74 ABSTRACT Objectives: Adenoid hypertrophy is known as the most common cause of nasal obstruction in children; thus, adenoidectomy is one of the most commonly performed surgical procedures in the pediatric population. We performed both conventional and endoscopic-assisted adenoidectomies in 54 patients. Our objectives were to compare the efficacy of both methods in terms of subjective and objective relief of symptoms, safety, recurrence, and postoperative morbidity. 
Background: Adenoidectomy is among one of the commonest operation performed all over the world. Most commonly used procedure is conventional curette adenoidectomy. Numerous methods had been developedExpand
Trans-Oral Endoscopic Radio Frequency Adenoidectomy vs. Mirror Mono-Polar Adenoidectomy in Children: A Comparative Study
This study in children to evaluate and compare the efficacy and safety of two methods of adenoidectomy, trans-oral endoscopic adenoidalectomy (TEA) using bipolar radiofrequency suction diathermy versus transoral mirror adenoidsectomy (TMA) using monopolar suctiondiathermy. Expand


Adenoidectomy: Selection Criteria for Surgical Cases of Otitis Media
Whether abutment of adenoids laterally against the torus tubaris affects the outcome of patients requiring pressure equalization tubes (PET) for OM is determined. Expand
A combined method of conventional and endoscopic adenoidectomy
Using this technique, adenoid tissue can be removed completely without damage to other structures and the patency of the nasopharynx and the orifice of the eustachian tube can be established. Expand
Pediatric Endoscopic Transnasal Adenoid Ablation
This procedure has proved to be both effective and convenient during other transnasal endoscopic procedures, as it provides excellent visualization of both the superior and inferior parts of the nasopharynx and results in minimal to no bleeding in the adenoid bed. Expand

Adenoidectomy: indirect visualization of choanal adenoids.
A subgroup of 31 patients (9.4%) was identified as having adenoid tissue extending from the nasopharynx into the choanae and posterior nasal cavity: "choanal adenoids," and the characteristics of this subgroup are outlined in the hope that features may be useful in identifying potential choanaladenoids preoperatively.

Pediatric Adenoidectomy Under Vision Using Suction‐Diathermy Ablation
Objectives To compare adenoidectomy using suction‐diathermy ablation with adenoidectomy by way of curettage in a pediatric tertiary care setting.
A combined method of transoral and transnasal endoscopic adenoidectomy
The combined method of a transoral 70 and transnasal 0 or 30 endoscopic approach offered a clear and stable operative field and has the potential to become the procedure of choice for adenoidectomy. Expand
Outpatient adenotonsillectomy. Is it safe in children younger than 3 years?
The safety of ambulatory adenotonsillectomy depends on judicious selection criteria and can be performed in children younger than 3 years. Expand
