the facial area might be related to the structural changes caused by a deviated septum.
  • Snoring during sleep: Nasal septum deviation could be a contributing factor to snoring.

    Main methods of treatment.

    Surgeons at the Valikhnovski Surgery Institute in Kyiv perform various surgical procedures: Get acquainted
    img img img img

    Closed Septoplasty Technique: This is the most common type of surgery, in which the surgeon makes incisions inside the nose to access the nasal septum.

    Open Septoplasty Technique: A less common approach, where the surgeon makes an incision on the outside of the nose to access the nasal septum.

    Classic Septoplasty: The surgeon performs the operation using conventional mechanical tools.

    Endoscopic Septoplasty: In this method, the doctor uses special optical equipment (endoscope) to perform the operation with less damage to surface tissues.

    Laser Septoplasty: The surgeon utilizes laser radiation to work on the tissues.

    The choice of septoplasty technique depends on the complexity of the situation. Typically, closed septoplasty is used for mild cases, while open septoplasty is chosen for more complex ones.

    If taking any medications, inform the doctor and follow their recommendations (dosage adjustments, restrictions, etc.).

    Maintain a gentle diet and proper hydration a few days prior to the surgery. If constipated, consider laxatives or enemas. Avoid alcohol to ensure predictable anesthesia responses.

    Refrain from eating for 6–12 hours before the operation, and from drinking for 2–4 hours. Also, avoid chewing gum and smoking to prevent stomach contents from entering the respiratory tract during anesthesia.

    On the day of the operation, shower and use an enema to ensure no involuntary bowel movements due to sphincter relaxation.

    Immediately before the operation :

    - Remove removable objects like piercing jewelry and dentures from the oral cavity and face.
    - Take off items like contact lenses, hearing aids, and jewelry to avoid potential harm.
    - Remove cosmetic products (makeup, nail polish, artificial nails) from the body for better visual assessment.
    - Empty your bladder and possibly the intestines to avoid involuntary incidents during anesthesia.
    - Put on the special clothes provided by the clinic.

    Additional measures may be taken based on individual considerations and the specifics of the surgical procedure.

    How a surgical operations on the nasal septum (septoplasties) take place


    The main stages:

    img img
    • 1
      The patient is transported either

      to the operating room on a gurney or escorted on foot. In the airlock room, a medical cap and shoe covers are worn (to prevent microorganisms from entering the air of the operating room).

    • 2
      Operations are conducted by

      a surgical team with specific composition, taking into account the details of each procedure.

    • 3
      The patient is positioned on the operating table

      (position may vary based on the procedure's specifics) and secured with specialized straps.

    • 4
      The anesthetist's nurse performs a vein puncture

      on the hand, inserts a catheter to administer necessary medications, attaches electrodes to monitor heart's electrical activity, places a tonometer cuff on the shoulder, and a sensor to measure blood oxygen levels. These measures ensure continuous monitoring of the patient's condition during anesthesia and surgery.

    • 5
      The subsequent course of the operation

      depends on the specific objectives, the targeted body area, and aligns with the chosen surgical tactics and technique.



    Postoperative period and rehabilitation

    After surgery, the patient awakens in the postoperative observation ward. If needed, oxygen can be administered through a slender tube to ensure an adequate oxygen supply to the body. The nurse will diligently monitor the patient’s condition and, if required, administer medications as agreed upon with the doctor.

    Before the patient is discharged, the doctor will assess the surgical sites, establish a plan for ongoing rehabilitation, and provide additional guidance.

      When Should You Consider a Consultation with a Surgeon for Septoplasty?

      Septoplasty is a surgical procedure designed to correct a deviated nasal septum. You should contemplate consulting a surgeon for a septoplasty if you experience the following symptoms:

      • Prolonged nasal congestion, particularly when one nostril is more obstructed than the other.
      • Recurring sinusitis (sinus inflammation).
      • Episodic nosebleeds.
      • Chronic nighttime coughing or snoring.
      • Facial pain or headaches.
      • Constant sensation of nasal congestion, unaffected by the use of cold remedies, and more.

      If you present one or more of these symptoms, it’s advisable to discuss them with your trusted healthcare professional. They will evaluate your condition and assist you in determining whether septoplasty is the most suitable option for you.

      How Is Septoplasty Performed?

      Septoplasty is conducted under general anesthesia. During the procedure, the surgeon creates incisions within the nasal passages to access the nasal septum. The deviated septum is then corrected by the surgeon, and the incisions are subsequently closed.

      Postoperative Care after Septoplasty

      Following septoplasty, swelling and bruising around the nose area are common. You might receive a prescription for pain relief. Engaging in excessive physical activity should be avoided for several weeks post-surgery.

      Is There a Warranty for Septoplasty Surgery?

      The septoplasty warranty encompasses implants, medical consumables, and equipment. Provision of surgical treatment services is guaranteed in alignment with modern medical advancements, the clinic’s specialists’ high level of qualification, and the clinic’s technical resources. However, the ultimate clinical outcome is influenced by numerous factors, not solely limited to the doctor and the clinic, including individual body characteristics, lifestyle, environmental circumstances, and stress-related factors.

      Preparation and Potential Complications of Septoplasty Surgery

      Preparation for septoplasty surgery involves a preliminary examination and consultation with the surgeon. This encompasses comprehensive assessments involving photo and video analyses of appearance and anthropometry. Consultations with relevant specialists may also be included. The general principles of surgical preparation align with those generally followed in surgery.
      Potential complications following septoplasty include general surgical issues (bleeding, thrombosis, infections, inflammation) as well as those specific to this field (postoperative defects, nonunion of bone, epileptic syndrome). Rigorous preparation for the surgery, a skilled and experienced medical team, advanced technology, and coordinated teamwork within the clinic collectively minimize the risk of complications.

      Contraindications for Septoplasty Surgery

      Conditions that significantly elevate the risks of surgical treatment, such as infectious, mental, gastrointestinal diseases, etc., are considered contraindications to septoplasty surgery.
