Surgery to correct deviated nasal septum.
Septoplasty is an outpatient surgical procedure that is performed to straighten a deviated septum. The septum is a thin wall of cartilage that separates the nasal cavity into right and left sides. Normally, the septum is fairly straight and does not block the breathing passage on either side. However, many patients have curvature in this cartilage that causes narrowing of the airway.
In this example, the yellow dotted line highlights curvature. The black spaces a are much more narrow on one side than the other.
This examples shows deviation to the opposite side.
This is a different orientation but one can see that the septum is almost S-shaped with curvature that blocks both sides.
