Endoscopic repair of a unilateral choanal atresia
Surgical repair is generally recommended to restore the normal anatomy, function, and development of the nasal passage. Surgical intervention can be considered either emergent or elective depending on whether the atresia is unilateral or bilateral, and whether the accompanying respiratory symptoms are mild or severe.

Endoscopic sinus surgery setup Hopkins rod sinus endoscopes and tower Image guidance/navigation
Flexible fiberoptic nasal endoscopy CT Maxillofacial/Sinus without contrast protocoled for image guidance Genetic work-up
Septum Inferior turbinate Nasal floor Skull base Nasopharynx
Advantages of surgery include restoring the normal anatomy, function, and development of the nasal passages to improve respiratory symptoms and facilitate extubation in severe cases.
