  • [Tonsil surgery: impact of the mouth gag on pharyngeal diameter]. [Journal Article]
  • HNOHNO 2018 Sep 03
  • Windfuhr JP, Chen YS
  • CONCLUSIONS: Suspension of the mouth gag results in a significant relative "downsizing" of the tonsils due to expansion of the oropharynx. Intraoperative photo documentation should also be performed without suspension of the mouth gag. Further studies may clarify whether stretching of the oropharynx has an impact on the distance between the tonsils and surrounding greater arteries.
  • Evaluation of the effect of pre-operative oral midazolam on post-operative oral fluid intake after tonsillectomy. [Journal Article]
  • IJInt J Pediatr Otorhinolaryngol 2018; 113:248-251
  • Schwartz CM, Honsinger K, … Elmaraghy CA
  • CONCLUSIONS: There was no significant difference in oral fluid intake between the no midazolam and midazolam groups, indicating that clinicians can continue to use their judgement in administering midazolam to select anxious patients prior to tonsillectomy with or without adenoidectomy. Future work could include multi-center retrospective reviews or a randomized placebo-controlled trial to examine more carefully the effects of midazolam on postoperative oral fluid intake.
