Definition of «Deviated septum»

Deviated septum: A condition in which the nasal septum (the thin wall that separates the air passages on either side of the nose) is displaced to one or the other side of the face. A deviated septum most commonly arises after trauma or injury to the nose. Symptoms can include obstruction of air flow, frequent sinus infections, nasal congestion ("stuffy nose"), and an increased risk of nosebleeds. Correction of a deviated septum involves surgical repair.
