  • New Findings In Post Tonsillectomy Care

    Two Children’s Health researchers are among the co-authors of a new national study on the impact of national guideline implementation of post-tonsillectomy care across 43 children’s hospitals, published in the July issue of Pediatrics, the official journal of the American Academy of Pediatrics. The study, co-authored by Children’s Vice President of Quality and Chief Quality Officer Rustin B. Morse, M.D., and pediatric hospitalist, Vineeta Mittal, M.D., both of whom are associate professors of pediatrics at UT Southwestern Medical Center, found that after national guidelines issued by the American Academy of Otolaryngology and Head and Neck Surgery (AAOHNS) in 2011, perioperative care processes improved by increased use of steroids and reduced use of antibiotics, as the guidelines suggested. However, post-surgical visits for pain increased modestly.
