Full Tonsil and Adenoid Review Here: https://emedicine.medscape.com/article/1899367-overview Video 1: Flexible nasopharyngoscopy demonstrating adenoids and tonsils from perspective of nose and nasopharynx. This view is very different from view obtained by looking through mouth and yields better approximation of degree of obstruction caused by adenoids and tonsils. Video courtesy of Ravindhra G Elluru, MD, PhD. Video 2: View of tonsils and adenoids through mouth. Crowe-Davis mouth gag has been used to open oral cavity. Endotracheal tube can be visualized going from mouth through vocal folds into trachea. Palatine tonsils located on either lateral aspect of oropharynx can be easily visualized. Lingual tonsils are at base of tongue directly below endotracheal tube at point where tongue meets epiglottis. Adenoids are visualized via 120 degree endoscope. Adenoids lie in nasopharynx, lined laterally by torus tubarius. Choanae (posterior openings to nose and posterior septum) can be seen at far side of picture. Video courtesy of Ravindhra G Elluru, MD, PhD. Video 3: View of nasopharynx after adenoidectomy performed with suction cautery. Charred area is residual adenoid pad. Torus tubarius, choanae, and posterior septum are much more visible after removal of adenoids. Video courtesy of Ravindhra G Elluru, MD, PhD.
