Tonsillectomy clinical trials at UC Health
1 research study open to new patients
Study comparing one dose pre-surgery oral or IV Acetaminophen for pain control in Tonsil and Adenoid Removal
“Does Acetaminophen (Tylenol) given before surgery, lessen need for opioids/narcotics?”
open to eligible people ages 3-17
Acetaminophen is frequently used as an adjunct for pain management in pediatric surgical patients. The drug is available in an over the counter, inexpensive oral form as well as a considerably more expensive intravenous form. This study will compare opioid requirements and acetaminophen plasma levels post operatively for two dosing regimens to compare oral versus intravenous routes given pre operatively.
