Effects on the ciliated epithelium of protein D-producing and -nonproducing nontypeable Haemophilus influenzae in nasopharyngeal tissue cultures. (1/150)

A pair of isogenic, nontypeable Haemophilus influenzae strains, one expressing protein D and the other protein D-negative, was compared in their ability to cause damage in a human nasopharyngeal tissue culture model. Damage was assessed by measuring the ciliary beat frequency (CBF) of tissue specimens at 12 h intervals. Cultures inoculated with H. influenzae manifested a decrease in CBF beginning after 12 h, with a maximum decrease after 36 h. The impairment of ciliary function by the protein D-expressing strain was significantly greater than that caused by the protein D-negative mutant (P<.01). Tissue specimens examined by scanning and transmission electron microscopy after 24 h appeared normal. After 48 h of incubation, the protein D-expressing strain caused a significant loss of cilia. These findings suggest that protein D is involved in the pathogenesis of upper respiratory tract infections due to nontypeable H. influenzae, probably by enhancing functional and morphological damage to cilia.  (+info)

Residual low-level viral replication could explain discrepancies between viral load and CD4+ cell response in human immunodeficiency virus-infected patients receiving antiretroviral therapy. (2/150)

We report the evolution of chronic infection with human immunodeficiency virus type 1 (HIV-1) in a patient treated with stavudine plus didanosine, whose CD4+ lymphocyte count progressively decreased, despite a sustained plasma viral load <20 copies/mL. After 12 months of therapy, treatment was switched to zidovudine plus lamivudine plus nelfinavir. CD4+ T cell count decreased from 559 x 10(6)/L at month 0 to 259 x 10(6)/L at month 12. Plasma viral load decreased from 21,665 HIV-1 RNA copies/mL at baseline (month 0) to <20 copies/mL after 1 month of therapy with stavudine plus didanosine, and remained below 20 copies/mL until month 12, but always >5 copies/mL. Viral load in tonsilar tissue at month 12 was 125,000 copies/mg of tissue. After the change to triple-drug therapy, the plasma viral load decreased to 5 copies/mL, the CD4+ T cell count increased to 705 x 10(6)/L, and the viral load in tonsilar tissue decreased to <40 copies/mg of tissue at month 24. A low level of HIV-1 replication could explain the lack of immunologic response in patients with apparent virological response.  (+info)

Amoxicillin for fever and sore throat due to non-exudative pharyngotonsillitis: beneficial or harmful? (3/150)

OBJECTIVES: To determine duration of signs and symptoms and adverse reactions after treatment with amoxicillin of patients with fever and sore throat due to non-exudative pharyngotonsillitis. DESIGN: This was a randomized, double-blinded, placebo-controlled trial. Outpatients at four medical centers were enrolled. Patients over 5 years of age presented with fever and sore throat for less than 10 days due to non-exudative pharyngotonsillitis. Cases with any of the following symptoms or illness were excluded: earache, nasal discharge with foul smell, rheumatic fever, valvular heart disease, renal disease, and penicillin hypersensitivity. Amoxicillin or identical placebo at the dosage of 50 mg/ kg per day was given three or four times daily for 7 days. RESULTS: There were 1217 patients enrolled in this study. Some were lost to follow-up, which is the reason for the variability in number of cases in these analyses. After therapy, duration of fever was 2.46 and 2.48 days (P = 0.78) and of sore throat 3.01 and 3.04 days (P = 0.80) in amoxicillin (n = 431) and placebo (n = 436) groups, respectively. Complications were clinically documented in 13 (2.5%) and 16 (3.0%) cases in amoxicillin (n = 527) and placebo (n = 524) groups (P = 0.56). Two cases (0.46% and 0.46%) from each group (n= 433 and 431) were positive by antistreptolysin O antibody determination. The history of carditis and abnormal urinalysis after treatment were not obtained. CONCLUSIONS: Amoxicillin therapy for non-exudative pharyngotonsillitis conferred no beneficial or harmful effect.  (+info)

Comparison of short-course (5 day) cefuroxime axetil with a standard 10 day oral penicillin V regimen in the treatment of tonsillopharyngitis. (4/150)

Oral penicillin V given three times daily in doses of 50,000-100,000 IU daily has been the standard treatment for tonsillopharyngitis for the last few decades. These regimens, initially recommended by the American Heart Association, were extrapolated from i.v. dosing with long-acting forms of penicillin which had been shown to prevent post-streptococcal sequelae. More recently, several antibiotics, including cefuroxime axetil, have been shown to be at least as effective as penicillin G in eradicating group A beta-haemolytic streptococci (GABHS) but their influence on post-streptococcal sequelae has never been assessed in a large-scale trial. The German Society for Pediatric Infectious Diseases (DGPI) undertook a large study of culture-proven tonsillopharyngitis involving several agents and included a 1 year follow-up to establish the effect on sequelae. In one arm of this study, cefuroxime 250 mg bid was compared with 50,000 IU penicillin V given in three divided doses. Cefuroxime axetil was more effective than oral penicillin V in eradicating GABHS at the assessment 2-4 days post-treatment (441/490 (90%) patients versus 1196/1422 (84%) patients; P = 0.001). Clinically, the two agents were equivalent in efficacy, and carriage rates were similar (11.1% and 13.8%, respectively) in patients receiving cefuroxime axetil and penicillin V, 7-8 weeks post-treatment. One case of glomerular nephritis occurred in a patient given penicillin V. There were no post-streptococcal sequelae confirmed for patients treated with cefuroxime axetil. The findings confirm the previously reported efficacy of short-course (4-5 day) treatments with cefuroxime axetil and indicate that short-course treatment is comparable to the standard oral penicillin V regimen in preventing post-streptococcal sequelae.  (+info)

Interaction of Bordetella pertussis with human respiratory mucosa in vitro. (5/150)

The human respiratory tract pathogen Bordetella pertussis is the major cause of whooping cough in infants and young children, and also causes chronic cough in adults. B. pertussis infection damages ciliated epithelium in the respiratory tract. However, the interaction of the bacterium with the respiratory mucosa is poorly understood, and previous studies have either utilized animal tissue which may not be appropriate, or isolated cell systems which lack the complexity of the respiratory mucosa. We have studied the interaction of B. pertussis strain BP536 with human nasal turbinate tissue in an air-interface organ culture over 5 days. We have also compared infection by BP536 with two other strains, Tohama I and CN2992, to determine whether the interactions observed with BP536 are consistent, and, in both nasal turbinate and adenoid organ cultures at 24 h, to determine whether there were differences between tissue from different parts of the respiratory tract. BP536 adhered to cilia, most commonly at their base, and disorganized their spatial arrangement, they also adhered to damaged tissue and mucus, but very rarely to unciliated cells. Within the first 24 h there was a five-fold increase in bacterial density on ciliated cells, and the total number of adherent bacteria increased up to 96 h. Infection caused increased mucus at 24h and an increase in damaged epithelium from 72 h which involved both ciliated and unciliated cells. The number of residual ciliated cells did not decrease after 72 h. The three different strains of B. pertussis exhibited similar interactions with the mucosa, and there was no tissue specificity for adenoid or turbinate tissue. We conclude that B. pertussis adhered to multiple sites on the mucosa and caused hypersecretion and epithelial damage which are the pathological changes described in vivo.  (+info)

Adenoids provide a microenvironment for the generation of CD4(+), CD45RO(+), L-selectin(-), CXCR4(+), CCR5(+) T lymphocytes, a lymphocyte phenotype found in the middle ear effusion. (6/150)

Adenoidectomy in children with otitis media with effusion reduces inflammation in the middle ear by an unknown mechanism. Potentially, the adenoids of these children may serve as a site for the differentiation of lymphocytes, which after entering blood circulation eventually extravasate in the middle ear mucosa and thereby contribute to excessive inflammation. During lymphocyte extravasation various adhesion molecules and chemokines play a crucial role. To evaluate possible connections between the adenoids and middle ear inflammation, the expression of the chemokine receptors CXCR4 and CCR5 and the lymphocyte homing receptor L-selectin were analyzed in adenoidal and middle ear lymphocytes. It was found that most CD4(+) T lymphocytes in the middle ear effusion express the memory phenotype marker CD45RO and the chemokine receptors CXCR4 and CCR5, but are negative for the lymphocyte homing receptor L-selectin. This cell phenotype was rare in peripheral blood but was found much more frequently in the adenoids. The results suggest that the adenoids provide a microenvironment for the generation for CD4(+), CD45RO(+), L-selectin(-), CXCR4(+) and CCR5(+) T lymphocytes. Further, these cells may include cells that have the capacity to home to the middle ear mucosa. As the adenoidal CD4(+) memory phenotype CD45RO(+) T cells expressed the activation antigen CD69 and included cells expressing the HIV co-receptors CXCR4 and CCR5 at a high level, they may be permissive for HIV infection.  (+info)

Cytokeratin 17 is expressed in cells infected with respiratory syncytial virus via NF-kappaB activation and is associated with the formation of cytopathic syncytia. (7/150)

We used differential display to detect enhanced expression of an mRNA fragment encoding cytokeratin 17 (Ck-17) in respiratory syncytial virus (RSV)-infected epithelial cells. Expression increased 12-fold by 96 h after infection but remained unchanged in cells challenged with virus in the presence of neutralizing anti-RSV fusion protein antibody. Immunoblots of RSV-infected cell lysates probed with an anti-keratin antibody demonstrated stable expression of total cytokeratins over time. When probed with an anti-Ck-17 monoclonal antibody, Ck-17 was first detected at 4 days after infection. In situ staining demonstrated that Ck-17 expression localized to regions of syncytia formation. Expression of Ck-17 mRNA also increased in response to intracellular RSV-F protein in the absence of active RSV infection. No increase in Ck-17 mRNA expression and no syncytia were observed in RSV-infected cells grown in the presence of the NF-kappaB inhibitor gliotoxin. These results suggest that RSV-induced transcriptional activation of the Ck-17 gene is dependent on an NF-kappaB-associated signaling pathway.  (+info)

Human nasopharyngeal-associated lymphoreticular tissues. Functional analysis of subepithelial and intraepithelial B and T cells from adenoids and tonsils. (8/150)

Subepithelial and intraepithelial lymphocytes of human adenoids and tonsils were characterized and directly compared to determine the potential contribution of these tissues to mucosal and systemic immune responses. The distribution of T and B cell subsets, cytokine patterns, and antibody (Ab) isotype profiles were similar for adenoids and tonsils. Both tissues contained predominantly B cells ( approximately 65%), approximately 5% macrophages, and 30% CD3(+) T cells. The T cells were primarily of the CD4(+) subset ( approximately 80%). Tonsillar intraepithelial lymphocytes were also enriched in B cells. The analysis of dispersed cells revealed a higher frequency of cells secreting IgG than IgA and the predominant Ig subclass profiles were IgG1 > IgG3 and IgA1 > IgA2, respectively. In situ analysis also revealed higher numbers of IgG- than IgA-positive cells. These IgG-positive cells were present in the epithelium and in the subepithelial zones of both tonsils and adenoids. Mitogen-triggered T cells from tonsils and adenoids produced both Th1- and Th2-type cytokines, clearly exhibiting their pluripotentiality for support of cell-mediated and Ab responses. Interestingly, antigen-specific T cells produced interferon-gamma and lower levels of interleukin-5. These results suggest that adenoids and tonsils of the nasopharyngeal-associated lymphoreticular tissues represent a distinct component of the mucosal-associated lymphoreticular tissues with features of both systemic and mucosal compartments.  (+info)

Bacterial infections of the tonsils, especially those caused by Streptococcus, are first treated with antibiotics. Tonsillectomy, removal of the tonsils and/or adenoids (adenoidectomy), can be an option when infections return frequently even after antibiotic therapy or if there is difficulty breathing with the enlarged tonsils and/or adenoids.. Frequent infections of the adenoids can lead to frequent ear infections and collection of fluid in the middle ear that may cause temporary hearing loss. Removal of the adenoids may help some children with chronic earaches accompanied by fluid in the middle ear (called otitis media with effusion).. In adults, the possibility of cancer or a tumor may be another reason for removing the tonsils and adenoids. In some patients, especially those with infectious mononucleosis, severe enlargement may obstruct the airway. For those patients, treatment with steroids (e.g., Prednisone) is sometimes helpful.. ...
Several years ago, operations to remove tonsils and adenoids were very common. These operations are done less commonly these days and the main indications for them being advised are discussed above. As with all operations, there is a risk involved with surgery.. For example, possible complications of surgery include infection, severe bleeding from the sites where the tonsils or adenoids were removed, and anaesthetic reactions. Also, after adenoids are removed, there is a small risk that speech may become nasal. That is, a child may sound as if they are speaking through their nose. This is because after the adenoids are removed, the gap between the back part of the nose cavity and the roof of the mouth may not close properly, as it should do when we talk. If this occurs, it may only be temporary. However, in a small number of cases speech therapy is needed, or even an operation to narrow the gap.. The amount of benefit gained from having tonsils and/or adenoids removed is not clear. It is a ...
Adenoid hypertrophy (or enlarged adenoids) is the unusual growth ("hypertrophy") of the adenoid tonsil first described by the Danish physician Wilhelm Meyer (1824-1895) in Copenhagen in 1868. He described that a long term adenoid hypertrophy will cause an obstruction of the nasal airways. These will lead to a dentofacial growth anomaly that was defined as "adenoid facies" (see long face syndrome). There is very little lymphoid tissue in the nasopharynx of young babies; humans are born without substantial adenoids. The mat of lymphoid tissue called adenoids starts to get sizable during the first year of life. Just how big the adenoids become is quite variable between individual children. Enlarged adenoids can become nearly the size of a ping pong ball and completely block airflow through the nasal passages. Even if enlarged adenoids are not substantial enough to physically block the back of the nose, they can obstruct airflow enough so that breathing through the nose requires an uncomfortable ...

This study compared the aetiology and pathological characteristics of adult and childhood adenoid hypertrophy (AH). Clinical and morphological features and accompanying otolaryngological pathologies were recorded in 40 adults and 23 children undergoing adenoidectomy for obstructive AH. Both AH forms were similar in terms of symptomatology and associated inflammations. There were, however, significant differences in otitis media rate, with effusion and dullness, and retraction in the eardrum both more prevalent in childhood AH. Adult AH was associated with nasal septum deviation in 25.0% of patients. Histopathological features of adenoidal lymphoid tissue were dissimilar in the two groups: numerous lymph follicles with prominent germinal centres was the chief finding in childhood adenoids, whereas adult adenoids showed chronic inflammatory cell infiltration and secondary changes (e.g. squamous metaplasia). These results underline the importance of considering AH as a cause or contributing factor ...

Adenoiditis is an infection of the adenoids. The adenoids are the lymph tissues which are found in the pharynx. The pharynx is located at the back of the nasal area. The main function of adenoids is to aid human body in fighting against various types of infections caused by different agents in the body. In other words, they provide complete protection to the throat. Adenoids work in association with tonsils to fight with infections. But sometimes inflammation or swelling occurs in these tissues and this condition is known as adenoiditis. There are multiple causes for adenoiditis.. Allergies- Some people and especially children are allergic to certain types of foods. When they consume these foods, it leads to soreness in their throat and in turn causes adenoiditis. Apart from this, allergens are present in air as well. When a person who is allergic breathes in this contaminated air, it leads to infections in throat and tonsils. When chief organs i.e. tonsils, which fight against germ infections ...

It is almost certain that your baby has enlarged and infected adenoids with a post-nasal mucous drip. He must be seen by an ENT specialist. If he is snoring this means that his nose is very blocked indeed. He will need to have his adenoids removed, but being so young it will be difficult for the suregon to remove your babys adenoids now. It is essential to clear is nose as best as possible until the operation can be done. I suggest that the ENT surgeon prescibes Flixonase Nasules once daily for a 10 day period to help to open your babys nose until he is old enough for further treatment.. ...
Tonsillitis and adenoiditis (together, called Adenotonsillar Disease) are serious infections that may lead to other serious complications if left untreated. Your doctor may recommend having tonsils and adenoids removed at the same time. Tonsils and adenoids are part of the lymphatic system helping to fight infection. Studies have shown that their removal does not have an effect on the immune system. It is believed these glands are most helpful in the childs first year. Very young children may spend the night in the hospital following a T&A so they can be monitored for breathing difficulties and dehydration. Other patients generally go home the same day as surgery. Recovery follows the recommendations for tonsillectomy and adenoidectomy. A sore throat and slight fever is normal. Patients need to be monitored for fever above 102 degrees and dehydration. ...
Background: Adenoid hypertrophy treatment for children is generally planned in accordance with the degree of airway obstruction and related morbidity. If surgical treatment is indicated, the individual risk/benefit analysis of patients should be assessed in terms of anesthetic and postoperative complications. Although there are few alternative treatment options, these may be considered as a nonsurgical approach in less serious cases. Accordingly, studies about intranasal steroid applications under various protocols have been presented. ...

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 ...
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 ...
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 ...

This is a reprint of a press release published on 24/7 Press Release. Chicago: ADD & ADHD Prevention and Treatment: Sleep Disordered Breathing in Young Children Is a Primary Cause of ADD, ADHD and Bed-Wetting.. Early correction of upper airway problems in young children can frequently prevent development of ADD and ADHD. Sleep Disordered Breathing can be addressed in children as young as two with the Perfect Start System.. There is excellent evidence of the relationship of Sleep Disordered breathing and ADD, ADHD and Bed-Wetting. Sleep Disordered breathing is caused by small constricted airways and blockages from tonsils and adenoids. Children with large tonsils and adenoids frequently have constricted airways as well.. The airways of our children are systematically being destroyed, a fact known to Anthropologists but ignored by the overall medical and dental professional communities. Prior to 400 years ago Dental Malocclusions were virtually non-existent. The crowded teeth and narrow arches ...
I found this site after a google search for "child gaining weight after surgery." My daughter had a inguinal hernia repair when she ws 4 1/2. By the time she turned 5, she had gone from a size 4T clothes, to 6X. She is now 9 and weighs 102 lbs. As a competitive swimmer, she is very active. I, too, have brought this up to her Dr and got "the blow off." Im curious if anesthesia may disrupt metabolism for some people. My MIL had her tonsils out when she was a small child (6yrs old, I think) and gained weight too. She struggled with weight her entire childhood/young adulthood. She also has a thyroid problem. (Since she was 13!!!) I have 2 other children, and when they turned 5 I felt like I was waiting for them to pack on the pounds.....both kids are as thin as can be. My daughters physician has recommended REALLY paying attention to her eating habits/portion size. We are doing that, and will see how it goes.....but I know she didnt start eating any differently the day after she had her hernia ...
Epstein-Barr virus (EBV) has been closely associated with undifferenciated nasopharyngeal carcinoma (NPC) and T/ NK nasal non Hodgkin lymphoma. Nevertheless, the presence of EBV in non neoplastic lymphoid tissue of the nasopharynx has been rarely investigated. In a previous study by our group, using in situ hybridization to detect EBV in adenoids of children (2-13 years old) resected because of nasal obstruction due to hypertrophy, we found EBV genome in 72% of the cases. It was now intended to study the frequency of EBV expression in adenoids from children that underwent surgical removal, belonging to a lower age group (1-2 years old). It was also intended to establish which lymphoid subsets are involved in this infection. Adenoidal paraffin sections from 21 patients aged 1-2 years old (mean 1.6 years), 15 males and six females were submitted to double labeling: in situ hybridization with EBER 1/2 probes to detect EBV and immunohistochemistry to determine the lymphocyte typing of EBV-positive ...

My 6-yr-old daughter (to be 7 on the 21st of this month), has had issues staying asleep through the night since she was a baby. She will sleep for a few hours and then she wakes. It doesnt matter what time she goes to bed. She seems to wake around the same time each night/morning regardless of bedtime - which seems to be between 2:30 - 3:30 am. It seems to be getting worse this year. Now she will wake up and stay up for a couple of hours or more. More often then not she stays in her room and doesnt make a sound so I dont know shes awake. However, when she does make it known shes awake she is put back to bed. I will put on her classical music CDs on a low volume & that helps sometimes but not always. I talked with our Dr about this and she hasnt made any useful suggestions. I saw someone mentioned adenoids - my daughter had her tonsils & adenoids & tubes put in her ears last September.This sleeping issue IS an issue during school days. She HAS fallen asleep in class. She is very grumpy and ...

Adenoiditis is the inflammation of the adenoid tissue, usually caused by an infection. Adenoiditis is treated using medication (antibiotics and/or steroids) or surgical intervention. Adenoiditis may produce cold-like symptoms. However, adenoiditis symptoms often persist for ten or more days, and often include pus-like discharge from nose. The infection cause is usually viral. However, if the adenoiditis is caused by a bacterial infection, antibiotics may be prescribed for treatment. A steroidal nasal spray may also be prescribed in order to reduce nasal congestion. Severe or recurring adenoiditis may require surgical removal of the adenoids (adenotonsillectomy). Acute adenoiditis is characterized by fever, runny nose, nasal airway obstruction resulting in predominantly oral breathing, snoring and sleep apnea, Rhinorrhea with serous secretion in viral forms and mucous-purulent secretion in bacterial forms. In cases due to viral infection symptoms usually recede spontaneously after 48 hours, ...
and corpulmonale that requires surgical intervention, less obstruction can have some problem for children that needs non-invasive procedures Methods: This controlled clinical trial study included thirty children 5 to 12 years old exhibiting obstructive nasal symptoms. During one month, treatment group received two sprays in each nostril twice daily [336 wg/day] Results: After 4week period, studied gronp showed significant improvent in airway size, compared with controlled group [p= 0.05 vs p = 0.3] . Although adenoidal size decreased in the treatment group [mean 6%], this was not significant. Also, hearing improvement was significant in treatment group [p = 0.02] with no improvement in controlled group. Among five symptoms nasal congestion, rhinolallia, snoring, day time somnolence and restless sleep, significant improvement was seen in three: nasal congestion [p = 0.01] snoring [p = 0.001] and restless sleep [p = 0.04] . Rhinolallia and daytime somnolence were partially improved Conclusion: ...

Among several clinical problems of obese patients 2,17, the six most frequent co-morbidities of interest to anesthesiologists are SAH, osteoarthritis, obstructive sleep apnea syndrome (OSAS), gastroesophageal reflux (GER), diabetes mellitus (DM) and asthma in decreasing order of frequency 12,20-26. These six disorders were also highly prevalent in our study, however OSAS was only the 5th most common problem. This might have been due to diagnostics missed during preoperative evaluation. OSAS in general population varies from 4% to 10% 27 and the result of 10% in our obese population is low, since obesity is a major risk factor for OSAS. Symptoms to be investigated in patients with suspicion of OSAS are snores, micro-emergences, sleep fragmentation, daily sleepiness, fatigue, lethargy, depression, morning headache, impotency and enuresis. These are most frequently found in patients with obesity, nasal obstruction, tonsils hypertrophy or adenoids, Pierre-Robin syndrome, Down syndrome, ...

The CT scans and MRI images above are dated from spring of 2014. I dont understand why it took them so long to operate, or why theyre operating now using two-year-old images as a guide. In the meantime, this patient has had to live with a tumor the size of a tennis ball on his forehead. His eye was bulging out of his head and it was hard for him to blink properly.. When the operation was over, the surgeons suspected that this was actually a cancer tumor rather than a fungal infection. It wasnt clear exactly what this mans prognosis was, not at least until the pathology lab examined the samples of his tumor. But hes at least temporarily relieved of the massive tumor that once occupied his forehead and sinuses.. Based on the days schedule, I inferred that about half of ENT surgeries consist of removing the tonsils of young children. The case preceding the tumor was an adenotonsillectomy (removal of both the tonsils and the adenoids), as was the case afterwards. We were asked to stay further ...
Hi there. I have a 3 year old son who for the past 2 years or so has had unusually large tonsils. I have seen and read several cases where this is considered "normal" for children his age, but Im a little concerned. I took him in to see his pediatrician just before he turned 2 and she referred me to an Ear, Nose, & Throat specialist. For the past year and a half weve been monitoring the growth of my sons tonsils. At first when the ENT saw my son he was surprised to see how large my sons tonsils were, but he wanted to wait and see if my son would "grow into them." I thought this was a little strange, but at the same time, my son never complains about his throat hurting. Well, a year later my sons tonsils have not shrunk, in fact they are larger and touch and his adenoids are just as bad. Hes been scheduled to have a T & A in mid-June. Also about a month ago I noticed that his lymph nodes on the sides of his neck just below his jaw were swollen. Several friends and family members have ...
Forty--five percent of normal adults snore at least occasionally, and 25 percent are habitual snorers. According to the Journal of American Medical Association (JAMA), snorers have three times as many motor vehicle accidents as non-snorers. Problem snoring is more frequent in males and overweight persons and it usually grows worse with age. Snoring sounds are caused when there is an obstruction to the free flow of air through the passages at the back of the mouth and nose. There are patients whose snoring has decibel levels as loud as jet engines and even some who have had neighbors in the apartment or even the house next door call the police to complain about the noise.. Obstructive Sleep Apnea - Obstructive Sleep Apnea, or OSA, occurs when the airway becomes blocked due to a collapse of the soft tissue in the back of the throat and tongue, or enlarged tissue in the tonsils and adenoids. When the patients airway becomes blocked, they are not able to take a breath. Because the brain and heart ...
Surgery can help improve symptoms in some sleep apnea cases. Sleep apnea surgery may focus on the soft palate, uvula, tonsils, adenoids or tongue.
December 22, 2017. Infants born preterm have significantly lower nasopharyngeal and oropharyngeal volumes, compared with newborn peers carried to full term, and those lower airway volumes are independent of the infants gender, ethnicity or weight, according to a study published online Dec. 16, 2017 in Clinical Imaging.. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, 1 in 10 babies born in the United States is preterm, or born prior to the 37th gestational week. Premature birth leaves these children more susceptible to disordered breathing while sleeping, including obstructive sleep apnea (OSA), an ailment characterized by increased upper-airway resistance that narrows airways.. "In addition to finding some airway volumes were smaller in preterm infants, our results indicated both sets of newborns had similar hypopharyngeal volumes. This suggests that risk factors that lead to OSA are confined to the uppermost airway and do not appear to be explained by enlarged adenoids and ...

Choking is the inability to breathe because of blockage in the airway. The air is not able to the lungs reach the lungs when a person is choking. In such cases even death can occur if airways cannot be cleared. If the person chokes recurrently while asleep, the person may have sleep apnea. Choking when sleeping: Sleep apnea is a grave sleep disorder which is caused by enlarged tonsils and adenoids that blocks the upper airway passages at nighttime while sleeping, making it very difficult to breathe. When muscles of the throat relax during nighttime in your child, these oversized glands can momentarily put off air from getting into the lungs. Sleep apnea increases at the age of three to six. Choking is a very common problem in obese people and with the people who sleep on their backs. Person who smokes heavily, or is a heavy alcoholic and have lung diseases can narrow airway and throat and increase the risk of choking during sleep. Due to the frequent awakenings at night, daytime drowsiness ...
In severe cases, your physician may recommend removal of throat tissues, such as the soft palate, tonsils and adenoids, to enlarge your airway opening. While this may be your best treatment option, we urge patients to consider a) the risks inherent in surgery of any type, b) the long-term prognosis since removed tissues can grow back, and c) the availability of non-surgical therapies.. Please note: Whether or not you have OSA is best confirmed by a referral from your physician to an overnight sleep lab for a diagnostic polysomnographic study. We are happy to provide the names of sleep medicine physicians as well as sleep labs that we work with, upon request.. ...
OSA occurs in about two percent of young children. It can develop in children at any age, but it is most common in preschoolers. OSA often occurs between the ages of 3 and 6 years when the tonsils and adenoids are large compared to the throat. OSA appears to occur at the same rate in young boys and girls. How often it occurs in infants and teens is unknown. OSA also is common in children who are obese.
Good luck! Bubba had his tonsils and adenoids out (and 3rd eye surgery) at 4 1/2. His tonsils touched eachother but when he got sick, they completely obstructed his airway. We used Nasonex nasal spray from 18 months to 4 years to buy some time before surgery. When he had the surgery (he was having apnea too), we fought for him to be hospitalized overnight (it is an outpatient procedure) because we were so scared about complications and the fact that he was energetic, willful, strong, and refused medications at all costs. (It took 4 adults to restrain him to get the pain medication in him...and I was clocked by the IV block more times than I could count.) But after that night, he was completely himself and in no pain ...
My oldest son needed to have his adenoids out & tubes inserted when he was about 18 months old, then his tonsils had to go at 2 1/2 years. Though the surgery was a breeze, the recovery is not easy - but SO worth it. With the first surgery, we could tell that he felt immensely better the next day. When he had the tonsils done, it took a little longer, but not much ...

I want to start off by saying my husband has not yet been officially diagnosed with lymphoma. That being said, two and a half weeks ago an oncologist from Mayo clinic told us, "Im 90% positive you have lymphoma." This was following a PET scan which revealed high (SUV 9.8) metabolic activity in the right axilla, retro perneium, and nasopharynx. He also showed two areas on his spleen accompanied by mild splenomegaly. His largest node is 2.3cm right now. Reading the PET scan report was sobering . There were several lymph nodes identified as "reactive" Including his adenoids, tonsils, and a few in his abdomen. When asked what type of lymphoma was suspected the Dr told us he suspected mantle cell. All I really remember from that point on is hearing "stage 3-4" "aggressive" "can live for several years" "double-dose chemo and stem cell transplant" .. My husband also has known lymphoid hyperplasia diffuse throughout his colon and a long history (20 years) of stomach pain. We were pursuing his stomach ...
No quick fix offered, but were going to try Nasonex for a month and see what happens. The good news is that his right ear didnt appear to be infected anymore so at least thats taken care of (though we have to finish this round of antibiotics). He couldnt see into his left ear very well, but that wasnt the one infected last week anyway. This doc commented on how small his little nasal passages were and that his tonsils were inflamed. He didnt bother scoping to check his adenoids because it wouldnt change his course of action, which is to try the Nasonex. If this doesnt help his congestion after a month (A MONTH???), then well have to see an ENT in Milwaukee to discuss surgery options. If things are still bad in another week or two, though, he might also add another steroid treatment to help with the inflamation. Another consideration is sleep apnea so he wants me to watch him sleeping (LOL... maybe the week after next when Im up feeding his baby brother in his room ...
The Medical Profession also took an interest in the Hopewood children with Sir Lorimer Dodds and Dr D. Clements, Head of Child Nutrition at Sydney University, monitoring their health for over 9 years. They examined both tonsils and adenoids and said they had never seen a group so free of trouble as the Hopewood children. Also, child psychologist, Zoe Benjamin, an expert of the day, spent time with the Hopewood children and expressed amazement at their independent personalities and contentment as a group. Most remarkable of all was the fact that many of these children inherited poor health due to a history of illness and malnourishment in their mothers. Despite this, and the fact that they were never breastfed nor could enjoy the normal bonding of mother to child, they were able to grow into sturdy, self-reliant children. The Hopewood children serve as an inspiring example for all those parents who would like to raise their children naturally, and without drugs and vaccines. These children are ...

Things have been a tad hectic here lately, thus the delays in any posts. Last week Maddie had her tonsils and adenoids removed, new tubes put in her ears and her nasal turbinates shaved down. The goal here was to help her breath better and hopefully help with her snoring and sleep. She has always been a restless sleeper and always seemed tired. We are hoping this surgery will be the fix we have been looking for. The surgery in itself was easy and over within an hour. The recovery has been more than I ever anticipated. I knew she would be in pain, I knew it would be hard to watch and I knew it would take at least two weeks for her to heal. What I did not know, was the extreme pain she would be in. That she wouldnt have much of an ability to eat anything, (lately she has started to eat pretzels and will only drink water and chocolate milk from McDonalds...at least she is eating) I didnt realize how much weight she would lose. She initially lost 4-5 pounds, but has put 3 of those pounds back on ...
My lg is now 2.7 years old. We have always battled with upper respitory infections especially since last year Julywhen she started chreche.

I have a daughter nearly three years. And we have long been problems with sleeping. We tried a few things, but to no avail so far. Now she recently helped her adenoids. We thought this could be another reason, but this has not helped. They often wake up or go to sleep, but it does not seem really normal that they so often wakes. In the morning she often asked awake; at around 6:00 pm. And she can not even really quiet yet come lie with me. She was immediately very busy (Jump / roll / run).

Breathe through the nose not the mouth. The nasal passage is longer than the other route and is equipped with up-to-date machinery for preparing the air for the lungs. So use the nose for the purpose nature intended it. Keep the nose clean and free from all obstruction.

Clogged nostrils could be a big impediment for patients. Patients then tend to breathe through the mouth which cause irritations, drying out, inflammation of the mucous membrane and of course snoring. Causes may include: Nasal concha hyperplasia (enlarged nasal concha), septum deviation, polyps, adenoids in adults, allergies or chronic sinusitis.. The main cause however, is an enlarged nasal concha.

Based on the doctor appointments weve had we can definitely say shes had fluid in her ears for at least the past month, but since she had an ear infection in November and one in December it could be much longer. Maybe the surgery will help her hearing (fingers crossed). Were not super psyched about another surgery day, but this is supposed to be an easier procedure and recovery that the adenoids were. You can find more info here about ear tube surgery ...

Patrick had an appointment with an ENT today. We have been a bit concerned about his hearing lately. At 21 months, he is still not talking very much. He used to sing songs but he has stopped doing that as well. The doctor cleaned out his ears, which were blocked completely by wax. He was very cooperative during this procedure. One of his tubes is out now and the other one is nearly out. He is still having fluid problems and we think he will need a second set of tubes soon. His adenoids are also inflamed, which is expected given his ear situation. The ENT also "popped" his ears (like we would do on an airplane). After his appointment, he started babbling and was loud the entire way home. He kept saying things and seemed much happier ...
Alexis had her second set of tubes put in her ears yesterday. We found out that her adenoids were still there, even though the first surgery was supposed to remove them. Much better service at Mary Bridge. We arrived at 8am and they took us right back. Took all her vitals and got her changed into a hospital gown, pants and socks. They gave her a pink pig stuffy and had a coloring book and crayons for her. Then they wheeled her in her bed to the surgery waiting area and the anesthesiologist came and talked to us. We gave her a kiss and she was taken to the OR. In all this took maybe an hour. Last time around we got there at 10:30 and they didnt take her in until after 2. We waited, just hoping that she would wake up without the screaming and crying. She didnt cry. They wheeled her out and she was laying there hugging her new pig. She wanted to watch a movie the second we got in her room and would cry anytime a nurse got in her way. She got a blue Popsicle, apple juice and red jello. While they ...
Hi, Im new to the board. What brought me here is my 8 year old son who has had a host of problems since birth. At age two he had his adenoids removed due to frequent sinus and ear infections. He apparently has the classic atopic march going on, with eczema since birth, now seasonal allergies (grass and trees), and asthma. I was unsure about the diagnosis of asthma, since he never has issues in the middle of the night, just first thing in the morning unless he is having a flare due to sickness or allergies, and his cough sounds like croup during a flare. He was put on QVAR last year during grass season, and it took a couple weeks to start working. His specialist then didnt believe in peak flow meters, so when he coughed I would automatically give him Pro-Air which didnt seem to help. She also never tested him for seasonal allergies, but assumed grass since he was having a nasty flare during grass season. Fast forward to a couple weeks ago, I took him to a new specialist who gave us a peak flow ...
