Does adenotonsillectomy decrease asthma attacks in children? EVIDENCE-BASED ANSWER: In children with asthma, adenotonsillectomy is associated with 30% fewer asthma exacerbations, less status asthmaticus, and fewer emergency room (ER)/ urgent care visits and hospitalizations. Additionally, adenotonsillectomy is associated with improved asthma control test (ACT) scores and less asthma medication use (SOR: B, pre-post cohort and case-control studies).
