Tonsillectomy: Morbidity and an Anti-inflammatory Agent

Tonsillectomy: Morbidity and an Anti-inflammatory Agent Abstract THROUGHOUT the years, the otolaryngologist has been greatly concerned with the innumerable and varied complaints of patients following tonsillectomies.

Abstract

Abstract THROUGHOUT the years, the otolaryngologist has been greatly concerned with the innumerable and varied complaints of patients following tonsillectomies. Taking this fact into consideration, we decided to use a potent anti-inflammatory agent with analgesic and antipyretic actions (oxyphenbutazone), in an attempt to determine its value in decreasing the morbidity after this surgical procedure. The effectiveness of this drug to control edema and pain in laryngectomies, adenotonsillectomies, facial fractures of different types, and sinusectomies has been widely demonstrated by many authors: Catalano and Rossi,1 Connell et al,2 Miller et al,3 Neves Pinto,4 and Pinto Zepeda.5 Chemistry The chemical composition of oxyphenbutazone is 1-phenyl-2(p-hydroxyphenyl)-3, 5-dioxo-4-butylpyrazolidine-monohydrate. It is a white powder, soluble in the alkaline medium of the duodenum. It is supplied in round sugar-coated tablets of 100 mg and in suppositories of 250 mg.
