Anatomical context of Adenoidectomy

  • CASE 2: on re-induction of anaesthesia with sevoflurane because of profuse bleeding following nasal adenoidectomy in a 4-year-old healthy girl with a family history of epilepsy, there were symmetrical tonic and clonic seizure-like movements for 30-40 s in the upper and lower extremities [16].
  • Thymidine incorporation by lymphocytes obtained from adenoids (AVL) and blood (PBL) were compared in 27 children undergoing adenoidectomy [17].
  • We suggest that the benefits of adenoidectomy in children with SOM may possibly come from removing a potential source of inflammatory mediators in the vicinity of the Eustachian tube [18].
  • Because this anomaly can lie in close proximity to the midline of the posterior part of the pharynx, it poses a significant risk during both major pharyngeal tumor resection and less extensive procedures such as tonsillectomy, adenoidectomy and palatopharyngoplasty [19].
  • Despite the trends in outcome favouring combined operations, the extra morbidity associated with the addition of tonsillectomy does not at present justify recommendation for removal of the tonsils in addition to adenoidectomy for cases with SOM [20].

Associations of Adenoidectomy with chemical compounds

  • Pain management after adenoidectomy with ketoprofen: comparison of rectal and intravenous routes [21].
  • We studied recovery from halothane anaesthesia in 93 children, aged 1-3 yr, undergoing day-case adenoidectomy [22].
  • E.c.g. changes were compared in 152 children undergoing adenoidectomy of adenotonsillectomy (T + A) under halothane or enflurane anaesthesia [23].
  • In this study, we examined the effect of a single intraoperative dose of fentanyl on emergence characteristics in children undergoing adenoidectomy [24].
  • In group A mean cortisol concentrations increased from 235.7 nmol litre-1 to 655.7 nmol litre-1 after adenoidectomy (P less than 0.01) and in group B from 121.4 nmol litre-1 to 427.9 nmol litre-1 (P less than 0.01) [25].
