She was placed in the rose position. A Crowe-Davis mouthgag was inserted. The adenoids were removed with the adenoid curet. The nasopharynx was packed. The tonsils wereremoved using electrocautery to dissect between the superior constrictor muscle and the tonsillar capsule. Hemostasis ICD9 codewas achieved with suction cautery.
