From: Measurement tools for the diagnosis of nasal septal deviation: a systematic review

Study Reason for exclusion
Cho GS et al [16] Discussed association between subjective sensation of nasal obstruction with respect to different locations in the nose with lack of reference to diagnosis of nasal septal deviation
Liu T et al [17] Computer simulations of nasal airflow in nasal obstruction/septal deviation
Chen XB at al [18] Computer simulations of nasal airflow in nasal obstruction/septal deviation
Hanif J et al [19] Little reference to diagnosis of septal deviation, discussed quantification of severity of nasal septum for future surgery
Filho DI et al [20] Little or no reference to diagnosis of nasal septal deviation
Cole P et al [21] Computer simulations of nasal airflow in nasal obstruction/septal deviation
Farhadi, M [22] Unclear on inclusion of patients with only septal deviation/nasal obstruction from other causes
Kahveci OK [23] Only addressed efficacy of NOSE scale in patients receiving septal surgery
Rujanavej V et al [24] Diagnosis of septal deviation made with concurrent nasal obstruction and sinonasal disease
Gogniashvilli G et al [25] Prevalence study of physiological/pathological septal deviation
Garcia GJ et al [26] Computer simulations of nasal airflow in nasal obstruction/septal deviation
Pirila T et al [27] Discussed patient satisfaction with septoplasty, without reference to diagnosis of septal deviation
Chandra RK et al [28] Review of nasal obstruction
Benninger MS [29] Excluded patients with nasal septal deviation
