Adenoid, Tonsil Removal May Affect Later Respiratory Risks

FRIDAY, June 8, 2018 -- Adenoidectomy and tonsillectomy in children are associated with increased long-term risks of respiratory, infectious, and allergic diseases, according to a study published online June 7 in JAMA Otolaryngology-Head&Neck...

AbstractTonsillectomy with or without adenoidectomy is the commonest procedure performed by an otolaryngologist. It has been performed as an in-patient procedure. To present our experience of 15  years of day care tonsillectomy with or without adenoidectomy and to assess the safety of tonsillectomy as a day care procedure. Design: retrospective study. A retrospective study of all day care tonsillectomies with or without adenoidectomies operated at a Secondary care ENT Hospital from 2002 to 2016 has been carried out. In last 15 years, we have operated 1207 tonsillectomies with or without adenoidectomies as a day c...

ConclusionsAlthough comorbid AR may initially appear to impede improvement in QoL after PITA, QoL was improved similarly 6 months after PITA, irrespective of AR status. In children with comorbid AR, PITA could be safely performed to treat sleep-disordered breathing without concerns regarding worsening of QoL.

CONCLUSIONThe c.1621A>T (p.Thr541Ser) variant which occurs in exon 11 of the FVIII gene, has been is known to cause mild hemophilia A. The Thr541Ser substitution is rare and is present in ~0.009% of the NHLBI exome sequencing project. This is a unique case series of siblings with a rare mutation having normal Factor VIII levels and grandfather with similar mutation who was eventually also diagnosed with mild hemophilia A. The underlying gene mutation is an important but not sole determinant of residual FVIII:C in hemophilia A patients. As our understanding of pathophysiologic process of causative genetic event and basel...

Conclusion: Patients with SCD and a baseline hemoglobin ≥90 g/L who receive a pre-operative top-up transfusion have an increased risk of post-operative complications compared to those who are not transfused. In low and medium risk surgeries, a policy of withholding transfusions for such patients may be considered. Prospective studies validating these findings are needed.DisclosuresNo relevant conflicts of interest to declare.

The objective of this abstract is to evaluate preliminary clinical outcomes of the integrated SCD-pulmonary clinic during the intervention phase (July 2017-June 2018) compared to 24 months prior to implementation (July 2015-June 2017). We hypothesized an integrated clinic model would improve access to specialized pulmonary care for children with SCD and reduce hospitalizations for vaso-occlusive episodes (VOEs). The primary endpoints are adherence to pulmonary clinic appointments and unplanned acute healthcare utilization for SCD-related complications and/or asthma exacerbations. Secondary endpoints are the number of unpla...
