Przebieg zabiegu

Adenotonsillectomy is usually performed under general anaesthesia. The patient sleeps during surgery. This is the preferred form of anaesthesia, because of reduced stress associated with the operating room and medical staff. Full anaesthesia also minimizes patient movements during the procedure. The adenoid hypertrophy is removed by means of a special tool inserted in nasopharynx. The resulting wound bleeds slightly and does not require any stitching. The palatal tonsils are merely cut (not completely removed). This treatment involves a reduction in their mass of about 30-60 %. The operation can be performed by various types of laser (CO2, diode), techniques of radiophthal diathermy.
