Effects of anticholinergics on postoperative vomiting, recovery, and hospital stay in children undergoing tonsillectomy with or without adenoidectomy. (1/168)

BACKGROUND: Nausea and vomiting are the most frequent problems after minor ambulatory surgical procedures. The agents used to induce and maintain anesthesia may modify the incidence of emesis. When neuromuscular blockade is antagonized with anticholinesterases, atropine or glycopyrrolate is used commonly to prevent bradycardia and excessive oral secretions. This study was designed to evaluate the effect of atropine and glycopyrrolate on postoperative vomiting in children. METHODS: Ninety-three patients undergoing tonsillectomy with or without adenoidectomy were studied. After inhalation induction of anesthesia with nitrous oxide, oxygen, and halothane, anesthesia was maintained with a nitrous oxide-oxygen mixture, halothane, morphine, and atracurium. Patients were randomized to receive, in a double-blinded manner, either 15 microg/kg atropine or 10 microg/kg glycopyrrolate with 60 microg/kg neostigmine to reverse neuromuscular blockade. Patient recovery, the incidence of postoperative emesis, antiemetic therapy, and the duration of postoperative hospital stay were assessed. RESULTS: There were no significant differences in age, gender, weight, or discharge time from the postanesthesia care unit or the hospital between the groups. Twenty-four hours after operation, the incidence of vomiting in the atropine group (56%) was significantly less than in the glycopyrrolate group (81%; P<0.05). There was no significant difference between the atropine and glycopyrrolate groups in the number of patients who required antiemetics or additional analgesics. CONCLUSIONS: In children undergoing tonsillectomy with or without adenoidectomy, reversal of neuromuscular blockade with atropine and neostigmine is associated with a lesser incidence of postoperative emesis compared with glycopyrrolate and neostigmine.  (+info)

I.v. intraoperative ketoprofen in small children during adenoidectomy: a dose-finding study. (2/168)

We have investigated if a low dose of ketoprofen (0.3 mg kg-1) i.v., provided as good analgesia with less adverse effects than higher doses (1.0 and 3.0 mg kg-1) in 220 children, aged 1-7 yr, undergoing adenoidectomy, in a prospective, randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled, parallel group study. The postoperative analgesic effect was notable even after the lowest dose of ketoprofen. However, the higher doses seemed to provide better analgesia with no increase in adverse events or intraoperative bleeding. None of the children experienced postoperative bleeding which would have required intervention or delayed discharge from hospital. This study confirms the efficacy and safety of intraoperative ketoprofen in children during adenoidectomy.  (+info)

Recovery after halothane anaesthesia induced with thiopental, propofol-alfentanil or halothane for day-case adenoidectomy in small children. (3/168)

We studied recovery from halothane anaesthesia in 93 children, aged 1-3 yr, undergoing day-case adenoidectomy. Children were allocated randomly to receive thiopental 5 mg kg-1 (group TH), alfentanil 10 micrograms kg-1 and propofol 3 mg kg-1 (group PAH) or 5% halothane (group HH) for induction of anaesthesia. In group TH, tracheal intubation was facilitated with succinylcholine (suxamethonium) 1.5 mg kg-1. In groups PAH and HH, tracheal intubation was performed without neuromuscular block, and succinylcholine was used only if required. Anaesthesia was maintained with 1-3% halothane during spontaneous respiration. Times to achieving predetermined recovery end-points were recorded. Quality of recovery was assessed using a score of 1-9 (best to worst) for sedation, crying, restlessness and agitation. A postoperative questionnaire was used to determine the well-being of the child at home, 24 h after operation. Emergence from anaesthesia (response to non-painful stimuli) occurred earlier in group HH (mean 9 (SD 6) min) than in groups PAH (13 (6) min, P < 0.01) and TH (18 (14) min, P < 0.01). Sitting up, walking and home readiness were achieved earlier in groups PAH and HH than in group TH (P < 0.05 for each variable). Children in group TH were more sedated during the first 30 min after anaesthesia than those in the two other groups (P < 0.05) while emergence-related delirium was more common in group HH than in group TH (P < 0.01). Well-being at home was similar in all groups. We conclude that induction of halothane anaesthesia with propofol-alfentanil or halothane provided more rapid recovery and earlier discharge than that with thiopental.  (+info)

Postoperative pain after adenoidectomy in children. (4/168)

We have investigated if pain intensity or analgesic requirements in hospital predicted pain intensity, pain duration or analgesic requirements at home in 611 children, aged 1-7 yr, after day-case adenoidectomy. We also investigated if ketoprofen 0.3-3.0 mg kg-1, administered pre-emptively i.v. during operation, modified pain at home. In hospital, a prospective, randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled study design was performed. A standard anaesthetic technique was used in all children and fentanyl i.v. was available for rescue analgesia. After discharge, the study design was open, experimental, prospective and longitudinal. On return home, children were prescribed ketoprofen tablets 5 mg kg-1 day-1. Parents were asked to complete an analgesia diary; non-responders were contacted by telephone. The response rate was 91%. The number of doses of fentanyl given in hospital correlated with pain intensity at home (P < 0.001). There were no other correlations and no pre-emptive effect of ketoprofen.  (+info)

Double-blind comparison of sevofluran vs propofol and succinylcholine for tracheal intubation in children. (5/168)

We have studied intubating conditions in 64 healthy children, aged 3-10 yr, undergoing adenotonsillectomy, in a double-blind, randomized study. Intubation was performed 150 s after induction using either 8% sevoflurane in nitrous oxide and oxygen or propofol 3-4 mg kg-1 with succinylcholine 2 mg kg-1. An anaesthetist blinded to the technique performed intubation and scored intubating conditions using Krieg and Copenhagen Consensus Conference (CCC) scores. The trachea was intubated successfully at the first attempt in all patients under clinically acceptable conditions, although scores were significantly better with propofol and succinylcholine. The sevoflurane technique cost 3.62 +/- 0.55 Pounds to completion of tracheal intubation, significantly more (P < 0.001) than the cost of propofol-succinylcholine and isoflurane (2.04 +/- 0.54 Pounds) when based on actual amount of drug used. This cost increased to 4.38 +/- 0.05 Pounds when based on whole ampoules, which is significantly more than the cost of sevoflurane (P < 0.001).  (+info)

Comparison of intravenous and oral ketoprofen for postoperative pain after adenoidectomy in children. (6/168)

One hundred children, aged 1-9 yr, undergoing adenoidectomy were randomized to receive ketoprofen 1 mg kg-1 either i.v. with an oral placebo (n = 40) or ketoprofen 1 mg kg-1 orally with an i.v. placebo (n = 40), or both oral and i.v. placebo (n = 20). The study design was prospective and double blind with parallel groups. The pain was assessed at rest and during swallowing using the Maunuksela pain scale (0 = no pain, 10 = worst possible pain) after surgery for 3 h. Fentanyl 0.5 microgram kg-1 i.v. was given for rescue analgesia. Children in the i.v. group needed significantly less doses (1, 1-3; median and 10th/90th percentiles) of rescue analgesic compared with the oral group (2, 1-3; P = 0.024). Of those who needed rescue analgesic, three out of 30 children in the i.v. group required three or more doses of fentanyl compared with 10 out of 28 children in the oral group. There were no differences between the groups with respect to pain scores, operation times, perioperative bleeding or frequency of adverse events.  (+info)

PCR-based detection, restriction endonuclease analysis, and transcription of tonB in Haemophilus influenzae and Haemophilus parainfluenzae isolates obtained from children undergoing tonsillectomy and adenoidectomy. (7/168)

We developed and evaluated a PCR-based-restriction endonuclease analysis method to detect and analyze the tonB gene of Haemophilus influenzae and Haemophilus parainfluenzae from pediatric patients undergoing tonsillectomy and adenoidectomy. Multiple sites from the same patient, including the surface of adenoids and tonsils, as well as the core of tonsils, were cultured on chocolate agar and identified using standard procedures and the API NH Kit. A total of 55 H. influenzae isolates were recovered from different sites of 20 patients, and 32 H. parainfluenzae isolates were recovered from various sites of 12 patients. DNA was extracted from American Type Culture Collection strains and test isolates by the PureGene kit. Two primers, G1 (21-mer) and G2 (23-mer), were designed by us to amplify by PCR the tonB gene that consists of an 813-bp fragment. A nested PCR using primers T1 (23-mer) and T2 (24-mer) that flank an internal sequence to the gene of the order of 257 bp and restriction endonuclease digestion using XhoI and BglII were done to detect whether heterogeneity within the gene exists between the two species. Reverse transcription-PCR (RT-PCR) was finally done to detect transcription of the gene in both species. Our data have shown that the tonB gene was detected in both species. It is known to encode a virulent protein, TonB, in H. influenzae; however, demonstration of its presence in H. parainfluenzae is novel. Nested-PCR and restriction endonuclease analysis have shown that the tonB gene is apparently structurally the same in both species, with possible differences that may exist in certain H. parainfluenzae isolates. RT-PCR done on selected numbers of H. influenzae and H. parainfluenzae have shown that the tonB gene was transcribed in both species. This shows that the TonB protein, if expressed, may play a different role in the virulence in H. parainfluenzae since it is not needed for heme or heme complexes uptake as with H. influenzae.  (+info)

Long-term follow-up of obstructive sleep apnea syndrome following surgery in children and adults. (8/168)

Obstructive sleep apnea syndrome (OSAS) is characterized by recurrent apneas during sleep, resulting in repetitive hypoxemia. The present study retrospectively analyzed subjective and objective assessments of the patients with OSAS in a relatively long-term follow-up. From February 1986 to August 1996, 53 patients received surgical treatment for OSAS and snoring. Thirty-seven (27 males and 10 females) out of 53 patients completed the questionnaire and postoperative sleep study was obtained in 6 patients. In 20 children (<15 years), snoring, sleep apnea, and daytime sleepiness completely disappeared in 12, 19, and 16, and improved in 8, 1, and 4, respectively. These findings confirm that tonsillectomy and/or adenoidectomy in children may be the first selection for treatment. In 17 adults, snoring, sleep apnea, and daytime sleepiness completely disappeared in 2, 5, and 8, improved in 11, 8, and 7, and was unchanged in 4, 4, and 1, respectively. The apnea index in adults was significantly decreased in both early and late postoperative periods. These results suggest that surgery is a satisfactory alternative for adult patients if performed accurate preoperative diagnosis of the localization of the airway collapse and careful long-term follow-up.  (+info)

Adenoidectomy is the surgical removal of the adenoid for reasons which include impaired breathing through the nose, chronic infections, or recurrent earaches. The surgery is less commonly performed in adults in whom the adenoid is much smaller and less active than it is in children. It is most often done on an outpatient basis under general anesthesia. Post-operative pain is generally minimal and reduced by icy or cold foods. The procedure is often combined with tonsillectomy (this combination is usually called an adenotonsillectomy or T&A) and recovery time can range from several hours to two or three days (though as age increases so does recovery time). Adenoidectomy is not often performed under one year of age as adenoid function is part of the bodys immune system but its contribution to this decreases progressively beyond this age. Adenoidectomy was first performed using a ring forceps through the nasal cavity by William Meyer in 1867. In the early 1900s, adenoidectomies began to be ...

Adeno)tonsillectomy reduces the incidence of sore throat episodes by 1.2 episodes per year (95% CI 1.1 to 1.3), sore throat associated school absence by 2.8 days per year (95% CI 1.6 to 3.9), and upper respiratory infections by 0.5 episodes per year (95% CI 0.3 to 0.7).. In contrast with the Cochrane reviewers,7 who excluded all trials in which children of the surgical group were randomised to adenotonsillectomy instead of tonsillectomy alone, all randomised trials studying the efficacy of (adeno)tonsillectomy were included in the present meta-analysis. In daily practice most children suffering from recurrent throat infections undergo tonsillectomy combined with adenoidectomy and not tonsillectomy alone; in the Netherlands 90% of tonsillectomies in children are combined with adenoidectomy, in the USA this percentage is 84%, in Canada 75%, and in England 32%.

Some otolaryngologists administer topical phenylephrine for bleeding control in adenoidectomy surgery. Absorption of this drug from surgical site can lead to increase in blood pressure due to vasoconstriction and then bradycardia related to baroreceptore reflex. Our case was an intraoperative arrest of a 9-yrs-old girl related to administration of topical phenylephrine during adenoidectomy however, bradycardia is a rare complication of topical phenylephrine in ENT surgeries probably due to preoperative administration of atropine or glycopirolate. Due to severe complications have been ever seen, avoidance of topical administration of phenylephrine or other vasoconstrictors with undetermined doses is reasonable.

In this study, children who underwent adenotonsillectomy had lower rates of cognitive and behavioral problems one year after surgery. This seems to suggest that treating the underlying sleep disturbance alleviated ADHD symptoms. It is important to remember, however, that the study was not designed to establish a cause and effect relationship between adenotonsillectomy and ADHD outcomes. In addition, nearly half of the children who had adenotonsillectomy had no sleep problems to begin with, and the childrens ADHD diagnoses did not closely correspond to their disturbed sleep. Adenotonsillectomy, therefore, should not be viewed as a treatment for conditions such as ADHD.. On the other hand, in those children whose sleep apnea may be contributing to persistent cognitive and behavior problems during the day, the surgeon may be of some help in selected cases where enlarged tonsils and adenoids are clearly to blame. Symptoms of sleep apnea include loud snoring, restless sleep, excessive sleepiness ...

Polysomnography (PSG) has been recommended by the American Academy of Pediatrics as the gold standard for the diagnosis of obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) versus mild sleep disordered breathing (SDB) prior to tonsillectomy and adenoidectomy (T+A) in children. Mild SDB includes primary snoring and upper airway resistance syndrome. Controversy exists regarding the accuracy of history and physical exam (H+P) alone in children for the diagnosis of OSA versus mild SDB prior to T+A. Thus, PSG has been recommended to confirm the diagnosis. ...

There are various age groups that the CPAP would be prescribed for. Even though the standard treatment for OSA in children is a tonsillectomy/adenoidectomy, CPAP is prescribed for those who dont respond to the surgery or those whom the surgery is not recommended. Compliance at this stage in life is high, because it is the parent forcing the child to use it. Teenagers are less compliant and have different sleep patterns. They may choose to not wear their CPAP for social reasons. The social awareness of OSA and CPAP continues to grow however, probably due to the relationship between childhood obesity and OSA.. For adults, adherence tends to be higher when they see an improvement in symptoms. In addition to support that they get from home, if their daytime sleepiness is lower and sleep disturbances are reduced, there is a good chance they are going to stick with the treatment. The caveat here is patients suffering from insomnia. These adults tend to be more aware of the CPAP discomfort since they ...

Objective. To investigate health care utilization of children with obstructive sleep apnea syndrome (OSAS) 1 year after adenotonsillectomy (T&A).. Methods. A longitudinal, case-controlled, prospective study was conducted at Clalit Health Care Services (CHS), a health maintenance organization in the southern region of Israel. We defined 3 groups of children: 1) children who had OSAS and were treated with T&A (n = 130); 2) children who had OSAS and did not undergo surgery (n = 90); and 3) control subjects who were matched by age, sex, and area of residency (n = 520) and randomly selected from the CHS database. OSAS was verified with polysomnography studies in all patients. Indices of health care utilization were analyzed 1 year before and 1 year after T&A. Medical records in the emergency department and during hospitalization were reviewed for diagnosis before the polysomnography diagnosis.. Results. Mean age of all children with OSAS was 5.6 ± 3.6 years. Total annual health care costs were ...
Obstructive sleep-disordered breathing (SDB) affects at least 2-3% of children and may have substantial adverse impact on behavior and cognition. Adenotonsillectomy (AT), the second most common surgical procedure in children, is now performed more often for suspected SDB than for any other indication. However, recent studies among an increasingly obese population now show something alarming: many if not most children still have SDB after AT, and many still suffer from residual neurobehavioral morbidity. Furthermore, the investigators ongoing, 12-year, NIH-funded research has shown that standard preoperative polysomnographic measures of SDB do not consistently predict post-AT improvement in behavior and cognition. This may arise in part because many children after AT still have SDB, and because linear relationships between standard SDB measures and neurobehavioral morbidity may not exist. Even at subtle levels, SDB may promote significant neurobehavioral morbidity. Some have suggested that ...
Pediatricians routinely advise parents of children who snore regularly and have sleepiness, fatigue or other symptoms consistent with sleep disordered breathing, to get a sleep study; this can help determine whether their child has obstructive sleep apnea, which is often treated with surgery to remove the tonsils and adenoids (adenotonsillectomy). Often pediatricians make surgery recommendations based on the results of this sleep study.. But a new finding from the University of Maryland School of Medicine (UMSOM) suggests that the pediatric sleep study -- used to both diagnose pediatric sleep apnea and to measure improvement after surgery - may be an unreliable predictor of who will benefit from having an adenotonsillectomy.. About 500,000 children under age 15 have adenotonsillectomies every year in the U.S. to treat obstructive sleep apnea. The American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) recommends the surgery as a first-line therapy to treat the condition, which can cause behavioral issues, ...
00160 Patient Information Removal of tonsils and/or adenoids is one of the most frequently performed throat operations. It has proven to be a safe, effective surgical method to resolve breathing obstruction, throat infections and manage recurrent childhood ear disease. Pain following surgery is an unpleasant side effect, which can be reasonably controlled with medication. It is similar to the pain patients have experienced with throat infections, but often is also felt in the ears after surgery. There are also some risks associated with removal of tonsils and/or adenoids. Post operative bleeding occurs in about 2% of cases, most often immediate, although it can occur at any time during the first 2 weeks after surgery. Treatment of bleeding is usually an outpatient procedure, but sometimes requires control in the operating room under general anesthesia. In rare cases, a blood transfusion may be recommended. Because swallowing is painful after surgery, there may be poor oral intake of fluids. If ...

There are treatment options available to fix the OSAS, if your child is found to have OSAS. These treatments usually engage removing enlarged adenoids and tonsils in a process known as an adenotonsillectomy.. However, not all therapies are as drastic as surgery. For children who are overweight, which may be causing their apnea, losing weight can be the key to getting them back on the road to health.. Also, allergies have been known cause of OSAS, and treatment for the childs allergy can bring them back up to health. For children that exhibit the same OSAS issues after an adenotonsillectomy, or children that are unable to have surgery performed, CPAP therapy with the use of a nasal mask is an option.. Whatever the cause, it is significant to find out accurately which type of child snoring is affecting your child, and it is significant to help your child get back into good health, if OSAS is the result of your diagnosis, so that they can lead a more normal life.. ...

The aim of this thesis was two-fold: first, to evaluate four different functional aspects of the speech and language spectrum; oral-motor function, voice, /s/-articulation and phonology in preschool children with tonsillar hypertrophy before and after surgical treatment. The second aim was to investigate weather the outcome of surgery was equal for two surgical techniques; tonsillectomy or tonsillotomy combined with adenoidectomy when necessary. In all included publications (I-IV), 67 children on waiting list for tonsil surgery and randomized to either tonsillectomy (33) or tonsillotomy (34) participated. The children were assessed and audio-recorded within a month before surgery and six months postoperatively. Results were compared to age-matched control groups.. In the first study, oral motor function was assessed using the Nordic Orofacial Test-Screening, NOT-S, consisting of a structured interview and a clinical examination. Before surgery, the children in the study group differed in all ...

The 90th percentile in the number of annual respiratory illness days was 98. Children above this limit (n = 109) had a median of 9.6 acute respiratory infections per year. Rhinovirus was detected in 58% of their infections. Of the children with recurrent infections, 60% were diagnosed with at least 3 episodes of acute otitis media, 73% received at least 3 antibiotic treatments and 21% were hospitalized for an acute respiratory infection. Tympanostomy was performed for 35% and adenoidectomy for 13% of the children. Asthma was diagnosed in 12% by 24 months of age. Older siblings increased the risk of recurrent respiratory infections. Early nasopharyngeal colonization with Streptococcus pneumoniae was common in children who later developed recurrent infections ...
Adenoidectomy in children is performed after general criteria, the history of the medical disease being very important, the incidence of acute episodes and recurrence of different types of infection in ENT field, without a possibility to establish the most important symptom to be predictive for surgery, because all the patients are individual. In the age group between 3 and 6 years, serous otitis media is predominant as is oral breathing. Rhinosinusitis appear to be more predominant in the age group between 6 and 10 years. We cannot establish a relationship between the dimension of adenoidal tissue and associated disease, but, associated diseases like allergic rhinitis have an important prognostic role. ...

Medicine has improved a lot throughout the years, so you have many different options to solve this issue. Uvulopalatoplasty with a laser shortens the uvula. It also makes small cuts, but when they heal, it actually stiffens the tissue so it wont vibrate. There are implants called palatal implants that prevent a breakdown of the soft palate. Other procedures include adenoidectomy, tonsillectomy, and Thermal Ablation Palatoplasty. Every one of these is a valid option because it will have a positive impact on your relationship.

Anti tumor necrosis factor agents are a valuable addition to the armamentarium against rheumatoid arthritis but have some serious side effects which clinicians should be aware about. We present a case of a 54 year old Caucasian male with refractory rheumatoid arthritis who developed mononeuritis multiplex four weeks after starting adalimumab therapy. Complete resolution of neurological and electromyography findings was seen upon stopping therapy. These agents can be a double-edged sword in the management of rheumatological illnesses. Though they help treat refractory disease, their potential side effects can include mononeuritis multiplex which can be recognized by means of clinical features, electromyography and nerve biopsy as depicted in our case.
Thank you for your response. My son is almost 5. He was born healthy but at age 2 months had a cardiac arrest due to viral meningitis and has been unconscious, ventilator dependent and tube fed since then. I spoke to our doctor and he said all his ventilator dependent patients suffer from recurrent ear infections and he wouldnt opt for tubes or adenoidectomy because putting him through sedation is risky and the surgery wouldnt be justified. He definitely has a lot of mucous and secretions from his trach (not more than other trach patients but he still needs to be suctioned every few hours). He has no swallow and needs his mouth suctioned constantly. The doctor said that as long as the ear infections arent causing a fever, we should look at it like a runny nose and nothing more serious than that. The only thing he recommends is painkiller when he seems to be suffering. Keeping water out of the ears is something I will try; Im usually so occupied with keeping water out of his cannula that I ...
