OBJECTIVES

To compare tonsillotomy (TT)

and tonsillectomy (TE) with regard to relief of symptoms six months

postoperatively.

METHODS

Register study and analysis of data from the National Tonsil Surgery Register in Sweden covering the

period 1997-2008. A total of 54 696 tonsil surgery procedures were registered whereof 23 339 (42.7%) were performed on children (1-15 years) due to obstructive symptoms and tonsil hypertrophy. Data were collected from patients six months postoperatively from questionnaires.

RESULTS

17 903 children were operated with TE and 5 436 with TT. The ratio TT/TE was increasing after 2004.

More than 96 % reported total or partial symptom relief six months

CONCLUSIONS

Both TT and TE are highly effective in relieving obstructive symptoms in children.short
