Application of philosophy on comprehensive analysis of adenoid hypertrophy space occupying effect in meticulous adenoidectomy



Application of philosophy on comprehensive analysis of adenoid hypertrophy space occupying effect in meticulous adenoidectomy



Lin Chuang Er Bi Yan Hou Tou Jing Wai Ke Za Zhi 29(13): 1209-1212



To achieve targeted and meticulous surgery of adenoid hypertrophy, a comprehensive analysis of adenoid hypertrophy space occupying effect and morphological evaluation were conducted and the clinical results were retrospectively analyzed. One hundred and sixty-three children with adenoid hypertrophy were treated in our department from May 2013 to May 2014. All children received three examinations preoperatively, including: Nasopharyngo-fiberoscopy, Audiometry and Tympanometry. Based on the results, space occupying effect of adenoid hypertrophy was divided into three types: vertical hypertrophy type, horizontal hypertrophy type and vertical & horizontal hypertrophy type. We assumed the causal relationship with vertical hypertrophy type to snoring (nasal blockage) and horizontal hypertrophy type to secretory otitis media respectively. All children received transoral endoscopic adenoidectomy with radiofrequency ablation. The postoperative followup of these children for 6 to 12 months showed that the vertical hypertrophy type and horizontal hypertrophy type children all recovered from the syndromes of snoring (nasal blockage) and secretory otitis media respectively. The nasopharyngo-fiberoscopy showed that the nasopharyngeal space was smooth and the bilateral choanas opened well. No recurrence was found. The philosophy of comprehensive analysis on adenoid hypertrophy space occupying effect could help the surgeons understand adenoid hypertrophy better and can guide the adenoidectomy more meticulously.
