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 under the influence of general anesthesia. The procedure begins with the preparation of the ear for the surgery. The incision is made through a laser beam. During the myringotomy procedure, the ENT doctor makes a small cut in the eardrum through which excessive fluid from the middle ear is drained out. To continue the drainage, the doctors sometimes insert a small tube inside the ear. This will remove the remarkable amount of fluid, which creates an improvement in the hearing when the surgery is completed.
