Coblation intracapsular tonsillectomy (IT) is a relatively new technique in pediatric tonsillectomy and represents a significant step forward in quality and safety in the treatment of pediatric tonsillar hypertrophy. Studies, and our own clinical experience, suggest that it has equivalent efficacy to total tonsillectomy (TT) in the treatment of sleep-disordered breathing and even recurrent tonsillitis1. Furthermore, children who undergo IT have been shown to experience less pain, have increased PO intake, and be more active than those who undergo TT, particularly by POD 52.

Conclusions and significance: All hot tonsillectomy techniques should be avoided as they are related to a higher risk for postoperative bleeding. The high rate of postoperative contacts due to pain after tonsillectomy indicates a need for improvement in pain management. The declining rates of symptom relief must be investigated further.

This study contributes a sociomaterial grounded theory of surgical practice as an embodied response to conditions materialize d by intra-relations of human and more-than-human actors. Shifting root metaphors about practice in surgical education from standardization to stabilization can help residents achieve stable-for-now embodiments of performance as their practice thresholds continue to emerge.

AbstractPurposeLeft untreated, obstructive sleep-disordered breathing (OSDB) are associated with adverse effects on growth and development. History and physical examination alone are used for diagnosing children with OSDB, as polysomnography is not always feasible. Our objective was to develop and validate a Hebrew version of the Pediatric Sleep Questionnaire (PSQ) to help to diagnose and follow-up children before and after adenotonsillectomy surgery for OSDB.MethodsWe conducted a prospective, nonrandomized, controlled trial in an academic medical center. We enrolled parents of children younger than 5  years of age pl...

CONCLUSIONS: Machine learning with oximetry and actigraphy identifies most children needing overnight monitoring as determined by polysomnographic severity of oSDB, supporting a potential resource-conscious screening pathway for children undergoing T&A. IMPACT: We provide proof of principle for the utility of machine learning, oximetry, and actigraphy to screen for severe obstructive sleep apnea syndrome (OSAS) in children.Clinical parameters perform poorly in predicting the severity of OSAS, which is confirmed in the current study.The predictive accuracy for severe OSAS improved by a smaller subset of quantifiable ph...

AbstractTonsillectomy is still surrounded by controversy, especially regarding choice of surgical technique. Despite numerous surgical techniques are present, post-operative pain remains significant postoperative morbidities. An ideal method would lessen complications and minimize operative time and costs. This is a randomized double blinded interventional study. We enrolled 70 subjects and divided into two groups of 35 subjects in each. One group underwent traditional tonsillectomy and another underwent coblation tonsillectomy. We compared operating time, intraoperative blood loss, post-operative pain, return to normal ac...
