Surgical considerations about shaver adenoidectomy: our experience
Adenoidectomy is a very common surgical procedure in pediatric otolaryngology.
Aim. To investigate two major operative techniques used for pediatric adenoidectomy (classic and using microdebrider), from a surgical point of view. Ease of use, comfort of the surgeon and possible intraoperative difficulties were studied and reported here.
Material and method. A series of 93 patients were randomly assigned to two kind of surgery. Parameters like introperative blood loss, duration of the surgery and accuracy of the technique were assesed.
Conclusions. Both techniques can consume similar amount of time. Blood loss is significantly higher with microdebrider but better surgical accuracy is obtained through powered instrumentation.
Keywords: adenoidectomy, microdebrider
