Ear tube insertion for recurrent acute otitis media and otitis media with effusion


The insertion of an ear tube reduces the occurrence of middle ear infections and allows the drainage of excess fluids. The most common indication for insertion of an ear tube remains recurrent acute otitis media (AOM) in children and persistent otitis media with effusion (OME) with conductive hearing loss. We insert ear tubes into more than 50 children each year under general anesthesia.
