[The effect of adenoidectomy on eustachian tube function].Med Pregl. 1996; 49(1-2):45-7.MP
301 adenoidectomised and tonsilloadenoidectomised children were tympanometrically tested. The control group consisted of 89 children in whom adenoidectomy was to be performed. Eustachian tube dysfunction was analyzed in both groups. By standard statistic methods it was established that the number of Eustachian tube dysfunctions after adenoidectomy is statistically significantly reduced. On the basis of these findings, it can be concluded that well indicated, on time and technically well performed adenoidectomy statistically significantly reduces the number of Eustachian tube dysfunctions and that is why it is justified in therapeutic management of acute and secretory otitis media relapses.
