How is the adenoids removed from the child?
Today there are a huge number of diseases that affect children. In this article, I would like to talk about adenoids and their removal.
If you plan to remove the adenoids in a child, each mother should know what kind of disease it is, with which it is necessary to fight through surgical intervention. So, the adenoids themselves are an increase in the pharyngeal tonsil of the person, because of which there is a certain difficulty in breathing, snoring may appear, more common colds occur, adenoids can also fester. There is a problem not in all children, it can be associated with various allergic reactions, the constitution of the human body, frequent diseases of an infectious nature. Adenoids arise mainly at the age of 2-8 years.
Not immediately the doctor will send for removal of adenoids in the child. First, conservative treatment will be carried out: washing the nose with various solutions, sucking off mucus, a medication solution can be prescribed. But very often this is not enough, there is an adenotomy - adenoids of 3-4 degrees. It's only then that surgical intervention is prescribed.
Removal of adenoids in a child is most often performed by endoscopy under general anesthesia. You can, of course, do the operation and under local anesthesia, but modern doctors and parents of babies often try to protect the child from such trauma, as watching the actions of the doctor. Often in such a situation, children are able to relax and receive quality treatment is prevented by ordinary fear. Endoscopic same method allows the surgeon to better view the field being operated and, as a consequence, perform a qualitative operation. At the same time, the little ones themselves do not feel anything at all, they are not witnesses to surgical operations, which in itself is a huge plus. It is worth noting that the widely used endoscopy allows you to improve the quality of the operation several times and avoid relapse in the future. Also, this method of solving the problem is not very traumatic, which is very important.
How is the adenoid removal in the child? The operation takes very little time, about 5 minutes. The doctor uses an endoscope to examine the field to be operated, prepare, and then excise the tonsils. That's all. There is nothing difficult for a real expert in this.
If the mother can not choose which way to best remove the adenoids in children, the feedback of parents who passed through this is a good source of information. You can communicate with mothers who have resorted to different methods of surgical intervention, and for themselves to draw certain conclusions. Also, information on how expensive removal of adenoids in children may be important. The cost of the operation can be completely different. If manipulations are carried out at a local polyclinic, it is generally done free of charge (officially). If the clinic is paid, it should be checked with the administrator or the doctor. As a rule, the cost varies within the limits of 20 thousand rubles.
As such, there is no postoperative period. But mothers should wait about a week after the operation to follow the baby's nutrition. He is not recommended to consume hot foods, everything should be a little warmed up, otherwise the vessels may widen and bleeding begin. You also need to avoid various injuries to the nose. That's all precautions.
