ARROYO D, Michelle; URRUTIA C, Mauricio  y  CISTERNAS V, Ariel. Post-adenoidectomy reoperations due to obstructive adenoid hyperplasia. Rev. Otorrinolaringol. Cir. Cabeza Cuello [online]. 2014, vol.74, n.1, pp.31-35. ISSN 0718-4816.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0718-48162014000100005.

Introduction: The incidence of post-adenoidectomy reoperation, be it a second adenoidectomy or a tonsillectomy, is unknown within our environment. Foreign publications show a 2% of re-adenoidectomies and an 8% of ulterior tonsillectomies. Aim: To describe the adenoidectomies performed at our center, to assess the prevalence of reoperations, and to seek possible associated factors to the latter. Material y method: Descriptive and analytical retrospective assessment. A review was performed of records for patients that between January of 1999 and December of 2010 underwent adenoidectomy on account of snoring pathology. Demographics, controls, nasopharyngolaryngoscopies and reoperations (re-adenoidectomies and tonsillectomies) were recorded. Results: The review entailed checking 106 records. 55,7% of patients were men. 42% of patients had Parikh?s Grade III adenoids and 58% showed Grade IV ones. 5,6% of patients underwent reoperation. A significant difference could be observed in age (p=0,04) and tonsillar size (p=0,004) between those that had and had not undergone reoperation. There was no gender association (p=0,45), neither for asthma (p=0,31) or rhinitis (p=0,18). Yet, by multivariate logistic regression, no variable was significantly associated by itself to the need for reoperation. Conclusion: Reoperation prevalence was similar to that published, and no association to other factors was discovered.
