Predictors of tonsillectomy after previous adenoidectomy for upper airway obstruction [abstract]
Metadata[+] Show full item record
One of the main indications for adenotonsillectomy in children is upper airway obstruction, including obstructive sleep apnea. Previous research has suggested an increased risk for requiring subsequent tonsillectomy when adenoidectomy alone is performed for upper airway obstruction. The purpose of this study is to further characterize potential risk factors for subsequent tonsillectomy in pediatric patients undergoing adenoidectomy for upper airway obstruction.
