Nasal obstruction is often multifactorial and knowledge of the contributing factors is critical to appropriate evaluation, diagnosis, and execution of a treatment plan. Recognizing and appropriately managing all components of nasal obstruction will increase the likelihood of symptomatic improvement and patient satisfaction.
