- HEARING LOSS IN YOUNG ADULTS WHO HAD VENTILATION TUBE INSERTION IN CHILDHOOD. de Beer, Brechtje A.; Snik, Ad F.; Schilder, Anne G.M.; Zielhuis, Gerhard A.; Ingels, Koen; Graamans, Kees // Annals of Otology, Rhinology & Laryngology;Jun2004, Vol. 113 Issue 6, p438
It is known that insertion of ventilation tubes can cause damage to the tympanic membrane and hearing deterioration in the long term. To investigate long-term effects of recurrent otitis media and of ventilation tube insertion, we used a study group (n = 358 subjects), with or without a history...
