P. C. Shukla, Charu Singh, H. N. Dhungana


The present paper aims to study the radiological and clinical aspects of septum deformities in chronic rhinosinusitis patients in Northern Indian Population. The classification of nasal septum deformities is another challenge in the management of septum deformities patients suffering from chronic rhinosinusitis (CRS). The present study shows that the septum deformities are very common in CRS patients. The Mladina classification is also discussed in the paper. Results show that types 7 septum deformities is very common in CRS patients compared to healthy population. In the present study, it is revealed that (Table 1) the mostly type 7 deformities is composed by either type 1, 2, 3, 4 or type 5 and 6. The combination of type 3 and 6 was also existed but it was quite low. The combination of 1, 2, 3, 4 types deformities as type 7 deformity was found in 20 (25%) CRS patients. 48 (59%) patients show the combination of type 5 and 6 deformities. A few patients (10%) show type 3 and 6 deformity.
