Description of intervention(s) / exposure
We include patients who require nasal septal surgery due to nasal septal deviation. The septoplasty was performed in these patients. However, septoplasty operation is not part of our study and postoperative results were not evaluated in this study. The VAS scale and NOSE scale will be performed to the patient and control groups due to evaluate subjective nasal obstruction. The measurements and questionnaire about this study were performed before nasal septal surgery(septoplasty). Blood cholesterol levels, electrocardiography, and carotid intima-media thickness measurements with B-mode ultrasonography will be performed in both groups.
The questionnaires take approximately 10 minutes. Additionally, the electrocardiography and carotid intima-media thickness measurements take approximately 20 minutes.

Summary
Brief summary
Chronic nasal obstruction owing to deviated nasal septum leads to increased upper respiratory tract resistance and this leads to chronic hypoxia. It is reported that chronic hypoxia is associated with atherosclerosis. The aim of this study was to investigate the association of septum deviation that causes of the nasal obstruction with carotid intima-media thickness.
