The recently published analysis (doi:10.1111/coa.13707) of Hospital Episode Statistics (HES) is the largest study of paediatric tonsillectomy in England: including 318,453 procedures conducted over 11 years, with a median per-patient follow-up of 6 years. It reports that 98.7% of children experienced no in‐hospital complications but that rates of readmission for bleeding within 28 days are increasing; with significant differences in safety outcomes (bleeding, pain and return to theatre) identified between coblation and dissection tonsillectomy across the study period.
