Tonsillectomy: following peritonsillar abscess is done after weeks: (AIIMS Nov 2009)
|D||8- 12 weeks|
a. Friends, Dhingra and Turner have a different opinions on this one.
b. According to Turner 10th/ed p 86-'The tonsils should be removed 6-8 weeks following a Quinsy."
c. According to Dhingra 6th/ed p 265-'Tonsils are removed 4-6 weeks following an attack of Quinsy."
d. According to Head and Neck Surgery-
e. Quinsy - "Most people would practise interval tonsillectomy for these patients, deferring surgery for 6 weeks following resolution of an attack." - Head and Neck Surgery by Chris de Souza Vol 2 p 7583
So, after reading all the above texts -I think 6-8 weeks is a better option.
