About Video

This video demonstrates the time-tested techniques of removal of adenoid tissue. Confirmation of complete removal of adenoids is performed with the help of a laryngeal mirror. Most surgeons today have during some part of their surgical training employed this technique. Today, with the advent of newer instrumentation such as tissue shavers, especially those with angled blades, LASERs, etc. the conventional use of an adenoid curette has declined. However, if used meticulously, this technique can yield comparable results to those with modern-day instrumentation, with minimal side effects. Besides, this technique still remains the most cost effective to date.
