Abstract

This is a retrospective study of 350 cases of tonsillectomy for post-tonsillectomy hemorrhage. The incidence figure was found to be 1.14% i.e, 4 cases out of 350. Reactionary hemorrhage occurred in 2 patients and secondary hemorrhage was also found in 2 cases. Two patients having reactionary hemorrhage and one patient having secondary hemorrhage were treated by ligation and another patient having secondary hemorrhage was treated conservatively.
