We used video endoscopy and measurement of stridor to compare the efficacy of these manoeuvres in 24 children (3-10 yr) with adenotonsillar hyperplasia. A bronchofibrescope was passed via the nose while the children were breathing spontaneously, to identify (i) the shortest transverse distance between the tonsils… CONTINUE READING
