"Please Explain Tonsillectomy and Adenoidectomy
To Me: A Complete Guide to Preparing Your Child for Surgery" is an excellent guide to prepare parents (who help prepare their children) for tonsillectomy and adenoidectomy
The three items on adenoidectomy
were determined with the modified Delphi Method and included in the task-specific checklist (13).
Following dental treatment, adenoidectomy
was performed using curette and nasopharynx was packed with gauze for three minutes until bleeding was controlled.
The present study aimed to determine whether previous adenoidectomy
and/or tonsillectomy is associated with allergic diseases, later in life.
Moreover, individuals with recent history of adenoidectomy
(surgery done within a year) and patients who declined to be included in the study were excluded.
Group 2 underwent myringotomy and grommet insertion and Group 3 underwent myringotomy and grommet insertion along with adenoidectomy
was found to be linked with a more than doubled relative risk of COPD and a nearly doubled relative risk of upper respiratory tract diseases and conjunctivitis, according to the results published in the Journal of the American Medical Association Otolaryngology Head and Neck Surgery.
This study aimed to determine the incidence of revision adenoidectomy
after the use of microdebrider, Coblation, suction cautery, and curette instruments over a 10year period at a single major tertiary children's center in the United States.
Adenoid hypertrophy is a common finding in childhood and is probably associated with AOM, ROM with effusion, and obstructive sleep apnea (OSA), and adenoidectomy
has been known as an effective treatment for COME, which involves removal of the physical obstruction of the Eustachian tube and the establishment of normal pressure and drainage of mucus in the middle ear (8).
Seven patients had undergone adenoidectomy
. Four patients had knee operation, two patients had hip operation, and 5 patients had the history of inguinal hernia repair.
The patient had multiple sets of tympanostomy tubes placed as well as an adenoidectomy
in the past, with limited success in mitigating her middle ear pathology.
, with or without tonsillectomy, is one of the more frequently performed operations within otolaryngology, estimated to be about 129,540 operations per year in the United States [1, 2].
At present, DISE is restricted to children without hypertrophic tonsils and to those with persistent OSA following tonsillectomy and adenoidectomy
20, 2013, recommending against codeine use in all children undergoing tonsillectomy and/or adenoidectomy
. Also, children with obstructive sleep apnea are at risk of opioid-related respiratory depression.
Methods: Patients who had undergone an elective adenoidectomy
after receiving general anesthesia using F-LMA from June 2012 to November 2015 were included.
