We report here comparison of classical method and microdebrider technique for adenotonsillectomy in pediatric patients with OSAS. The microdebrider group (Group I) were 9 pediatric Japanese OSAS patients of 3 boys and 2 girls. For comparison, 10 children undergoing the classical adenoidectomy (Group II) were selected among the 30 pediatric Japanese OSAS patients. These Group II children were matched in age, sex and Kaup index with the Group I. The results indicate that the microdebrider adenoidectomy could be more effective for bettering sleep apnea than the conventional operation. In conclusion, the microdebrider adenoidectomy for pediatric OSAS patients could be more effective for ameliorating sleep apnea than the standard adenoidectomy.
