The Laryngology Clinic deals with diagnostics, treatment and qualification for surgical procedures performed as part of the Laryngology Department.

The third pharyngeal tonsil, like the palatine tonsils, is present in everyone. Most often, in young children between 3 and 7 years of age, it may be overly enlarged, which is associated with the occurrence of various ailments and diseases. An adenoidectomy is a type of surgical procedure in which a pathologically large third tonsil is removed.

The modern method of assessing tonsil hypertrophy is the endoscopic method using a fiberscope, i.e. a flexible, thin wire containing an optical fiber and ending with a camera, which is inserted through the nose or through the oral cavity, and the magnified image is visible on the monitor screen. The direct palpation method is also used.

The patient is qualified for surgery during an ENT consultation with our operator. On the day of the procedure, he reports to the Hospital Registration with a complete set of documents and tests.

During the first hours the patient should stay in bed in the supine position. He cannot take food or drink. After about 4 hours, he will be able to drink a small amount of liquid, and after another 2-3 hours, eat a light meal. After approx. 8 hours, the patient can be released home. In the following days, a sparing lifestyle is recommended, avoiding exercise, and an easily digestible diet.

Complications are extremely rare. Symptoms that require immediate medical attention include: breathing and cardiovascular abnormalities – rapid or shallow breathing, increased heart rate or a significantly slower, disturbed heart rhythm; disturbance of consciousness, speech, walking; profuse bleeding from the nose or mouth, fresh blood when cleaning the nose and when coughing up, grounds like vomiting; high temperature above 39 ° C, not responding to typical antipyretics, associated with pain and general weakness.
