Abstract: 

Background: Eustachian tube connects middle ear space to the nasopharyngeal space. Upper airway obstruction, with any cause, can derange Eustachian tube function. Nasal septal deviation is one of the prevalent causes of upper airway obstruction which can affects the ventilation function of Eustachian tube.
Materials and Methods: This study was conducted on the patients who underwent septoplasty due to severe septal deviation leading to unilateral nasal obstruction in Amiraalam hospital from summer of 1378 till the spring of 1379.
Results: There was 140 patients whose data were as: female patients 34 (24.3%) male patients 106 (75.7%), mean age (22.7). Median age (20) years and mode of age (18) years of age. they were from
12 to 40 years of age.
Conclusion: Comparison between preoperative and postoperative middle ear pressures shows no any significant statistical difference (p=0.798).
