Ventilation Tube Application
One of the most common operations after nasal and tonsil operations in childhood is the insertion of a tube in the ear. The middle ear is a space filled with gas. When the aeration of the middle ear deteriorates after mid-ear infections or due to upper respiratory tract infections, this space is filled with liquid. Sound waves are transmitted best in the air. Sound waves are not transmitted well in liquid or solid environment. Therefore, when there is fluid in the middle ear, children start to hear less. Irreversible hearing loss may be encountered if not intervened in time. When middle ear fluid is encountered, some ear tests are performed and approximately 15 days of medical treatment is given.
