"Leaky integrator" refers to the VOR,which tends to always correct the gaze towards the centre in the event of a vestibular lesion,and thus explains Alexander's 3 laws.
It has been proved beyond doubt that the final results of septoplasty are often unsatisfactory and not as expected from the surgical correction.
Tonsillectomy does not offer any protection against rheumatic heart disease as the latter is an immune-complex reaction resulting from streptococcal sore throat,which is not common any more.Even in the preantibiotic era,removal of the tonsils was not advocated as a means to protect against RHD.
