Abstract: Patients presenting with post-tonsillectomy haemorrhage are frequently readmitted to hospital, usually for observation, but surgical intervention may sometimes be necessary. A 10 year retrospective analysis of 3553 patients who underwent tonsillectomy with or without adenoidectomy at the Mater Dei hospital was carried out. Clinical notes were used to determine the post-tonsillectomy haemorrhage rate and its relationship to the use of antibiotics.
