Özet

BackgroundThe aim of this study was to determine whether anterior rhinoscopy (AR), nasal endoscopy (NE) and paranasal sinus computed tomography (PNS CT) can predict other sinonasal obstructive pathologies in the setting of nasal septal deviation (NSD), and to evaluate the impact of preoperative PNS CT on the decision for a surgical procedure in patients with NSD.
