Objectives/Hypothesis: Coblation tonsillectomy is a recently introduced surgical technique. To measure its benefits against traditional tonsillectomy techniques, it is necessary to compare their complication rates. The study aims to identify differences in reactionary and secondary hemorrhage proportions, comparing coblation with dissection tonsillectomy. Study Design: Prospective observational cohort study. Methods: Hates of reactionary and delayed postoperative hemorrhage were measured… Expand
Coblation versus dissection tonsillectomy in children
TLDR
Coblation tonsillectomy is a safe procedure with significantly less intraoperative time and less blood loss and better surgical wound healing with similar postoperative pain in comparison with dissection tonsilLECTomy. Expand
Coblation Tonsillectomy Versus Blunt Dissectomy Tonsillectomy in Children
TLDR
Coblation tonsillectectomy offers less operative time, minimum blood loss, less post operative pain, early return to normal diet and rapid healing of tonsillar fossa. Expand
No clinical advantages of coblation tonsillectomy compared with traditional tonsillectomy.
TLDR
The overall results of this study suggest that neither coblation tonsillectomy nor traditional tonsilLECTomy enjoys an advantage over the other in patients aged 14-40 years. Expand
Coblation Versus Conventional Tonsillectomy: A Double Blind Randomized Controlled Trial
TLDR
Coblation tonsillectomy offers significant advantages over dissection method with less operative time, decreased intraoperative blood loss, early restoration of daily activities and normal diet, however coblation tonsilelectomy is associated with a higher incidence of secondary hemorrhage. Expand
Traditional and Coblation Tonsillectomy in Pediatrics Population: A Comparative Study
TLDR
It is concluded that coblation tonsillectomy takes less operating time with less blood loss, also associated with less post-operative pain, less time taken to achieve normal diet and activities. Expand
Comparison of three tonsillectomy techniques in children
TLDR
Harmonic scalpel tonsillectomy is associated with a shorter operating time and lower intraoper bleeding rates and similar postoperative pain score and postoperative bleeding rates compared with coblation tonsillectedomy and cold dissection tonsilLECTomy. Expand

The objective of this study was to compare theintraoperative time, intraoperative blood loss and post operative pain between coblation tonsillectomy and cold tonsillectomy in the same patient. AExpand
Coblation vs. Electrocautery Tonsillectomy: A Prospective Randomized Study Comparing Clinical Outcomes in Adolescents and Adults
TLDR
This prospective study compared intraoperative records and postoperative clinical outcomes in adolescents and adults following coblation and electrocautery tonsillectomies and found a tendency towards reduced pain and otalgia in the coblation group. Expand
Coblation versus Traditional Tonsillectomy: A Double Blind Randomized Controlled Trial
TLDR
The new technique using tissue coblation for tonsil dissection offers significant advantages in the operation time compared with dissection tonsillectomy, and is associated with early return to daily activities. Expand
A comparative study between coblation and bipolar electrocautery tonsillectomy in children
TLDR
Bipolar electrocautery tonsillectomy offers the same operative speed, less intraoperative blood loss, more postoperative pain scores when compared with coblation tonsillection, and is associated with lower mean pain score. Expand

TLDR
This new technique using tissue coblation for tonsil removal offers significant advantages in the post-operative period, with rapid return to a normal diet and a drastic reduction in analgesic requirements following the surgery. Expand
Microscopic tonsillectomy: a double-blind randomized trial.
TLDR
This technique combines the hemostatic advantage of cautery dissection, the excellent visualization achieved by a microscope, and, with the use of a video, greatly improves the physician's ability to teach how to perform a tonsillitis. Expand
A comparison of microbipolar cautery dissection to hot knife and cold knife cautery tonsillectomy.
TLDR
Important clinical outcome differences included a lower bleed rate, earlier recovery and fewer days lost from work and school and the financial impact is estimated to be quite favorable. Expand
Post-Tonsillectomy Hemorrhage: Results of a 3-Month Follow-Up
TLDR
It is believed that a postoperative follow-up period of 10 days is sufficient to identify all but the most rare cases of post-tonsillectomy hemorrhage. Expand
Traditional tonsillectomy compared with bipolar radiofrequency thermal ablation tonsillectomy in adults: a pilot study.
TLDR
Bipolar radiofrequency thermal ablation and traditional tonsillectomy were associated with similar postoperative morbidity and there was a statistically significant but clinically insignificant difference in operating time and intraoperative blood loss in favor of the traditional tonsilelectomy group. Expand
Coblation tonsillectomy: a double blind randomized controlled study
TLDR
A significant reduction in post-operative pain and more rapid healing of the tonsillar fossae were found in the side removed by tissue coblation, and this new technique for tonsil removal warrants further study. Expand
Ultrasonic tonsillectomy.
TLDR
Ulasonic tonsillectomy appears to be a safe, and possibly a superior, method of performing this common operation and may be less postoperative pain, although this could not be shown statistically in this retrospective study. Expand
Comparative audit of tonsillectomy.
TLDR
An audit of tonsillectomy throughout England and Wales in 1997 found that 92% of patients felt that their throat was better than before the operation, but slightly less than this number (88%) were pleased that they had the operation. Expand
