In this prospective, randomized and controlled study, 64 children were randomly allocated to in-patient or day case adenoidectomy. The pre- and post-operative concerns of the parents of both groups were measured and compared. No differences in the degree of concern was detected between the two groups. All of the parents from the day case group approved of day care, and 57% of the in-patient group would have preferred day case care.
