Perioperative Dexamethasone and The Risk of Bleeding in Pediatric Tonsillectomy: A Prospective, Randomized, Double Blind Trial
Speaker: Thomas Gallagher, DO

San Diego, CA One-time perioperative dexamethasone administration prior to tonsillectomy is equivalent to saline placebo with regards to risk of post-operative bleeding in the pediatric population.

"The purpose of this study was to determine if perioperative dexamethasone affected the post-tonsillectomy hemorrhage rate in children," said study author Thomas Gallagher, DO.

This was a multicenter, prospective, randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled study of 306 patients ages 3-18 undergoing tonsillectomy for either obstructive sleep apnea or recurrent tonsillitis. The chief outcome measure was defined as whether or not there was bleeding in the post-operative period significant enough to return to the operating room for control. A non-inferiority statistical design was chosen in order to demonstrate whether dexamethasone has equivalent bleeding rates compared with placebo. The non-inferiority margin was set at 5% based on a review of the literature as well as in accordance with our historical tonsillectomy bleeding rate. The study group received a one-time, perioperative dose of dexamethasone 0.5mg/kg (max 20mg). The placebo group received volume equivalent 0.9% saline. The post-operative time period was 14 days. All investigators performed tonsillectomy in a standardized fashion using electrocautery on similar power settings.

The summary of results show post-operative bleeding was stratified into three levels of severity. There were 153 children enrolled in each arm. The mean age of the chil
