Septal deviations interfere with the nasal airflow and contribute to the deformities in the external appearance of the nose. An aesthetically and functionally satisfactory correction of severe septal deformities often requires temporary intraoperative removal of the septal cartilage for appropriate remodeling. This article describes septoplasty through dorsal approach for the correction of septal deviation. From March 2001 to April 2004, the author performed septoplasty through dorsal approach for the correction of septal deviations on 45 patients, of whom 22 of whom had nasal obstruction. Open rhinoplasty was used for dorsal approach in all patients and operation was performed under the general anesthesia or local anesthesia. The follow-up period of the patients ranged from 3 to 15 months with a mean of 10 months, and postoperative results were quite satisfactory. There was neither incidences of patients' complaints, nor any complications such as hematoma, septal perforation, supratip deformity, or recurrence. And there was some improvement of nasal obstruction in 15 patients. In conclusion, Septoplasty through dorsal approach is an effective method for the correction of septal deviation and improvement of the nasal airway obstruction.
