Introduction Septum deviation in children may alter the early physiologic process of breathing, causing obligatory oral breathing and consequently changing craniofacial development and even intellect. Because of these consequences, septoplasty should be performed as early as possible. Materials and Methods The retrospective study reviewed the results of septoplasty in 40 children under 12 years old who had follow-up after surgery for a maximum period of 7 years. The research was submitted to… Expand
Septoplasty in children: Results of 250 cases
Effective septal correction by septoplasty in children not only relieves nasal blockage but also controls the associated symptoms. Expand
The deviation of nasal septum is a common deformity observed in children, with an increasing tendency in older age groups. It can be both, symptomatic and asymptomatic, depending on its size,Expand
Incidence of re-deviated nasal septum after septoplasty in adolescent and adult patients
Adolescent patients who underwent septoplasty had a significantly higher incidence of re-deviation of the nasal septum than adult patients, and they and their parents should be informed about the possibility of re,deviation and the need for revisional sePToplasty. Expand
Bilateral mucosal flap septal perforation repair in the adolescent.
The experience demonstrates septal perforation repair utilizing a bilateral mucosal flap technique can be successfully employed in the adolescent patient, and four patients required revision surgery to address persistent postoperative obstruction. Expand
Quality of life in children following nasal septal surgery: A review of its outcome
The existing literature was reviewed to evaluate the outcomes of pediatric nasal septal surgery and it was reported to lead to significant improvement in quality of life. Expand

The role of the ENT physician in childhood obstructive sleep apnea-hypopnea syndrome (OSAHS) is presented and Adenotonsillectomy is the reference treatment for childhood OSAHS with adenotonsillar hypertrophy. Expand
Эндоскопическая септопластика и перспективы ее применения у детей (обзор литературы)
It has been shown that endoscopic septoplasty, despite its relatively small history, has proved to be an effective and safe method of rhino­ surgery in adults and can be an optimal intervention for growing children’s noses, where radicalism and the destruction of supporting tissues are not tolerated.

Rinosseptoplastia em crianças
Rinosseptoplasty can be safely performed early in life when indicated and combined surgical procedures should be realized at the same time. Expand
Corrective rhinoplasty before puberty: a long-term follow-up.
The evidence from this series shows no contraindication for nasal correction in children when the psychological problems originated by a severe deformity at that difficult age can be prevented or alleviated. Expand
Rhinosurgery in children: developmental and surgical aspects of the growing nose
A list of guidelines to be considered before starting to perform surgery on the growing midface in children is compiled, based on their observations in animals and a few clinical studies, mostly with small numbers of patients but with a long follow-up. Expand
Management of naso-septal deformity in childhood: long-term results.
The series results demonstrated that the best results were obtained when all evident alterations of nasal septum and pyramid at a single stage, suggesting that immediate correction of septal alone with delayed management of nasal pyramid deformity leads to a poorer outcome. Expand

Evidence exists to support that pediatric septoplasty can be performed without affecting most aspects of nasal and facial growth, and despite the majority advocating the timing of septal surgery to be 6 years and older, more clinical studies are required that may provide further evidence for correction of sePTal deviations in younger children. Expand
Rhinosurgery in children: basic concepts.
The essential problem in pediatric rhinosurgery is not the age-specific anatomy but the poor wound-healing capacity: fractured or transected septum cartilage will not heal, and disconnected ends tend to overlap, resulting in increasing or recurrent deviations. Expand
Craniofacial growth in children with nasal septum deviation: a cephalometric comparative study.
Children with obligate mouth-breathing due to nasal septum deviations show facial and dental anomalies in comparison to nose-b Breathing controls, and possible physiologic explanations are reported. Expand
Effects of functional septoplasty on the facial growth of ferrets.
Functional septoplasty has no effect on the facial growth of ferrets, and facial analysis conducted showed no statistically significant differences either within or between the 3 groups. Expand
Pediatric septoplasty.
The importance of obtaining the correct anatomic location of a nasal obstruction in the pediatric patient, the relative and absolute indications for septoplasty, and surgical techniques are discussed. Expand
