Özet

Background: Adenoid hypertrophy treatment for children is generally planned in accordance with the degree of airway obstruction and related morbidity. If surgical treatment is indicated, the individual risk/benefit analysis of patients should be assessed in terms of anesthetic and postoperative complications. Although there are few alternative treatment options, these may be considered as a nonsurgical approach in less serious cases. Accordingly, studies about intranasal steroid applications under various protocols have been presented.
