Aim: The purpose of the study is to compare the results of the endoscopic septoplasty without and with endonasal septal suturing techniques.

Materials and Methods: It was prospective study of 60 patients that came in our hospital with nasal blockage.

Results: In our study, only 6% of patients experienced nasal pain, discomfort and headache in endonasal septal suture technique while it’s much higher (76%, 86%, 70% of patients respectively) in without suture technique. Highest number of cases was from 3rd and 4th decade of life in both sexes while male: female was 6:4.
