Tonsillar Medical Research Studies

Up-to-date List of Tonsillar Medical Research Studies

What Research is Being Done?

A clinical study involves research using human volunteers (also called participants) that is intended to add to medical knowledge. There are two main types of clinical studies: clinical trials (also called interventional studies) and observational studies. Following list includes both interventional and observational studies.

Latest Tonsillar Medical Research Studies

Rank Status Study
1 Recruiting Assessing the Necessity of Prescribing Antibiotics (Clavulin or Clindamycin Versus Placebo) Post-Peritonsillar Abscess Drainage
Condition: Peritonsillar Abscess
Interventions: Drug: Clavulin;   Drug: Randomization to Placebo;   Drug: Clindamycin
Outcome Measure: Re-accumulation of the patient's peri-tonsillar abscess
2 Recruiting The Effect of Peritonsillar Infiltration of Ketamine and Dexamethasone for Postoperative Pain Relief in Children Following Adenotonsillectomy
Condition: Tonsillectomy
Interventions: Drug: saline;   Drug: Ketamine;   Drug: Dexamethasone;   Drug: ketamine-dexamethasone
Outcome Measures: pain will be assessed by [observational pain scores (OPS)];   time to first demand of analgesia;   postoperative analgesic consumption;   nausea, vomiting will be assessed by questioning their parents.;   bleeding will be assessed by questioning their parents;   family satisfaction will be assessed by questioning their parents.
3 Unknown  The Effect of Adding Pain Relievers to Local Anesthesia Before Preforming Drainage in Peritonsillar Abscess
Condition: Peritonsillar Abscess
Intervention: Drug: dypiron, tramadol
Outcome Measure: the vas scale
4 Recruiting Auricular Acupuncture for The Treatment of Post-Tonsillectomy Pain
Conditions: Recurrent Tonsillitis;   Recurrent Peritonsillar Abscess;   Obstructive Sleep Apnea
Intervention: Procedure: Auricular Acupuncture
Outcome Measure: Reduction in VAS scores between experimental and control group
5 Recruiting Glossopharyngeal Nerve Blockade for Awake Videolaryngoscope Assisted Endotracheal Intubation in the Morbidly Obese
Condition: Gagging
Interventions: Other: lidocaine;   Other: placebo
Outcome Measures: Gagging;   vital signs;   lidocaine levels

These studies may lead to new treatments and are adding insight into Tonsillar etiology and treatment.

A major focus of Tonsillar research is the development of new drugs and other treatment options. Studies seek to identify new drugs to treat various related disorders and to find safer, more effective doses for medications already being used. Other research is aimed at identifying receptors or drug targets.
