Spirometric test in children with adenoid hypertrophy
Grażyna Niedzielska, Michał Kotowski, Artur Niedzielski, Michał Sagan, Leszek Grzywna, Jarosław Misiejuk

Introduction. Adenotonsillar hypertrophy is the primary
cause of sleep-related breathing disorders which may result in
pulmonary hypertension and right ventricle hypertrophy.
Aim. The assessment of pulmonary function in children with
adenoid hypertrophy.
Material and methods. The study group included 30 children
treated by surgery for adenoid hypertrophy. Spirometric tests
were performed before and 10 days after the surgery.
Results. Statistically significant differences between pre- and
post-operative values were revealed in the following spirometric
parameters: vital capacity (VC), forced vital capacity (FVC),
peak expiratory flow (PEF), FEV1/PEF ratio, FEV1/FVC ratio.
There was an improvement in those values after the surgery.
Poorer FVC values were recorded in the urban than in the
rural inhabitants.
Conclusions. The results seem to confirm the influence of
adenoid hypertrophy on the function of lower respiratory tract
in children.
