Özet

Objective: The aim of this study is to determine the effect of adenoidectomy, tonsillectomy or adenotonsillectomy on growth. For this purpose, we prospectively reviewed the postoperative changes in serum levels of insulin-like growth factor-1 (IGF-1) and insulin-like growth factor binding protein-3 (IGFBP-3), weight and height in children that underwent adenoidectomy, tonsillectomy or adenotonsillectomy.
