Brief Summary: Adenotonsillectomy is one of the most common ambulatory surgical procedures performed to children. Tonsillectomy or adenotonsillectomy have a high incidence of postoperative pain. There is still debate about the optimal analgesia for this common surgical procedure. Different methods have been described and used to reduce pain including; improved intraoperative anesthetic pain regimens, use of corticosteroids, adjustment of surgical technique, and intraoperative local anesthetic injection. Intraoperative local anesthetic is a preventive or preemptive analgesia which is the analgesia given before painful stimuli to prevent the subsequent pain. The main goal of the preventive analgesia is the pain relief with minimum side effects. The role of local anesthetic infiltration in the reduction of postadenotonsillectomy pain is still controversial. The objective of this study is to investigate and compare the effectiveness of preincisional peritonsillar infiltration of ketamine and tramadol for post-operative pain on children following adenotonsillectomy. This is prospective, double-blinded randomized study.
