Abstract

The gold standard method of tonsillectomy is "cold steel" dissection (DT). A dissector is used to separate the tonsil and capsule from the underlying muscle layer, with diathermy / surgical ties to achieve hemostasis. It causes significant postoperative pain and risk of bleeding (return to theatre rate 1.6%). [Abstract copyright: This article is protected by copyright. All rights reserved.]
