Outpatient tonsillectomy in children: Demographic and geographic variation in the United States, 2006

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Objectives: To examine geographic and demographic variation for outpatient tonsillectomy in children nationally. Study design: The 2006 National Survey of Ambulatory Surgery was analyzed to describe outpatient tonsillectomy in children. Rates by age, sex, region, urban/rural residence, and payment source were calculated with 2006 population estimates from the Census Bureau and the National Health Interview Survey as denominators. Rates were compared with Z tests. Results: In 2006, approximately 583 000 (95% CI, 370 000-796 000) outpatient tonsillectomy procedures were performed in children in the United States. Rates per 10 000 children were lower in children 13 to 17 years old (33.8 per 10 000) than in both children 7 to 12 years old (91.3; P
