Tonsillectomy is one of the most common surgical procedures performed worldwide. Several techniques have been developed to reduce morbidity and enhance recovery after tonsillectomy. Our study was designed to compare post-operative pain with three different techniques: cold dissection (CD), monopolar-bipolar dissection (MBD) and coblation dissection (CBD). 103 adults were scheduled for elective tonsillectomy from September 2014 to December 2015, and were randomized to CD, MBD and CBD. Post-operative pain was assessed using visual analogue scale (VAS) and Lattinen Test (LT)...

Proteus Syndrome (PS) is a rare congenital overgrowth disease affecting bones, skin, adipose and the central nervous system. The result is asymmetric, disfiguring hypertrophy which can manifest as craniofacial dysmorphia and aerodigestive tract abnormalities. We report the case of obstructive lingual tonsillar hypertrophy resulting in residual sleep disordered breathing after adenotonsillectomy in a child with PS, a previously unrecognized manifestation of the disease. Endoscopic treatment with coblation effectively and safely treated the obstructive symptoms...

Objective Tonsillectomy is the most common operation performed in the otolaryngologic fields. Efforts have been made to reduce postoperative complications, and one of these is intracapsular tonsillectomy and adenoidectomy (ICTA), which leaves the tonsillar tissue with tonsillar capsule. This study aimed to evaluate intracapsular tonsillectomy compared with classical extracapsular tonsillectomy in terms of efficacy of the technique for managing obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) and reducing postoperative complications...

OBJECTIVE: Suprastomal granulomas pose a persistent challenge for tracheostomy-dependent children. They can limit phonation, cause difficulty with tracheostomy tube changes and prevent decannulation. We describe the use of the coblator for radiofrequency plasma ablation of suprastomal granulomas in five consecutive children from September 2012 to January 2016. METHOD: Retrospective case series at a tertiary medical center. RESULTS: The suprastomal granuloma could be removed with the coblator in all 5 cases...

BACKGROUND: The use of bipolar electrodes for arthroscopic procedures carries a theoretical ex vivo risk of inducing burn injuries. Few studies have measured the in vivo temperatures produced by bipolar electrodes during arthroscopy, and their results are conflicting. The objective of this study was to evaluate the temperature profile within the subacromial space during shoulder arthroscopy with two different electrode systems. HYPOTHESIS: The primary hypothesis was that the two electrode systems produced similar temperature variations and peak temperatures...

REVIEW
Garret W Choby, Peter H Hwang
Coblation is a technology that incorporates bipolar radiofrequency energy to ablate tissue at relatively low temperatures. Its use for sinonasal surgery is actively being investigated, including applications for turbinate reduction, sinus surgery, skull base surgery, and adenoidectomy. Potential benefits include reduction in blood loss, improved endoscopic surgical visualization, and reduction in postoperative pain. The main drawbacks are its relatively high cost, potential adverse effects on functional epithelium, and relative paucity of long-term outcomes...

Coblation is one of the more recent techniques for tonsillectomy; however, it remains unclear whether it exhibits any benefit or increased risk when compared to other techniques. This review provides an updated assessment of coblation tonsillectomy and how it compares to other tonsillectomy techniques. Systematic review and descriptive analysis of published literature. Electronic searches of MEDLINE, EMBASE, Web of Science and the Cochrane Database were performed. We included all randomized control trials comparing coblation tonsillectomy (not 'tonsillotomy') with any other tonsillectomy technique...

The base of the tongue has been recognized as a significant site of obstruction in patients with obstructive sleep apnea (OSA). Our aim was to determine the independent predictors of surgical success in tongue base resection combined with lateral pharyngoplasty for OSA. Thirty-one OSA patients who underwent endoscopie-guided coblator or transoral robotic tongue base resection in combination with lateral pharyngoplasty for the treatment of retroglossal obstruction between March 2012 and December 2015 were enrolled in this study...

Sung Jae Heo, Jung-Soo Kim
Coblation-assisted turbinoplasty is an effective and safe method to manage nasal obstruction. The common complications of the procedure are pain, bleeding, and crust formation. Since coblation does not generate high heat, direct burn injuries by coblation have been rarely reported. Nevertheless, the authors experienced a skin burn injury in a patient, which is the first patient related to coblation-assisted turbinoplasty. Therefore, surgeons need to be careful and prepared for an inadvertent heat injury at the site that touches the coblation device...
