Objective: Traditional surgeries for the deviated nasal septum improves the nasal airway but recent development and advancement of the knowledge about endoscope has changed the treatment modality significantly. Endoscopic approach under good Illumination and magnification lessen the complication. This study is done to see the advantages and limitations of endoscopic septoplasty Method: Total 120 cases of symptomatic deviated nasal septum, refractory to conservative medical treatment were randomly selected on the basis of clinical examination in a single institute. It was a prospective study, performed to see the advantages and limitations of endoscopic septoplasty. Informed written consent was taken in all cases. All the patients underwent endoscopic septoplasty under general anesthesia after proper evaluation. Results: There was a slight male predominance. 13 year child was the youngest patient and 58 was the oldest. During endoscopic septoplasty a large number of patients needed some additional surgery like, inferior turbinoplasty in 27 (22.5%), functional endoscopic sinus surgery in 11 patients (9.16%) etc. The complication rate was minimum (4.16%). Patient’s satisfaction was high. Though there were some limitations but we observed so many advantages of this procedure. Conclusion: Though conventional Septoplasty is widely practiced by most ENT surgeons till now, the endoscopic approach can be considered as a better alternative
