Quando vanno tolte le tonsille?

tonsillectomia

Nel post di qualche giorno fa sulle tonsilliti non ho volutamente parlato della terapia chirurgica della tonsillite, ovvero dell’intervento di tonsillectomia, proprio per l’obiettivo che avevo di scrivere un post specifico sull’argomento. L’intervento di rimozione delle tonsille si chiama appunto tonsillectomia, ed è uno degli interventi chirurgici più frequenti in età pediatrica. In Italia se ne effettuano circa 50.000 all’anno.
Pur essendo un intervento semplice e di routine, la rimozione delle tonsille e non è esente da rischi per lo più legati all’assistenza anestesiologica e al decorso post-operatorio; la mortalità postoperatoria invece per fortuna è rarissima (1 caso ogni 10.000-35.000).
Ma quando vanno tolte le tonsille?Oggi, l’asportazione delle tonsille è meno diffusa di un tempo grazie a un miglioramento delle conoscenze sulla patologia adenotonsillare e delle capacità di diagnosi; è stata pertanto ridiscussa l’utilità del trattamento chirurgico nei bambini.
Nei bambini si opta per l’intervento chirurgico solo se sono presenti problemi di ostruzione delle vie respiratorie e disturbi respiratori durante il sonno dovuti all’aumento del volume delle tonsille e/o delle adenoidi (ipertrofia). In questo caso il bimbo presenta difficoltà di respirazione dal naso o roncopatia (russamento) talora associato alle apnee notturne. Se esistono questi sospetti è necessario eseguire la polisonnografia notturna. 

Altre indicazioni chirurgiche sono oggi molto dibattute e comprendono le tonsilliti acute ricorrenti (più di 4-5 episodi di tonsillite all’anno in età scolare e più di 6-7 episodi in età pre-scolare); la febbre mediterranea ricorrente (sindrome PFAPA) o altre indicazioni, rare ma importanti, come l’ascesso peritonsillare e l’ipertofia tonsillare asimmetrica con sospetto di patologia maligna. Nel bambini la tonsillite è spesso accompagnata dall’adenoidite, infiammazione delle adenoidi che causa ostruzione nasale. Adenoidi e tonsille vengono in molti casi tolte insieme. Al contrario, nei bambini con ostruzione respiratoria nasale e tonsille solo lievemente ipertrofiche e senza frequenti infezioni si tende a rimuovere solo le adenoidi, perché l’operazione è meno invasiva e con meno strascichi.

    Yes, fashion trends are referential and recurring, but at the same time new ones
    pop up, allowing us to visually reflect the world around us.

    That’s due to the fact they desire folks with a little more experience who can convert their offers.
    The last place you must look to when you are wanting for
    sensible solutions is to the IRS. I know the rest can still pull through, and I would be willing to wait it out till they have drawn all the bolts and knots to come up with
    the final tally.

    Hair is linked to our self-worth and our personality.
    The answer is what type of diet allows you as you age to produce enough hydrochloric acid to digest your food properly so the fermenting food in your stomach doesn’t cause other degenerative and
    inflammatory-related diseases. There are a number of lasers used to remove locks like Ruby aesthetic laser, Alexandrite laser, Pulsed diode array, Aragon aesthetic laser

    I also like that they are wrapped individually so I may open the package and
    take out what I need without worrying about re-wrapping the rest to prevent freezer burn. It”s tough to keep things dry on a center console boat. There are so many great places to go while you are there.

    Online classes many times offer electronic certificates, which can be relayed online as soon as you submit the results of
    your driving test. When you have decided the location and fully done you work
    on the distance and point out the exact place of the location for long distance

    mind that it is related to a star (TV or movie actor) who trying
    to delay the effects of aging. Though plastic surgery gives results quicker than other means but you need to have patience.

    This artificial fragrance, alcohols will create pain and skin irritation. In order to get a
    rich and spotless tan while keeping your skin smooth and glowing, it is necessary to use the best quality tanning products.

    My personal preference having used both mediums is the lotion, or the sunless tanner spray, sprayed
    on and then rubbed in.

    Everyone wants cheap bait these days but the big problem
    is that cheap often means rubbish. Connect “A’s” positive terminal to “B’s” negative terminal.

    The exception to this rule is when fishing structure, there will
    always be a calm spot behind structure that cat fish rest in and it will be natural for your bait to settle in this area.
