Deaths after tonsillectomy

Did you have any post operative deaths after tonsillectomy, although it is rare complication- anaesthetic deaths from chloroform has been known to occur, heamorrhage in the post op period with aspiration into trachea has been a cause for death in rare cases.

Although this is reported in the literature, we have not had any post operative deaths.
