POSTOPERATIVE TONSILLAR BLEEDINGITS SURGICAL CONTROL, WITH MENTION OF CASES

JAMA. 1909;LIII(9):698-706. doi:10.1001/jama.1909.92550090002002i
Abstract

The operation on the faucial tonsils at this time may be said to be in a transitional stage from that of incomplete to complete removal. The importance of this subject prompted me to make known some of my ideas and experiences connected with the operation. My first intention was to discuss the entire subject in a general way, and the ideas of a number of the leaders in this Section were asked for in a circular letter addressed to them. I desire here to express my appreciation of their hearty and prompt replies. Our Executive Committee, realizing the magnitude and great importance of the tonsil operation, very wisely decided that a symposium would best serve the purpose of bringing forth a comprehensive and general discussion. I have, therefore, the honor of saying a few words about postoperative tonsillar bleeding.
