Grommet insertion treatment is required for children with severe hearing loss, hearing problems that affect the child's learning, development, and social skills. It is also advised for children with Down's syndrome or cleft palate. Hearing aid and ear grommet are usually used for recovery. Grommet insertion is a procedure done in children wherein a tube made of plastic is placed to foster ventilation of the middle part of the ear in case of glue ears. A few other reasons for such ear operations would be frequent ear infections and tympanic membrane's retractions. The ear grommet insertion procedure is done under general anesthesia and the time taken for the procedure is around 30 minutes. The surgery is performed in three stages- First, an incision is made in the tympanic membrane. Secondly, the glue is sucked using micro-suction and finally ear grommet is inserted into the membrane. The surgery is painless and a small amount of discharge comes out from the ear. After the surgery, the noises around might seem to be a bit louder to the child, but this is solved as soon as the child recovers. It is advisable not to let water enter the ear after this ear operation as it may cause infection. The grommet comes out by itself after 9 to 18 months. Antibiotics may be prescribed and regular visits to the ENT are required for continuous examination. This treatment results in the recovery of many ear related problems and provides happiness and peace to both children and parents.
