Cocaine has always been known to adversely affect the nose, often resulting in perforations of the nasal septum. However, over the last couple of decades, patients with known cocaine abuse have presented with severe nasal deformities and associated tissue loss affecting the nose, face and palate. This is now recognised as a drug-induced vasculitis that has several characteristics and similarities to granulomatosis with polyangiitis (GPA). The condition was initially sporadic but is becoming much more common. The attached guidelines, jointly written by BRS, BSFPS and ENT UK, offer information to ENT surgeons and other interested healthcare professionals who are unfamiliar with the condition but also offer some guidance on terminology and clinical management.

Day Case Paediatric Adenotonsillectomy Consensus Guidelines

19 February 2024
Guidelines
Paediatrics
Professionals

Traditionally adenotonsillectomy surgery in children has been viewed as requiring at least an overnight stay post operatively. This was to monitor for bleeding and airway issues and to ensure adequate pain relief was achieved with a return to normal eating and drinking. However, numerous studies have been published showing that day-case tonsillectomy is safe and effective for the majority of children with minimal co-morbidities, even those with obstructed sleep disordered breathing. It is desirable with regards the utilisation of resources, cost and the preference of most families. It will also facilitate more timely access to surgical treatment.

After months of collaborative refinement between ENT UK and NHSE, we completed a ‘Decision Support Tool’ to aid both patients and clinicians in deciding on treatment options for recurrent tonsillitis. The document also includes information from the NATTINA study, published on 17 May 2023 in the Lancet.  Newcastle University’s NIHR-commissioned NATTINA trial concluded that adult tonsillectomy for recurrent tonsillitis is effective both clinically and in terms of cost. The trial found that patients who underwent a tonsillectomy had 50% fewer occurrences of sore throat over two years, compared to patients who did not.
