The function of the pharyngeal tonsil is to prevent infections with the help of antibodies. Chronic inflammation and allergies lead to hyperplasia of the adenoids that is found almost exclusively in children. The treatment of choice is surgical treatment; conservative treatment is only indicated preoperatively or if surgery is contraindicated. In this paper, we will present a new surgical method for adenoidectomy performed trans-orally with coblation, under endoscopic control.
