Introduction: Nasal septal deviation is a common diagnosis made by an otorhinolaryngologist, and septoplasty or submucous resection is among the most common daycare procedures practiced in the clinic. Aims and Objectives: The aim of this study was to assess clinically if at all, there is any change in the symptoms of a person post an isolated septal surgery without dealing with the external contour and cosmetic appeal. Materials and Methods: One hundred patients with complaints of nasal…

Role of hydrodissection in septoplasty: a modern outlook
Hydrodissection in septoplasty for the elevation of the mucoperichondrium and mucoperiosteum is a useful step in surgery provided that it is performed using Normal Saline.
A comprehensive study on haematological and platelet related changes following septoplasty
The decrease in nasal obstruction symptom evaluation (NOSE) score after surgery is the confirmatory parameter proving that septoplasty not only improves the quality of life but also significantly corrects the altered blood and platelet related parameters in nasal septal deviation patients.


Examination versus subjective nasal obstruction in the evaluation of the nasal septal deviation.
Although most of the participants in the study had no severe nasal obstruction complaint, a significant association between prevalence of NSD and nasal injuries was found and an association between NSD presence and patient's VAS was found.
Objective and Subjective Evaluation of Operation Success in Patients with Nasal Septal Deviation Based on Septum Type
Patients with septal deviation types 2, 4, and 6 benefited most from sePTal surgery, and yielded higher levels of postoperative amelioration and patient satisfaction in terms of quality of life.
Estimation of Partitioning of Airflow in Septal Surgery: A Prospective Study with Reference to the NOSE Scale
It can be deduced from the present study that NAPM can be a cost-effective device for clinicians to objectively measure nasal airway obstruction and screen patients for septal surgery.
Impact of Corrective Rhinologic Surgery on Rhinogenic Headache
The importance of surgery in the treatment of rhinogenic headache has been shown and the reliability of the decongestion test for determining the indication for surgery is shown.
A UK survey of current ENT practice in the assessment of nasal patency.
British clinicians rely on clinical skills to evaluate nasal blockage and there is a desire for a simple, non-invasive device that objectively measures airflow for nasal breathing during physiological resting and correlates with subjective symptom scores.
Development of a severity classification system for subjective nasal obstruction.
The proposed classification system will improve patient care by providing a framework for the severity of their symptoms and helping them understand potential treatment effects and allow physicians to better understand the study patient population and the effect of treatment on each severity class.
Adaptation and validation of the Dutch version of the nasal obstruction symptom evaluation (NOSE) scale
The Dutch version of the NOSE (NL-NOSE) demonstrated satisfactory reliability and validity and is recommended as a validated instrument to measure subjective severity of nasal obstruction in Dutch adult patients.

Development and Validation of the Nasal Obstruction Symptom Evaluation (NOSE) Scale1
A Comprehensive Quality-of-Life Instrument for Aesthetic and Functional Rhinoplasty: The RHINO Scale
The RHINO instrument demonstrates robust reliability and validity in assessing patient-reported satisfaction with rhinoplasty outcomes, and was validated by assessment of test–retest reliability, internal consistency reliability, construct validity, and concurrent validity.
