and speech impairment. The most frequent clinical signs noted by a speech-language therapist in the
case of enlarged adenoids and in the postoperative period include: preoperative and postoperative –
half-open position of the mouth, breathing through the mouth, reduced hearing of whispering voice
before and after operation, impaired speech before surgery, which persists even after surgery.
