  • It has been carried out a retrospective analysis of 34 patients suffering from carcinoma epidermoid of the tonsillar fossa being treated with two different therapies from 1989 to 1996.
  • Eleven of them were treated with chemotherapy and radiotherapy.
  • On multivariate analysis, age (p = 0.28) and modality of treatment (p = 0.80) were not significant effect on survival.
  • Advanced stages (III-IV) showed 3.4 times much more risk of death than early stages (I-II) (p = 0.11).

  • [Title] Management of cervical metastases in advanced squamous cell carcinoma of the tonsillar fossa following radiotherapy.
  • OBJECTIVE: To assess the value of planned neck dissection in patients with a complete response to definitive radiotherapy for squamous cell carcinoma of the tonsillar fossa with advanced nodal disease.
  • PATIENTS: A consecutive series of 36 patients with squamous cell carcinoma of the tonsillar fossa with N2 or N3 nodal disease treated with primary radiation therapy with or without concurrent chemotherapy between January 1, 1992, and April 1, 2003, at the University of California, San Francisco, Comprehensive Cancer Center.
  • Of the 15 patients with a complete response, only 2 (13%) later developed regional recurrences, 1 of which was an isolated recurrence in the neck.
  • CONCLUSIONS: The rate of regional recurrence after a complete response to radiation therapy with or without concurrent chemotherapy for tonsillar squamous cell carcinoma with advanced cervical metastases is low.
  • Our results support close surveillance of the neck in those who have achieved a complete response after radiation therapy with or without chemotherapy.

5. Stevens MH, Stevens DC: Pain reduction by fibrin sealant in older children and adult tonsillectomy. Laryngoscope; 2005 Jun;115(6):1093-6
MedlinePlus Health Information. consumer health - Tonsillitis.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • OBJECTIVES: Because tonsillectomy is a painful procedure in adults, this study was performed to see whether the addition of fibrin sealant (Tisseel) to the tonsillar fossa at the completion of tonsillectomy would reduce pain in adults and allow them to return to work sooner.
  • STUDY DESIGN: Forty adult patients over the age of 12 were entered into a prospective randomized study to see whether the addition of fibrin sealant (Tisseel) to the tonsillar fossa at the completion of tonsillectomy for recurrent tonsillitis would reduce the time the patient needed to take narcotic analgesics after surgery.
  • Twenty-five (adults had the same procedure with the addition of Tisseel to see how long they required narcotic analgesics postoperatively and when they were able to resume normal activities.
  • RESULTS: The control group took narcotics for an average of 10.3 days, whereas the addition of Tisseel reduced the time to 8.16 days (P = .0058).
  • This significant reduction of time allowed adults to return to work and other activities sooner.
  • CONCLUSION: Because the time required to return to work is often of paramount interest to patients having surgery, Tisseel should be considered a safe addition to older children and adult tonsillectomy in patients who are not allergic to bovine products because it will allow an earlier return to normal activities.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Transoral resection of tonsillar squamous cell carcinoma.
  • OBJECTIVES: The tonsillar fossa is the most common subsite of the oropharynx to be afflicted with squamous cell carcinoma (SCCA).
  • Accepted treatments include any combination of surgery, radiotherapy, and chemotherapy.
  • We review the oncologic and functional outcomes of patients with tonsillar carcinoma who underwent transoral tumor resection and neck dissection with or without postoperative radiotherapy or chemoradiotherapy.
  • METHODS: From 1996 through January 2005, 102 patients with tonsillar SCCA underwent transoral resection.
  • Immediate and long-term speech and swallowing function and treatment-related morbidity were analyzed.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Transoral resection of tonsillar SCCA with or without postoperative adjuvant therapy provided excellent locoregional control and minimized treatment-related morbidity.
  • We believe that transoral resection is the optimal treatment for patients with oropharyngeal SCCA.

  • Postoperative bacterial infection of the tonsillar fossa has been proposed as an important factor causing pain and associated morbidity, and some studies have found a reduction in morbid outcomes following the administration of perioperative antibiotics.
  • Secondary outcomes were fever, time taken to resume normal diet and activities and adverse events.

  • One group received lidocaine with adrenaline soaked swabs packed in their tonsillar fossae while the control group received saline-soaked swabs.
  • Chi-square and two-tailed unpaired Student's t-tests were used to compare the two independent groups. p<0.05 was accepted as statistically significant.
  • CONCLUSION: We suggest that application of topical lidocaine with adrenaline seems to be a safe and easy medication for local anesthetic use.

  • Therefore, we applied a mixture of lidocaine and fibrin glue to the tonsillar fossae immediately after tonsillectomy and evaluated its analgesic effects.
  • After routine tonsillectomy, the operation was terminated in group A (control group), but the bilateral tonsillar fossae were covered with 1 mL fibrin glue using CaCl2 as solution to dissolve thrombin in group B and using 4% lidocaine chloride instead of CaCl2 in group C.
  • CONCLUSION: This method can be readily performed, requires no special treatment, and appears to have adequate pain-relieving effects.

  • Study drugs were administered to both tonsillar fossae for 5 min.
  • Morphine and ketamine groups had longer effective analgesia time than the morphine + ketamine and control groups.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • INTERVENTIONS: Patients received injections in the tonsillar fossae of isotonic sodium chloride, ropivacaine, or ropivacaine plus clonidine prior to tonsil excision.
  • MAIN OUTCOME MEASURES: Visual analogue (pain) scale scores at rest and when drinking, opioid use, recovery time to normal activity, and incidence of symptoms such as otalgia.
  • CONCLUSION: Preincisional injection of ropivacaine with clonidine prior to tonsillectomy has a preemptive analgesic effect that outlasts the local anesthetic and decreases pain, opioid use, and the time to return to normal activity.

  • We report a case of an adult woman with an Eagle's Syndrome (ES) treated with medical therapy.
  • We report a case of a 49-year-old lady with a 1-year history of oro-pharyngeal foreign body sensation localized at the left tonsillar fossa, associated with a dull intermittent pain.
  • A lateral radiograph and a computed tomography scan of head and neck showed an elongated styloid process of 57 mm on the left side and 48 mm on the right one.
  • The patient refused surgical treatment as first choice.
  • She underwent a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory local treatment, with progressive disappearance of symptoms.
  • In conclusion, a precise differential diagnosis is crucial in order to choose the most adequate treatment, which can be either surgical or non surgical.
  • Medical treatment represents the first choice, followed by surgical styloid process resection, in the case of persistence or ingravescence of the complaint.
