An alternative to a postnasal pack for the arrest of perioperative hemorrhage following curettage adenoidectomy

December 1, 2005     Julian Savage, MRCS; Albert Pace-Balzan, FRCS
Controlling bleeding with standard postnasal packing following curettage adenoidectomy is only occasionally warranted. Children find the packing experience unpleasant, and removal of the packing usually requires general anesthesia. We describe a simple technique for packing the nasopharynx with bilateral nasal tampons via an anterior approach. The tampons are much easier to insert than standard packing, they are well tolerated while in place, and they can be easily removed with perhaps only some light sedation rather than general anesthesia.

We describe the treatment course and imaging correlations in a patient with a unique case of undifferentiated nasopharyngeal carcinoma with axillary lymph node involvement as a component of failure following chemoradiotherapy. To our knowledge, this is the only such case reported in the literature. A preliminary diagnosis of axillary node involvement was based on both positron-emission tomography and computed tomography; these findings were subsequently confirmed by pathologic review following dissection of the node. This case represents a rare presentation of a recurrent nasopharyngeal carcinoma and illustrates the importance of a comprehensive physical examination and correlation with imaging modalities when following these patients over time.
