The tonsil tissue is located in the nasopharynx. Enlarged tonsils may block the nasopharynx and cause snoring in children, as well as deteriorating the quality of sleep. The tonsils may also become chronically inflamed.

Tympanostomy is the primary measure used in recurrent ear inflammations, but in some cases, the patient may benefit from a simultaneous adenotomy. Ear specialists perform the operation as day surgery under general anaesthesia.
