Congenital choanal atresia is one of the most common congenital malformations of the nasal cavity. This malformation was first described by J. Roederer more than 200 years ago at the beginning of the 19th century, however, the condition still causes numerous discussions among otorhinolaryngologists regarding the surgical treatment approach and postoperative management of patients. Congenital bilateral choanal atresia is a lifethreatening condition, and clear awareness of physicians about the diagnostic and treatment strategies for neonates with this type of nasal obstruction is of great importance for patient stabilization. I n the presented article, the authors have characterized the methods of surgical treatment of congenital choanal atresia described by domestic and foreign otorhinolaryngologists over the last 25 years.
