A Preventative Treatment for Post Tonsillectomy Hemorrhage 2017-10-12T02:05:31+00:00

Project Description

There are approximately 800 thousand tonsillectomies performed each year in the US. Unfortunately, up to 3% of children and 6% of adults have bleeding post op. This may require emergency surgery and there is the occasional reported deaths. Pain and dehydration after surgery is also a large problem. We are developing a treatment that aims to significantly reduce the rates of bleeding and improve pain after tonsil surgery.
