The aim of this research was to reach an optimal technique concerning the postoperative complications in King Faisal Hospital in Taif, Saudi Arabia.
Methodology: In this retrospective case-series study, pediatric patients who underwent tonsillectomy and adenotonsillectomy at King Faisal hospital were randomly enrolled, from July 2020 to September 2020.
Results: Totally 102 patients were studied, of which 66.7% were males and median age of patients was 7.8 ± 3.7 years. Findings of the study indicated that the most common clinical indication for operation was recurrent adenotonsillitis (90.2%). The majority of the cases were done as case day surgery (91.2%) and the most used surgical technique was cold knife technique (83.3%). Bleeding was the most common complication that occurred in 5 (4.9%) of the patients, followed by pain (1%) and dysphagia (1%). Secondary bleeding was reported in 5 (4.9%) patients. No significant differences were observed between bleeding as general, types of bleeding and post-operative pain in relation to the surgical techniques, as the calculated p-values were recorded as 0.855, 0.855, and 0.904, respectively. There was a significant relation between post-operative complications and the used surgical techniques (p = 0.000).
Conclusion: There was a significant relation between post-tonsillectomy complications as a whole and cold knife technique. There were no significant differences between post-tonsillectomy bleeding and pain as a single entity in relation to the operative technique.

Key words: Tonsillectomy, adenotonsillitis, post-operative complications, operative technique
