How I do it: chopsticks technique for hemostasis in tonsillectomy

, : How I do it: chopsticks technique for hemostasis in tonsillectomy. European Archives of Oto-Rhino-Laryngology 268(5): 741-742

We describe the "chopsticks" technique of simultaneous use of two instruments held in one hand during tonsillectomy. The technique allows the surgeon to simultaneously, retract the tonsils, clear the blood, and cauterize the tissue and thus achieve rapid hemostasis and a more efficient tonsillectomy.
