Objectives To evaluate the safety, morbidity, and efficacy of radiofrequency tissue volume reduction of tonsils using two different surgical techniques and to compare these two techniques with each other and with classic tonsillectomy. 
Lingual tonsil reduction in OSA: transcervical radiofrequency ablation.
Use of coblation in otolaryngology, head and neck surgery.
A pilot randomized controlled trial of coblation tonsillectomy versus dissection tonsillectomy with bipolar diathermy haemostasis
Alternative surgical dissection techniques.
Comparison of pain after radiofrequency tonsillectomy compared with conventional tonsillectomy: a pilot study.
Comparison of radiofrequency ablation, laser and coblator techniques in reduction of tonsil size
