Abstract:
Objective: The aim of the present study is to evaluate and compare the postoperative risk of bleeding of ibuprofen versus paracetamol used as analgesics after pediatric tonsillectomy with or without adenoidectomy.
Method: A retrospective study was conducted involving 600 pediatric patients, underwent tonsillectomy with or without adenoidectomy (TS w/wo AD) which had been done at Al-Salam Teaching Hospital from July 2017 to august 2018. The data analyzed included, age, gender, postoperative follow up and monitor for pain and bleeding (early and late).
Result: The study was conducted on 600 patients with (TS w/wo AD). The average age was 5.5 years (309 males, 291 females). Postoperative bleeding was not increased, in comparison to that of paracetamol. Nausea and vomiting were less in cases of ibuprofen than that of paracetamol.
Conclusion: Ibuprofen could be used safely as posoperative pain control medication. Paracetamol could be used too alone or with ibuprofen. Ibuprofen is effective in control postop pain, and reduces the need for opioids
