The ENT specialist or an ear doctor will insert an otoscope to see the ear canal if the kid has fluid in the ears for more than three or four months following an ear infection. The diagnosis will depend on the symptoms a patient may be feeling.
A myringotomy is performed with the help of the general anesthesia when it’s done in a hospital. The procedure begins with the preparation of the ear. The ear will be prepared with the solution which minimized the possibility of the infection. When the ear is prepared, the surgeon will then use a laser instrument to create the tiny hole in the eardrum. If the middle ear fluid is the reason for the surgery, the doctor can apply the gentle section to the eardrum by removing the fluid through the new tube. This will remove the remarkable amount of fluid, which creates an improvement in the hearing when the surgery is completed. After this, the surgery is completed. The patient is then taken to the recovery room which will be closely monitored while the anesthesia wears off totally.
