The beneficial effect of septoplasty on snoring

Murat Yarıktaş1, Fehmi Döner, Harun Doğru, Mustafa Tüz

Objectives: This study sought to determine whether
septoplasty played a favorable role on snoring complaints
as well.
Patients and Methods: The study included 56 patients
(40 males, 16 females; mean age 40 years; range 21 to
60 years) who underwent septoplasty operation for
causes other than snoring. The patients’ snoring complaints
were evaluated and rated before and three
months after surgery.
Results: Before surgery, 22 patients were found to
have complaints of snoring. The snoring complaints
improved after septoplasty in 16 patients (72.7%).
The decrease in snoring complaints was found statistically
significant (p<0.01).
Conclusion: Improvement in snoring complaints in
patients undergoing septoplasty operation emphasizes
the need for investigating and treating septum
deviations which are a primary cause of upper respiratory
tract obstruction.
