To the Editor.—I was most amazed to read the article "Tonsillectomy Performed on an Outpatient Basis," by T. M. Chiang, A. E. Sukis, and Donald E. Ross, in the Archives (88:307-310 [Sept] 1968). I find that this was a report not of T & A's performed on outpatients but T & A's performed in the hospital with the patient being allowed to return home the same night. There have been surgeons at the Eye, Ear, Nose, and Throat Hospital in New Orleans who have been doing this for the last 50 years.
