The efficacy of cryotherapy for pharyngeal pain after tonsillectomy was studied.The pain of 10 patients after tonsillectomy was controlled by the usual methods; i. e., neck icing, povidone iodine gargling, inhalation of aerosols containing antibiotics and corticosteroids, and administration of mefenamic acid syrup perorally (control group). In addition to these treatment methods, another 10 patients received shaved ice orally 30 minutes before each meal (ice group).The pharyngeal pain of each patient was scored 5 times a day by the 10 cm analog scale and the 4 grades of classification. Scoring occurred at waking, 10, 14, 18, and 21 o' clock. The amount of food each patient could eat was also recorded.The pain scores at waking were significantly reduced in the ice group on the 2nd and the 4th post-operative day (p < 0.05; Welch's t-test). The pain was the most severe at waking, diminished during the daytime, and was somewhat increased at night again in both groups (p < 0.05; one-way ANOVA). The patients in the ice group were advanced to more solid and more nutritive diets earlier than those in the control group.We concluded that pharyngeal cryotherapy after tonsillectomy was useful for pain control after tonsillectomy, and the analog scale was suitable for continual recording of the pain levels of patients.

To evaluate the effectiveness, safety and utility of Emedastine difumarate (ED) in the treatment of Japanese cedar pollinosis, a multicentered, double-blind comparative study was performed in 290 patients in 1994.<br>Patients with Japanese cedar pollinosis were divided into two groups; the first group was treated with ED at a dose of 4mg/day starting two weeks before the season and continuing for the whole season. The second group was given an inactive placebo instead of ED during the pre-season and the early portion of the season and then replaced with ED during the later portion of the season.<br>As a result, the final improvement rate was significantly higher in the first group than that in the second group.<br>All subjective symptoms such as sneezing, nasal discharge, nasal obstruction and eye itching were suppressed due to ED treatment.<br>In conclusion, it was better to continuously administer ED to patients with pollinosis from the preseasonal period till the end of the season.<br>However, when the ED treatment was started in the midseason, the outcome was good, although less satisfactory than the outcome of continuous treatment given throughout the entire pollen season.
