Abstract

Tonsillectomy is still surrounded by controversy, especially regarding choice of surgical technique. Despite numerous surgical techniques are present, post-operative pain remains significant postoperative morbidities. An ideal method would lessen complications and minimize operative time and costs. This is a randomized double blinded interventional study. We enrolled 70 subjects and divided into two groups of 35 subjects in each. One group underwent traditional tonsillectomy and another underwent coblation tonsillectomy. We compared operating time, intraoperative blood loss, post-operative pain, return to normal activities and diet and post-operative hemorrhage. Mean operating time in coblation group was 18.24 ± 5.37 min and in traditional group 30.04 ± 7.08 min. The mean blood loss in coblation tonsillectomy group was 82.79 ± 21.13 ml and in traditional tonsillectomy 150.4 ± 37.91 ml. The mean of post-operative pain score in coblation tonsillectomy group was 3.2 ± 1.47 and in traditional tonsillectomy group 6.11 ± 1.61. The mean day of regaining activity in coblation tonsillectomy group was 6.26 ± 0.92 days and in traditional tonsillectomy group 8.26 ± 1.09 days. Mean time by which patients of coblation tonsillectomy group regained their diet was 4.11 ± 0.87 days whereas in traditional tonsillectomy group it was 6.14 ± 1.14 days. There was no case observed with episode of primary or secondary hemorrhage. We conclude from this study that coblation tonsillectomy takes less operating time with less blood loss, also associated with less post-operative pain, less time taken to achieve normal diet and activities.
