Effects of anticholinergics on postoperative vomiting, recovery, and hospital stay in children undergoing tonsillectomy with or without adenoidectomy. (1/308)

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)

Acupressure-acupuncture antiemetic prophylaxis in children undergoing tonsillectomy. (2/308)

BACKGROUND: Acupuncture or acupressure at the Nei-Guan (P.6) point on the wrist produces antiemetic effects in awake but not anesthetized patients. The authors studied whether a combined approach using preoperative acupressure and intra- and postoperative acupuncture can prevent emesis following tonsillectomy in children. METHODS: Patients 2-12 yr of age were randomly assigned to study or placebo groups. Two Acubands with (study) and two without (placebo) spherical beads were applied bilaterally on the P.6 points; non-bead- and bead-containing Acubands, respectively, were applied on the sham points. All Acubands were applied before any drug administration. After anesthetic induction, acupuncture needles were substituted for the beads and remained in situ until the next day. All points were covered with opaque tape to prevent study group identification. A uniform anesthetic technique was used; postoperative pain was managed initially with morphine and later with acetaminophen and codeine. Emesis, defined as retching or vomiting, was assessed postoperatively. Ondansetron was administered only after two emetic episodes at least 2 min apart. Droperidol was added if emesis persisted. RESULTS: One hundred patients were enrolled in the study. There were no differences in age, weight, follow-up duration, or perioperative opioid administration between groups. Retching occurred in 26% of the study patients and in 28% of the placebo patients; 51 and 55%, respectively, vomited; and 60 and 59%, respectively, did either. There were no significant differences between the groups. Redness occurred in 8.5% of acupuncture sites. CONCLUSION: Perioperative acupressure and acupuncture did not diminish emesis in children following tonsillectomy.  (+info)

Ketoprofen, diclofenac or ketorolac for pain after tonsillectomy in adults? (3/308)

We have compared the analgesic and opioid sparing effect of three i.v. non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs with placebo in a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled study in 80 adult patients after elective tonsillectomy. A standard anaesthetic was used. After induction of anaesthesia, patients received ketoprofen 100 mg, diclofenac 75 mg or ketorolac 30 mg by i.v. infusion over 30 min. Patients in the placebo group received saline. Ketoprofen and diclofenac infusions were repeated after 12 h and ketorolac infusion at 6 h and 12 h. Oxycodone was used as rescue analgesic. Patients in the ketoprofen group requested 32% less opioid and patients in the diclofenac and ketorolac groups 42% less opioid than those in the placebo group (P < 0.05). There were one, two and six patients in the placebo, diclofenac and ketorolac groups, respectively, but none in the ketoprofen group, who did not request opioid analgesia during the study (P < 0.05, ketorolac vs placebo and ketoprofen). Visual analogue pain scores were similar in all groups. Visual analogue satisfaction scores were significantly higher in the diclofenac group compared with the placebo group. The incidence of nausea was 44-54%. There were no differences in the incidence of other adverse reactions. We conclude that all three non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs were superior to placebo after tonsillectomy.  (+info)

The effect of age and natural priming on the IgG and IgA subclass responses after parenteral influenza vaccination. (4/308)

This study investigated the effect of natural priming and age on serum IgG and IgA subclass responses after parenteral trivalent influenza vaccination. Sera from 18 young children and 8 adults were collected at various times after vaccination. An ELISA was performed to quantify the concentrations of antibody subclasses. The children were divided into primed and unprimed groups based on the presence of prevaccination serum antibodies. In both children and adults, IgG1 and IgA1 were the predominant IgG and IgA subclasses detected after vaccination. No IgG2 responses were detected in sera of unprimed children, and the proportion of the IgG2 response was lower in primed children than in adults. This suggests that the IgG2 immune response in young children is dependent on previous priming and may mature later than the other IgG subclasses after parenteral influenza vaccination.  (+info)

Suspected recurrence of malignant hyperthermia after post-extubation shivering in the intensive care unit, 18 h after tonsillectomy. (5/308)

A 25-yr-old man, subsequently shown to be malignant hyperthermia (MH) susceptible by in vitro contracture testing, developed MH during anaesthesia for tonsillectomy. Prompt treatment, including dantrolene, led to rapid resolution of the metabolic crisis. Eighteen hours later the patient's trachea was extubated in the ICU, when he had been stable and apyrexial overnight. Twenty minutes after extubation, an episode of shivering was followed by the onset of tachycardia, hypertension, tachypnoea and a rapid increase in temperature. Recurrence of MH was suspected and the patient was given another dose of dantrolene with good clinical effect. Shivering in this patient may have been an indicator or a causative factor of recurrence of MH.  (+info)

Changes in electroencephalogram and autonomic cardiovascular activity during induction of anesthesia with sevoflurane compared with halothane in children. (6/308)

BACKGROUND: This study was design to assess clinical agitation, electroencephalogram (EEG) and autonomic cardiovascular activity changes in children during induction of anesthesia with sevoflurane compared with halothane using noninvasive recording of EEG, heart rate, and finger blood pressure. METHODS: Children aged 2-12 yr premedicated with midazolam were randomly assigned to one of three induction techniques: 7% sevoflurane in 100% O2 (group SevoRAPID); 2%, 4%, 6%, and 7% sevoflurane in 100% O2 (group SevoINCR); or 1%, 2%, 3%, and 3.5% halothane in 50% N2O-50% O2 (group HaloN2O). An additional group of children who received 7% sevoflurane in 50% N2O-50% O2 (group SevoN2O) was enrolled after completion of the study. Induction was videotaped. EEG, heart rate, and finger blood pressure were continuously recorded during induction until 5 min after tracheal intubation and analyzed in frequency domain using spectral analysis. RESULTS: Agitation was more frequent when anesthesia was induced with 100% O2 compared to the mixture of oxygen and nitrous oxide. No seizures were recorded in any group. In the four groups, induction of anesthesia was associated with an increase in EEG total spectral power and a shift toward the low-frequency bands. Sharp slow waves were present on EEG tracings of the three sevoflurane groups, whereas slow waves and fast rhythms (spindles) were observed in the halothane group. Sevoflurane induced a greater withdrawal of parasympathetic activity than halothane and a transient relative increase in sympathetic vascular tone at loss of eyelash reflex. CONCLUSIONS: Agitation observed during sevoflurane induction was not associated with seizures. Sevoflurane induction induced a marked inhibition of parasympathetic control of heart rate.  (+info)

Double-blind comparison of sevofluran vs propofol and succinylcholine for tracheal intubation in children. (7/308)

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 ketamine and morphine for analgesia after tonsillectomy in children. (8/308)

In a double blind study we compared the effects of i.m. ketamine with morphine on postoperative analgesia in children undergoing tonsillectomy. Eighty children (aged 6-15 yr) were randomized to receive either i.m. morphine 0.1-0.15 mg kg-1 or ketamine 0.5-0.6 mg kg-1, after induction of a standard general anaesthetic. Pain scores 30 min after extubation were higher (P < 0.05) in the ketamine group, but were similar thereafter to the morphine group. Mean (SD) times to recovery from anaesthesia were 20.1 (SD 6.5) min in the ketamine group compared to 14.2 (5.6) min in the morphine group (P < 0.01). There were no differences in supplemental analgesia requirements, or the incidence of vomiting or dreaming between the groups. We conclude that ketamine 0.5 mg kg-1 i.m. may be an alternative analgesic for children undergoing tonsillectomy.  (+info)

We included 19 studies (1756 participants). We selected only randomized, placebo-controlled, double-blinded studies to minimize inclusion of poor quality studies. However, the risk of bias in the included studies was not formally assessed. Children receiving a single intraoperative dose of dexamethasone (dose range = 0.15 to 1.0 mg/kg) were half as likely to vomit in the first 24 hours compared to children receiving placebo (risk ratio (RR) 0.49; 95% confidence interval (CI) 0.41 to 0.58; P , 0.00001). Routine use in five children would be expected to result in one less patient experiencing post-tonsillectomy emesis (risk difference (RD) -0.24; 95% CI -0.32 to -0.15; P , 0.00001). Children receiving dexamethasone were also more likely to advance to a soft/solid diet on post-tonsillectomy day one (RR 1.45; 95% CI 1.15 to 1.83; P = 0.001) than those receiving placebo. Finally, postoperative pain was improved in children receiving dexamethasone as measured by a visual analog scale (VAS, 0 to 10) ...

The rate of secondary haemorrhage being reported in this study (2.8%) reflects the number of patients who experienced bleeding that concerned them enough to seek medical attention. These patients presented themselves back to the ward after being discharged and it is departmental policy to admit patients with secondary haemorrhage for observation. Most of the cases resolved with conservative measures and did not require any active surgical intervention. By comparison, most published incidences of post-tonsillectomy haemorrhage include only those patients who had enough bleeding to require active surgical intervention. This incidence ranges from 0.09 to 3%5,6,7,8. In our study, the incidence of post-tonsillectomy haemorrhage requiring a return to the operating theatre is 0.6%.. As reported in other studies9,10, most of the patients in our study with post-tonsillectomy haemorrhage are male (63.4%). Bleeding was more common in teenagers, with an average age of 15 compared to an average age of 7 ...
A new study has found that the risk of complications following tonsillectomy is higher among children who come from lower income families.
A two-year-old child experienced concealed haemorrhage after adenotonsillectomy. In our patient, the absence of vomited or significant gastric blood and the presence of melaena stools may partly be attributed to prophylactic antiemetic treatment with tropisetron. This group of patients has a high incidence of postoperative nausea and vomiting, and antiemetic treatment is important and valuable. Rather than advocating the withholding of prophylactic antiemetic treatment, we suggest that whatever medication and techniques are used, good clinical care is dependent on careful postoperative observation and assessment for an appropriate period of time.

For many years, otolaryngologists were reluctant to use nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) after tonsillectomy for fear of platelet inhibition and postsurgical hemorrhage. In 2010, a Cochrane review update was published that found that NSAIDs (other than aspirin and cyclooxygenase-2 [COX-2] inhibitors) did not significantly alter postoperative bleeding compared with placebo or other analgesics.7 The updated review analyzed data from 15 randomized, controlled trials that included more than 1,000 children. Based on this evidence, the 2011 American Academy of Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery (AAO-HNS) Clinical Practice Guideline on Tonsillectomy in Children states that ibuprofen can be used safely for pain control after adenotonsillar surgery.7 The usual recommended dosing for ibuprofen is 10 mg/kg by mouth every 6 hours in healthy children (no renal dysfunction) after tonsillectomy.6. A recent pediatric study by Liu and Ulualp advised that alternating doses of ibuprofen and ...

Yet despite those tendencies, which put the child at an increased risk for similar breathing problems after the surgery, the doctor didnt ask the pediatric nursing staff at the hospital to monitor the babys breathing and overall condition on a more frequent basis while the child after the operation, the story said.

Children exposed to indoor coal-burning stoves and/or second-hand tobacco smoke are more likely to suffer postoperative complications and excessive pain after tonsillectomy.
Reducing opioid prescribing to children after tonsillectomy may be possible without increasing risk of complications, according to a new study.
Introduction: Management of pain in children is often inadequate and numerous clinical practice guidelines and policy statements have been published on the subject of pediatric pain. Tonsillectomy is among the most frequent otorhinolaryngologic surgeries, especially in the pediatric age group and after tonsillectomy the patients usually suffer from mild to severe pain for three postoperative days which may limit activity level and intake, leading to dehydration and a prolonged hospital stay. In this study acetaminophen, acetaminophen codeine and ibuprofen have been compared in a single study. Materials and Methods: A randomized, prospective, double-blind study was conducted at the Tabriz pediatric hospital. Patients were selected randomly from the hospitalized patients undergoing tonsillectomy suffering from recurrent tonsillitis or adenotonsillar hypertrophy and assigned to one of three groups (acetaminophen (ACT)-acetaminophen codeine (ACT/C)-ibuprofen (IBU) according to a predetermined ...

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%. Our meta-analysis shows that randomised trials comparing adenotonsillectomy versus watchful waiting or tonsillectomy alone versus watchful ...
Chronic tonsillitis is a disease of the upper respiratory tract characterized by a prolonged inflammatory process of the tonsils. The cause of chronic tonsillitis often becomes ineffective or incomplete treatment of acute tonsillitis (angina). A long-term decrease in local immunity leads to the formation of foci of inflammation of the glands, in which pathogenic organisms are activated at the beginning of the exacerbation of the disease. Chronic tonsillitis is primarily dangerous for its complications associated with the spread of infection throughout the body. According to statistics, chronic tonsillitis affects up to 15% of the population. Of 200 infertile women, 120 have chronic tonsillitis.In Tashkent clinic Gatling-med, thorough diagnosis and treatment of both chronic and acute tonsillitis is carried out according to modern standards, taking into account the individual characteristics of each patient.

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 ...
Peritonsillar abscess remains the most common deep infection of the head and neck. The condition occurs primarily in young adults, most often during November to December and April to May, coinciding with the highest incidence of streptococcal pharyngitis and exudative tonsillitis. A peritonsillar abscess is a polymicrobial infection, but Group A streptococcus is the predominate organism. Symptoms generally include fever, malaise, sore throat, dysphagia, and otalgia. Physical findings may include trismus and a muffled voice (also called
The aim was to establish the clinical course of patients admitted with a peritonsillar abscess and to evaluate the effectiveness of ambulatory management. A two cycle audit was completed over a nine month period. Retrospective data was collected on all patients admitted with a confirmed peritonsillar abscess. Data collected included basic patient demographics, duration of admission, medications prescribed and volume of aspirate obtained. Duration of admission was noted to be short (mean = 1.35 nights) and from this an ambulatory quinsy protocol was initiated. Prospective data was collected to evaluate effectiveness, which was judged according to patient response at follow up (telephone consultation) and readmission/aspiration rate. Twenty three patients were identified over a six month period within the prospective cycle (n=23). Of these, seventy percent (n=16) were eligible for day case management. Exclusion criteria included sepsis, respiratory distress and persistent dysphagia following ...

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.
