Özet

Infiltration of the peritonsillar space in one group of patients with lidocaine 0.5% containing epinephrine (Group I) and with normal saline in another (Group II) did reduce the intra-operative blood loss significantly compared to the control group (Group III) who did not get any injections. The benefits of reducing intra-operative blood loss in children is discussed.
