What Is Surgery For Adenoid Hypertrophy In For A 7-year-old Child?
Hello, I have a 7 year old niece. He often coughs and colds, and if tired, sleep snores. After being examined by an ENT doctor, it turns out he was hit by adenoid hypertrophy and the doctor suggested surgery as soon as possible. What kind of operation, huh? Thank you.
Hello Risya, thank you for asking on the HealthReplies.com forum.
The adenoid gland is a gland that normally exists and will grow larger with age without causing interference, and will continue to grow until a certain age (generally at school age) will eventually stop. This gland itself functions as a place of formation of immunity in the body.
Adenoid hypertrophy itself is a condition in which the size of the adenoid gland is greater than the normal adenoid gland, where this condition is generally caused by inflammation or infection that often recurs in the gland itself or in the upper respiratory tract. This enlargement of the gland if it causes some disturbances such as obstruction of the upper respiratory tract, recurrent middle ear infections and recurrent sinus infections (sinusitis), it will be advisable to do surgery where the operation intended here is an action to remove the enlarged adenoid gland the. This procedure can only be done in the operating room, under the influence of anesthetic drugs and can only be done by ENT specialists. Also, be aware that a few days after your nephew's surgery you may experience pain in your throat and a slight feeling of nasal congestion, but don't worry because the condition will improve a few days afterwards.
I hope this helps.
