Acute Otitis Media Following Tympanostomy

Acute Otitis Media Following Tympanostomy

Insertion of tympanostomy tubes is one of the most common ambulatory surgeries performed on children; they are most
often inserted because of persistent middle ear fluid, frequent ear infections, or ear infections that persist after antibiotic
therapy. Otorrhea is the most common complication following tube insertion and can occur in up to 17% of intubated ears.
