Abstract

Objectives: the possible impact of nasal septal deformities (SD) on cardiac pathology has not been well studied, despite growing evidence among data showing that upper airway obstruction has a negative effect on cardiac function in general and a "deviated nasal septum" being considered one of the most frequent factors responsible for impaired nasal breathing.
