Abstract

BACKGROUND: The nasal septum deviation is the most common deformity of the nasal, and that can be congenital or acquired. Despite many studies exist about the impact of nasal septum deviation on chronic sinusitis and also association between chronic otitis and mastoid pneumatization; few studies exist about the impact of nasal septum deviation on chronic otitis and mastoid pneumatization.

AIM: The aim of this study was to evaluate the associations of nasal septum deviation and mastoid pneumatization and chronic otitis.

METHODS: In this study review, all CT scans of PNS and Mastoid View in the imaging section from Imam Ali hospital in 2016-2017 years and cases of nasal septum deviation were enrolled. The nasal septum deviation was recorded, and the degree of nasal septum deviation in the coronal plane that showed the maximum deviation of the nasal septum was recorded. The volume of the mastoid cells automatically and directly was calculated using three diameter measurements (2 coronal diameters and 1 axial diameter) by the program. The software of SPSS 22 was used for statistical analysis.

RESULTS: There was no relationship between nasal septum deviation severity and incidence of mastoid pneumatization in patients with nasal septum deviation (P > 0.05). There was relationship between nasal septum deviation severity and chronic otitis in patients with nasal septum deviation (P < 0.05). In patients with moderate and severe intensity of nasal septum deviation, the volume of mastoid air cells in deviation side was lower than the front side (P < 0.05).

CONCLUSION: Based on the results of the CT scan, in patients with moderate and severe nasal septum deviation intensity, the volume of mastoid air cells in deviation side was lower than the front side. Also, there was a relationship between nasal septum deviation severity and chronic otitis.
