Nasal airway obstruction represents a major impact on patients’ quality of life. The causes are multiple, where those of a structural type, frequently require surgery. Nasal obstruction due to nasal valve dysfunction may be overlooked as a cause of nasal obstruction.

A literature review of the subject was carried out, highlighting anatomy, diagnosis and treatment; The most frequently used surgical techniques are described.
