dc.description.abstractObjective: Upper airway obstruction and sleeping disorders are important issues in syndromic children, including mouth, lower-upper jaw, or all facial abnormalities. Tonsillectomy and/or adenoidectomy is required because of systemic problems and upper airway obstruction that increase the existing systemic problems, except those anomalies. However, tonsillectomy and/or adenoidectomy are mostly avoided because of the tendency to cause both intubation/perioperative systemic problems and respiratory complications in the postoperative period and in delays in the oral intake. However, these surgeries are sometimes required. In this context, we present our experience related with performing tonsillectomy and/or adenoidectomy in syndromic children admitted to our hospital. Methods: We retrospectively examined the data on tonsillectomy and/or adenoidectomy performed in syndromic patients in our clinic between 2001 and 2011. Results: We did not observe any postoperative complications in adenoidectomy and/or tonsillectomy performed by the same surgeon in 14 syndromic cases. Conclusion: It should be noted that respiratory problems may arise from many different anatomical regions in syndromic patients. Therefore, surgery should be performed taking into consideration all of these factors in these patients. These patients must be hospitalized in the postoperative period.en_US
