Nasal airway obstruction is a common complaint encountered by the otolaryngologist. In-office nasal procedures are becoming increasingly popular and should be considered for patients desiring immediate treatment without the adverse effects of general anesthesia, operating room costs, or scheduling delays. This article discusses the factors in patient selection, room setup, and other considerations. The options available for in-office treatment of nasal valve repair are discussed, including turbinoplasty, septoplasty, and nasal valve repair/functional rhinoplasty–type techniques described in the literature.
