Es handelt sich um eine Groeßenkategorie!

Staging: Adenoid size is often graded similarly to tonsil size as 1+, 2+, 3+, or 4+. This grading of the observed size of the adenoid while the patient is in the supine position during surgery coordinates to 25%, 50%, 75%, or 100% obstruction of the choana, respectively. Alternatively, the percentage of obstruction of the choana can be mentioned and ranges from 0-100%. Remember that the degree or obstruction of the choana appears different depending on if the adenoids are visualized while the patient is in the sitting position in the clinic or if the patient is lying supine in the operating room with the palate reflected superiorly
