Washington: Children with obstructive sleep apnea who had a common surgery to remove their adenoids and tonsils had notable improvements in behaviour, quality of life and other symptoms compared to those treated with "watchful waiting" and supportive care, according to a new study.However, there was no difference between both groups in attention and executive functioning, as measured by formal neuropsychological tests.The Childhood Adenotonsillectomy Trial (CHAT) studied 464 children, aged 5 to 9, at seven academic sleep centres."This was the first randomized clinical trial of surgery for obstructive sleep apnea in children," said the study`s first author, Carole L. Marcus, M.D., a sleep specialist and director of the Sleep Centre at The Children`s Hospital of Philadelphia.
