• Adenoids Complications

  • Recurrent infections of ears and throat are among the leading Adenoids complications seen with Tonsillitis, Adenoiditis, Suppurative Otitis Media and Pharyngitis being common.
  • Complications as a result of significant enlargement include nasal obstruction, breathing, swallowing, and sleep problems.
  • Extreme breathing problems during sleep may result in Obstructive Sleep Apnoea.
  • Excessive mouth breathing causes fetid breath.

But the major risk associated with Adenoids is linked with surgery done for its removal called Adenoidectomy. Complications are:

  • Bleeding and infection at surgery site
  • Post operative sore throat and pain
  • Anesthesia-related problems
