Abstract

Objectives: To determine the impact of adenotonsillectomy on quality of life (QOL) in children with obstructive sleep disorders (OSDs) before and after surgery. Design: Prospective, observational, before-and-after trial. Setting: Seven tertiary pediatric otolaryngology practices. Patients: Convenience sample of 101 children (mean age, 6.2 years) with adenotonsillar hypertrophy and OSD scheduled for adenotonsillectomy. Intervention: Adenotonsillectomy was performed in children for OSDs. Quality of life was assessed using the Obstructive Sleep Disorders-6 survey, a validated instrument for detecting QOL change in children with OSDs. Surveys were completed at the initial office visit (visit 1), the day of surgery (visit 2), and at the postoperative office visit (visit 3). Physical characteristics were assessed using tonsillar and orocraniofacial scales (visit 1). Satisfaction with health care decisions was assessed using the Satisfaction With Decision and Satisfaction With Office Visit scales (visit 1). Main Outcome Measures: Short-term changes in QOL before (visits 1 and 2) and after (visits 2 and 3) surgery. Results: Changes in QOL before surgery were trivial or small, and smaller than changes after surgery (mean change score, 0.18 vs 2.3; P
