Adenoidectomy is the surgical procedure involving the surgical removal of the adenoids. Adenoids are lymphoid tissue located at the rear portion of the nose.

Direct laryngoscopy is a procedure in which the doctor uses a fiber-optic scope to see deeper into the throat than during indirect laryngoscopy. The laryngoscope is either flexible or rigid. Fiber-optic scopes provide better views and are better tolerated than older, rigid scopes. Laryngoscopy is used to examine and diagnose problems inside the throat. It is most often performed for the following reasons:
• To diagnose the cause of a persistent cough, hoarseness, or bad breath
• To visualize a mass in the throat or neck
• To evaluate reasons for difficulty swallowing
• To remove a foreign object
• To diagnose suspected cancer
• To evaluate a possible cause for persistent earache

Mastoid air cells are open, air-containing spaces in the skull, behind the ear. A mastoidectomy is the surgical removal of these mastoid air cells.
The surgery used to be a common way to treat an infection in the mastoid air cells, which usually came from an ear infection that spread to the nearby bone in the skull. Mastoidectomy is now seldom needed, as the infections are commonly treated with antibiotics. However, this surgery may be used to treat other problems such as cholesteatoma, complications of otitis media, or used as a surgical approach for cochlear implant insertion.
