 Tonsil, Adenoid Removal Reduces Asthma Symptoms

Kids with asthma who have their tonsils and adenoids removed may experience less asthma symptoms, say researchers.

Researchers from Children's Hospital and Research Center in Oakland, California, followed 105 children with asthma (7-21 years) referred for sleep study for suspected sleep apnea. Twenty-four patients with sleep apnea required T&A, of which 11 patients followed through with surgery. Results indicated that asthma scores trended toward improvement with T&A. However, there was no significant increase in the lung function following T&A.
