Nasal Septal Surgery
Nasal airway obstruction is common in children. The presentation may be dramatic (obstructive sleep apnea), life threatening (choanal atresia in a newborn), or subtle (long face syndrome seen in the teenager as a consequence of long-standing nasal airway obstruction). Deviation of the nasal septum may be the cause of significant nasal airway obstruction.
