Septoplasty is one of the most commonly performed operations in Otolaryngology. It is often considered an easy operation. Yet it is still accompanied by a relatively high rate of failure and complications. It is definitely not an operation in which one surgical technique can suffice for all circumstances. Rather it requires a variety of techniques in accordance to the various septal pathologies in order to achieve a favorable outcome. This study provides a comprehensive review of septoplasty including current concepts, historical background, classification, updated surgical techniques, and management of complications. In particular, the surgical techniques that ensure a successful correction and minimal complications are highlighted.
