Abstract [en]

Removal of tonsillar tissue is one of the most common procedures in the Oto-Rhino-Laryngology field. There are two types of tonsil surgeries: tonsillectomy and tonsillotomy. The most dreaded complicationis postoperative hemorrhage. The aim of this study is to analyze the difference in incidence of such postoperative hemorrhage after tonsillectomy in comparison to tonsillotomy. The empirical analysis is based on the medical records of all 505 patients whounderwent tonsil surgery in Region Örebro Län in 2017. Of these, 341 patients underwent tonsillectomy and 164 patients underwent tonsillotomy. The result showed that 21 patients suffered from postoperative hemorrhage (4,2 %). Except for postoperative hemorrhage, the patient’s age, sex, type of surgery, smoking habits and hospital of surgery was recorded. In total 249 patients were women (49,3 %)and 232 were men (45,9%), 4,8 % of the patients sex was unknown. Regarding age were 176 of the patients under 18 years old (34,9 %), 86 patients were between the ages 18-65 (17,0 %) and 4 patients were over 65 years old (0,8 %). The result of the analysis shows a statistically significant difference between the two operations in terms of incidence of postoperative hemorrhage. However, the incidence of postoperative hemorrhage in Region Örebro Län is in accordance with previously reported National Data. Moreover, no significant difference in incidence of postoperative hemorrhage is found between males and females.
