Abstract: 

Introduction: Hemorrhage is one of the complications of tonsillectomy. Medical and surgical interventions including suturing and selected ligation of hemorrhagic point and artery, suturing of pillars and ligation of the external carotid artery (E.CA) can cause essential effect on controling of the bleeding.
Methods: In this discriptive and retrospective 5 years study during 1994-1999, 723 patients that had been operated tonsillectomy with or without adenoidectomy in Urmia University of medical sciences centers were examined and collected the data. Results: 13 patients had bleeding due to tonsillectomy and bleeding was controlled.
The results indicated that the control was carried out by the following procedures: 4 by medical interventions, 5 by suturing of hemorrhagic point, 2 by packing & suturing of pillars together and in 2 by ligation of external carotid artery. Discussion: It seems that enough mass of pillars is effective in controlling of the bleeding and prevents of external carotid artery ligation in some cases.
